The easiest way to watch, save and share your videos.

Social Media and Video

Social media and video go hand in hand. People are using the second screen to discover more about the shows they are watching on TV or to just share an opinion about what they’ve just seen. That’s not the only way social media and video are related. Social media plays a large part in the success of an online video and can be instrumental in making a video go viral. That’s why it’s important to know the unspoken rules of sharing video online. Learn about the do’s and don’ts of video sharing in the posts below.

We also cover some of the latest trends in social media such as Facebook’s video chat feature and the ever growing world of GIFs. These posts can tell you what you need to know and where to look online to discover the latest social media video trends.

We love sharing videos -- we love when our customer share with friends and family via RealPlayer Cloud, and we love when we share videos on our social media sites (find us on Twitter and Facebook!) that our followers enjoy watching. In February, we share a lot of videos, but some were real crowd favorites. . . .
