Socialcam: The New Instagram?

Anyone out there using Instagram? What about Pinterest? For those of you who are and are also keeping track of the “next best thing” in marketing, I have the latest and greatest:  We now have SocialCam. If you are familiar with the many other marketing/social media websites I would explain SocialCam as a mixture of YouTube and Instagram. In fact, SocialCam has been named the “Instagram of Video”. Let me tell you more:

The site that SocialCam is compared to most is Viddy. However, while Viddyonly lets users record fifteen second of video to post, SocialCam has no limits on how long a posted video can be. This is why I say this new channel of media is similar to YouTube.   SocialCam also offers a unique feature that I have yet to see on other video updating websites. You can shoot, cut and edit your video through their application. With sites like  YouTube and Viddy, your video must be edited and ready to post once you’ve entered the site. Once posted you cannot alter the video with the exception of deletion.  However, with SocialCam you can choose what lens to shoot from (Black and White, Grunge, Action etc), record and then cut and edit the video from the same location. Pretty nifty!

One problem that many new users of SocialCam have expressed are concerns about privacy. Like most social networking websites this one is also connected toFacebook, Twitter, etc. So a word to the wise, be careful what videos you watch and if you’re profile is connected to your businessFacebook or personal Facebook.  For example, some business owners have logged into SocialCam through their Facebook fan page to watch a video on best ways to treat acne or cheap ways to remodel their home and while this may not be an issue for some of these people, it’s always good to be mindful of what you’re seeing and who can see your activity.

That’s all for today and the newest updates in the Social Networking world! Hope this was helpful and it assists you in your marketing plan to increase your business and thus income.

Sounds good.  I like the fact that one can edit their videos on the social.cam site.  Thanks for the info.

I will have to check this out. It seems the logical way to go...share photos and virtual tours of homes together.

Interesting app, this is the first of its kind I have seen! This could be really interesting to use while making virtual tours! I feel like social video sharing is possibly the only aspect of social media that hasn't really been tapped yet!

I am such a geek, will check this out immy. Love checking out new apps! Thank you for the great intro! Funny, Instagram never appealed to me, don't know why. I am using 'be funky' LOL - and have so far used videostar for my videos. In the end though I love my simple Imovie app....
