Do you think Video is important to Social media?

Of course. Last time I checked the web was about new media which is time based and therefore includes the following primary mediums: film, video and animation. Film has become video and animation is the bomb, although the other day I saw it being called motion graphics….technically in an editing suite, video editing that is….motion graphics are the bit between pieces of video…the “effects” the ins and outs… Animation is animation just as a rose is a rose. This blog poses the question after revealing just how many people are consuming video opposed to text. Still don’t get why this should be such a surprise as we come from a TV culture…which is VIDEO and love to watch stuff….we are a visual culture and as McLuhan said. Post Literate. Who reads anymore???
