Videos 4 May 09

The perils of a Bank Holiday weekend. I half write this…and never publish. Instead, I go to a village fete, watch some MayPole dancing, have a go at a Tug of war and stay off the web for the day. Then again, it never got published as there’s no product videos in the top ranked list for the last week. Instead, here’s something I’d like to see more of. A straightforward instructional video about the symptoms of Swine Flu from the US’s Centers for Disease Control. It’s a sensible decision for a government body to use social media for information, they’re going to be able to reach people who may not usually access the TV news or newspapers. Even more importantly, they’re not relying on a journalistic interpretation, which usually has a different goal, not information for to sell more papers or get more viewers.
