How Covid-19 Is Affecting Video Creators
Hoping that this update finds you in good health.
Our lives and work have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic so we decided to produce a podcast about how it's impacting us and how it impacts online views and video creators.
Show notes and links of topics we discussed on the podcast.
Internet and video consumption is going through the roof. Seeing views jumping 30% across the board (link?)
Big jump in live streaming on FB, Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube of course.
Rise of Zoom and other apps like House Party that are helping people stay connected.
Platforms and Broadcasters are seeing surges in viewership
Ad money is drying up on YouTube
