My husband and I love to ski. And since we live in Texas (for now…), that doesn’t happen nearly enough. So, we must live vicariously through the pros who post kick-ass videos—like this one and this one—of adventures on their super fats in the back country doin’ rodeos and grabin’ tree tops.
We noticed most of the videos we watch are on Vimeo rather than YouTube. With all the traffic YouTube gets, why would these guys use Vimeo? What are the pros and cons of each platform?
This post from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism’s Craig Newman explains just that. In a nutshell, Vimeo is for the pros and YouTube is for the hacks—in production value, that is. But, of course, YouTube has popularity and ease of use.
Newman goes into more detail, so you’ll want to check out the complete story for all the details. But which should you use? Both, of course.
