Sharing your photos and videos: Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube

socialSocial networking platforms have provided users the ability to share their day-to-day activities through not only words but also via videos and photos. Among the most popular websites where you can easily share and view photos and videos are Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest.

Pinterest is a mobile and internet application that allows users to collect, share and store videos, photos and other posts on boards. These boards are created by selecting a page, website or photo and “pinning” it to a board. Users can also browse the content of other users on the main page. You can then select and save single pins to your own board using the pin it button. Using this social network, you can gather and organize images or photos that inspire and interest you. This helps to increase and maximize visibility of your business.

Instagram has increasingly become popular in recent times as it enables you to take creative and fun photos and videos and share them on other social networks such as Facebook and twitter. It can be used by anyone above the age of 13 years. It has different trends such as weekend hash tag projects and throwback Thursday whereby you can post photos using the hash tag #TBT.

YouTube is purely a video sharing social networking platform that offers features such as playback, uploading and live streaming. This website allows users to view videos on other websites. However, it does not offer the ability to download the videos. Nevertheless, there are many third-party websites and applications that can facilitate this.
