Social Video and the Future of Consumption

Mar 12, 2017

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

There will be an encore presentation taking place Sunday, March 12 at 2:00pm. Hyatt: Texas Ballroom 1-3.

Video journalism on social media is changing astronomically fast. In a little over a year Facebook has gotten every media outlet to prioritize video more than anything else. It has shifted the makeup of editorial output, news staffs and the look and feel of consumption habits online. People are reading an endless stream of text-on-screen videos and watching untethered live events unfold in front of them. This session will dive into how video adapted so quickly, how the format has changed consumption habits and if it has all been for the better. Panelists will also discuss the latest trends and where things are headed.
