1 in every 3 people you meet has an active social media account’, how would you react to statistics like this one?
To give you an idea of the sheer volume, out of the total world population which today, exceeds 7.2 billion; there are in excess of about 2 billion active social media accounts. Though there have been intelligent attempts to arrive at a precise definition of what social media really means, to you and me it simply means Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and the many other existing platforms which allow the user to create accounts and share anything the user wishes to share. However, depending on the type of the user, the social media platform of choice would differ.
The most important feature and use of social media platforms is the content. While content continues to be the king, the type of content posted on the social media platforms could determine whether the content posted was a hit or a miss. In today’s day and age where users/consumers/customers’ attention spans can be distracted in only 8 seconds and where people form a first impression in a mere 50 milliseconds, the content should speak for itself.
To make content speak and appeal to a viewer instantaneously both photos and videos have become extremely popular amongst users of all ages. This brings us to the main topic of this post which will focus on a few apps particularly relating to photos and videos which can help you make great content for social mediums.
