Whether you deny it or not, social media or the networking sites constitute a big part of our lives, so much so that the number of likes, comments and dislikes define the identity and self-esteem of a person. Though it may seem funny but there are some people who treat social media as their personal daily diary. Everyone of us have gone through such phases once in a while since we started using the social media but we should be thankful enough if this phase was short-lived for us.
Reports reveal a growing trend in social media websites. Previously this type of entertainment was known as Documentaries and then it gradually evolved into getting the name of reality TV shows. Soon when the reality shows started gaining popularity, they were deemed as scripted and fake as there were too many whistleblowers that came forward to tell the truth about scripting all such shows.
Social media’s new feature of live videos
Just as an eminent spokesperson from Spiel Animations vouched for the extreme popularity of animations and animated videos, social media sites also saw this rising trend of people not being satisfied just with likes, comments, posting statuses and photos. It was then that they started developing a feature which is now called Live Video. Currently, almost all popular social media sites possess this feature and some such examples are Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Snapchat.
Will 2017 become the year of live videos?
Yes, you have predicted it perfectly as people are increasingly promoting themselves through live videos. While there are some who do live videos for encouraging awareness on something vital, there are some others who do live videos just for the sake of using the feature. You will also find a live video feed taken from the space of Earth. Nowadays there are too many social media sites which are adopting the Live Video feature. It has been reported that Instagram has launched a new feature which is almost similar to the Live Video feature of Facebook.
Live Videos – What is its future?
As per what experts are predicting, 2017 will certainly be the year of Live Videos but just the way different trends come and go. When posting pictures, comments, videos and making live videos wouldn’t satisfy the way in which people express, what will be the next trend to come in place? Will this make social media sites to go back to the conventional way in which networking sites used to behave or would it give birth to a brand new way?
Today live streaming has become cheaper, easier and faster than ever before and such trends are definitely going to continue. Increasingly large number of organizations and individuals are now discovering the benefits of live video. It offers brand new ways of engaging audiences in a way that people have never seen before. Internet pioneers and stalwarts like Mark Zuckerberg have all committed to live video.
As Zuckerberg himself seems to be obsessed with live videos, he tells us that there are many other valid reasons behind live videos being popular in 2017. Hence we can clearly see what the future is going to hold for us in the entertainment industry.
