Gone In 6 Seconds: Video, Engagement, and Storytelling in the Social Media Landscape

New social media platforms are completely changing the game of engagement and storytelling. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, and Vine – just to name a few – have content creators thinking less about longer form content and more about designing and distributing video content that is no more than 30, 15, or even 6-seconds long. How can you more effectively use video in your social strategy and what kind of video content works best on each platform?
