Social media is big—but video is getting bigger. Part of the reason why is the amazing growth of live streaming.
Live streaming is just what it sounds like—a video that a person or a company shares, that offers content or insight or one-of-a-kind experiences. For example, you may live stream a special event or a reveal, to name just two things. And what makes live streaming so amazing is how low-tech and low-investment it is: If you have an internet connection at work and a recording device, such as a smart phone, you can enter the world of live streaming.
