The divine act of Video Sharing on Facebook
Share it, enjoy it and post another one. One of the most ideal moments in the day of an admin social networker as myself, is the regular discovery of a good, short and entertaining video clip. This particular discovery is most commonly pursued on the likes of our darling Faceboook. As jubilant as is make me to see that a friend has recently enjoyed a trip to a museum (as seen in her photo album titled; Trip to the Museum), or that she is currently recovering from an STD as a result of a wild foam party in Budapest(this was naturally also stated in her status), nothing makes my smile stretch as when he/she has posted a decent video on their page.
A nice short video clip of almost anything; dolphins demonstrating back-flips, Cuban babies dancing samba or even an introductory type of video such as ” how to eat Sushi in Japan”. Music videos are equally appreciated, yet there is something extra with a video clip of random content shared by your Facebook friends. We are naturally keen to watch the clips put up by our friends,suggestively because through our friends the short films have already passed through a type of “selection process”. We trust that some of our friends share a somewhat similar taste in humor and interests. Surely sometimes you come across a few videos that are simply utter nonsense. Yet the task of enjoying a video follows a natural progression of trial and error, if someone fails to provide you with an interesting video a couple of times consecutively, then they lose their video sharing credibility even if they write ” amazingly hilarious watch this” on the sideline, you will refrain from actually doing so, because the last 12 videos posted on Norwegian samurai’s were a complete flop.
Then you have certain individuals whom tend to generally present good quality entertainment, those are the people who’s pages you regularly go on to, and they also always seem to have a new piece ready to be widely distributed. The two groups of video- sharers are equally important, for as much as we love the good quality ones, it is crucial that we also take our time to view the less interesting ones, this simply so that the video sharing democracy continuous. We want everyone to feel as if they have place in the grand scale platform of video sharing. Then there is the most crucial factor of this act, that being the duration of a clip. The ultimate video shared on a social networking site should not be too long, as I am on Facebook not trying to watch a full length film, rather I want an instant set of entertainment and that being approximately 2- 4 minutes, anything above is pushing it, but again it depends on the content. Ultimately the concept of video sharing on Facebook is a divine act and utterly appreciated, and for this purpose I will be sharing two of my favorite introductory video clips. I enjoy them for various reasons, they are cultural entities and beautiful in their own sense, I present to you; The Japanese Tradition-Sushi a satirical introduction for eating Sushi in Japan and San Benedetto del Tronto in 1972 an early German charter- trip commercial for San Benedetto del Tronto in Italy.
