YouTube iOS app now supports live streaming
YouTube’s iOS app has been updated to version 1.3 and now supports live streaming, quick access to new uploads from subscriptions through the “My Subscriptions” feed, as well as the ability to queue videos for playback on TV.
You can download the app from Apple’s App Store.
YouTube accounts and channels can be linked to Google+ pages
Google announces YouTube accounts and channels can be linked to Google+ pages. YouTube creators are invited to a beta test that could allow a single Google+ page to manage up to 50 YouTube channels.
Google said it will “unlock new features such as improved video sharing, live broadcasts via Hangouts”, as well as a YouTube tab on your Google+ page.
YouTube users can test this by visiting their YouTube account settings and select “Connect with Google+ page (beta)”. This would be worth trialling with clients who have Google+ and YouTube pages.
71% of Facebook users engage in ‘self-censorship’
Many users often type something into a social media input box, such as a Facebook status, think again and decide against posting whatever it was. New research based on a sample of 3.9 million Facebook users has revealed 71% of users engage with some self-censorship either on new posts or in comments. I believe this is something to think about when writing content. If potential candidates are unsure of an answer they’re more than likely to engage in self-censorship. This could lead to less engagement.
