We don’t always say ‘WE TOLD YOU SO’. But when we do, we let dead anti-heroes do the the talking. And so while the ghost of Nasim seems to be cursing the rational of Google and Youtube, Facebook has become a runaway hit with their video platform. Plus your state and federal government wants to take away your access to local production studios.
In a recent test, we posted 2 of the same video on both Facebook and Youtube. Results? Over 3 days, the video on Youtube received an amazing 4 views. Meanwhile the video on Facebook was on fire with 150 views. And while Youtube ‘live’ has a lot of aches and pains if you are NOT a paying broadcaster, FACEBOOK LIVE ROCKS.
For variety, you can jump over to Fb’s acquired app INSTAGRAM and go live with chat there too. And when you consider that Google and Youtube have been shutting down features in their realm, maybe you’d think gootoob would improve their illogical algorithms and creator policies. But no. And your state and federal government wants to take away your access to local production studios.
We predict Youtube will become another ‘Hulu’ in 2019. And at the rate content creators are jumping ship over to Facebook, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Twitch, Tik Tok and Live.Me, look for (LOL) Snapchat and Youtube to merge in 2019. (which not surprisingly they did not)
Oh Nasim. You, as well as many others, chose to dump your eggs in one basket.
ALWAYS HAVE AN EXTRA BASKET or 3 – THIS BASKET NEEDS YOUR HELP!
A recent FCC ruling gives away local control of our public Right-of-Ways. It also allows cable companies to charge community TV centers for connecting to access channels mandated in the Cable Act of 1984.
Worse, this ruling restricts local governments from charging rent for commercial use of these Right-of-Ways. The rent multi-billion dollar telecommunications companies pay our communities funds Public Access TV facilities and studios. If this ruling goes unchallenged, PUBLIC ACCESS TV funding will be eliminated.
PUBLIC ACCESS TV needs you to Tell the FCC No to this Ruling. No to giving away our Right-of-Ways. No to giant corporations stealing our franchise fees. No to silencing our voice.
