Video killed the radio star. And, the messenger button!

Video trumps again. But the better news is Vervid- it will help you with your videos 🙂

It’s just part of Facebook’s effort to make their video live stream easily accessible as the trend of people using their smartphones to capture and share video of their lives continues to soar. Messenger doesn’t go away, it just takes a back seat so the video application can be highlighted.

What else do you need to know about this smartphone video trend, thing?

More and more folks are recording in portrait (err. vertical) because it’s just plain easier to hold the phone that way and there’s less moving the phone from left-to-right to make the video adjust to your screen.

94% of the time, we hold our phone vertically.
it’s ergonomically easier.

But then what? Are you someone who doesn’t edit the video or even share it?

You take this fun video with your phone (vertically) –which is great because you can easily share it==but wait, to where?  and what if you just need to share, like, 20 seconds of it for folks to get the gist? If you Snapchat it –it disappears. Periscope it and you have a few steps to save and post somewhere else–it’s no longer spontaneous. And still. It’s too long. It’s not funny unless you cut to the chase.

 

According to Vervid’s recent studies, the average user that shots video with one hand

  • a) shoots with their native camera app,
  • b) lets that content sit on their phones, never to be shared,
  • c) never edits those clips because there are no editors built for vertical video, and
  • d) if they do share outwardly, it’s to Facebook.

Here’s your VERVID solution@!! I love this 🙂 I promise, it will help with your video posting adventures! Download it from the Appstore. I would have posted an example, but dang it–nothing funny is happening today. Well, I mean that I can post:)

Here’s what Vervid has to say on their blog!

“Vervid solves all of that. For the first time ever, users can import HD video that’s been shot in portrait mode into an editor that’s built for easy, one-handed use that makes video editing as easy as texting. They can stitch together related moments, share them with friends on Vervid, and then share out to Facebook and Twitter. We’re enabling the average user to tell more meaningful stories with the personal video content they’ve captured, and we’re making it easier than ever to archive those moments.” 

 

Happy video editing and posting on Facebook!
