If you haven't heard of IGTV yet, let me be the first to put it on your radar.
It's a brand new social media platform that is taking the world by storm. It's new add-on to Instagram that requires it's own app download.
What makes this unique is that unlike standard 1 minute Istagram videos you can now post long form videos. They need to be in vertical format, but what also makes this different than Youtube is that this is a social media video service while Youtube is a search engine service. That means people who follow you and want to see your content will be able to without having to search too hard.
It's only been out for less than a week so content creators like myself are still playing around and figuring out how to best utilize the service.
What I really like is the fact that it allows me to more freely upload raw/uncut videos so that uploads can be more real time. Youtube videos need to be edited which takes a lot of time. Now I'm able to quickly take video and upload so you can experience tasting events with me, or distillery tours or anything else in (almost) real time!
I've been creating #IGTV exclusive content such as 2 minute whiskey reviews. They're straight, to the point, no editing required reviews. I plan to do a lot of IGTV exclusive content since I'll be able to produce a lot more videos without the need for editing (and without the need of a co-host) so I highly encourage you to follow @MetahumanDave on Instagram for exclusive content. I will be a lot more active on their to fit the gaps between the Youtube uploads.
Once you follow @MetahumanDave on IG you should see a section that says IGTV which will bring you to all the videos I've already uploaded. If it's not visible, you need to download the IGTV app and link your IG account.
Let me know what you think of the new IGTV format.
Do you think it's here to stay?
Do you think it will force Youtube to change the way they show videos?
Listen to the audio Podcast below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
