Vimeo or YouTube?
Most People Have Heard Of YouTube, its The Worlds Largest Video Sharing Site & More On That Later. But did You Know There is Another, Probably Less Well Know Video Sharing Website, which is Older Than YouTube ~ & Its Called Vimeo.
Founded in 2004, it Offers a Place For High Qualty, Creative Video Sharers. Its a Place Where People Really Care About their Work & Where Feedback is Very Cionstructive, as Opposed to That on YouTube, which can at Times, Be Almost Stupid & Destructive. Vimeo, Offers People a Place to Share Their Work in The Digitial Video Medium & With the World Becoming Increasingly Digitial, You can be Sure, That You’ll Hear More About Vimeo, in the months Ahead
You Can Join Vimeo Initially as a Free Member on The Basic Account, or Upgrade to the Plus Account, which offers Professional Video Makers, The Best Digitial Facilities ( YouTube is Considering a Paid Service as well, Though not in place Yet)
Vimeo Differs Slightly From YouTube, in That it Is More Simplified in Its use & More User Friendly, Offering a Series of Step By Step Walk Throughs, Compared To The More Difficult Interface at YouTube & Includes a Video Schools Link, which shows a Number of Tutorials to Make you a Better Creator
YouTube is Probably The Worlds Largest and most Famous Video Sharing Website ,Launched in February 2005 ( Now Brought By Google), it allows You to Upload any type of Video, typically of 10 Minutes In Length and is Recognised as The 2nd Largest Search Engine on The Intenet, Behind Google ( Facebook is Becoming Better as a search Engine, but not there yet)
It Also Allows You To Connect Your Social Accounts up and Share Videos With Facebook, Google+ ( Obviously) Orkut & Twitter, therefore Letting You Reach a Wider Audience.
