For me a good online community is where anyone can get involved, share, discuss, raise awareness, participate creatively in their own individual way. Sites such as vimeo or youtube I see to be a relatively good platform to share and voice opinion through video, the benefit to create and connect interactively brings a more personal meaning to any subject.The communities made up within the sites are endless, whatever your looking for, if it be an opinion, facts, inspiration or ideas it’s their. As a user your able to dig deeper into research and also reach out to other users emotionally through video and I beleive when something has had time put in to it becomes more respectable…Do you agree?
With any online community the sites have their limitations and challenges, being so popular and free to use can mean often coming across untrustworthy information and questionable facts. In addition, there are also the options to report, dislike and comment.If someone doesn’t like your videos it can be spoke of causing unwanted discussions and removal of content.
