Prime Minister Stephen Harper is turning to social media and will live stream responses to his throne speech on the TalkCanada YouTube channel.
“Social media is changing the way Canadians interact with politicians,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement Wednesday. “It allows Canadians to have unfiltered and immediate access to information. Livestreaming complements our government’s current use of social media…Canadians, especially younger Canadians, are no longer getting their news from just television, radio and print media. They are turning to new media in increasing numbers.”
So the question remains, should you be using YouTube? If you are a filmmaker, comedian, band, author – I think yes! Put your trailers, demos, videos of live readings or gigs up there. Subscribe to your friend’s channels and to other channels in your field. Embed the videos onto our blog, and have some fun.
