A guide to "Capturing Motion" in low light situations

Facebook Video just took a MAJOR Swipe at YouTube

I just logged onto my Facebook fan page and noticed two prompts. One said now you can “feature” a video on your videos tab and the other said now you can make “playlists” of videos.

Facebook over the past few months has been giving a lot of weight to videos uploaded. I have noticed that organic reach of videos uploaded directly to Facebook vs posting YouTube videos has been huge.

Facebook just took a major swipe at YouTube and it’s game on when it comes to video. Here is what I expect for the future. I expect you will start seeing pre roll ads over facebook videos similar to what you see on YouTube. Last week Facebook bought a company that will allow it to shrink a videos size while maintaining quality and allowing for quicker streaming.

It’s all happening and it’s going to happen fast. What are your thoughts on Facebook video right now?
