Video Templates Are Big Time Savers

Do you remember back in the day when you were a kid and time seemed to bent to your impulses. The day will just drag on and on and somehow, you will fill it with all sorts of activities. Now fast forward to your present working life as an adult and gone are those long lazy afternoons lounging around with much or nothing to do. Compare that time dragging era to the task of video editing and what do you have? Video editing takes an enormous amount of time to perfect and polish. I edit video and have spend hours and hours burning the midnight oil trying to get video edited by deadline and it’s no fun. Well, not anymore thanks to my new trick. Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce you to video templates 101. I go ahead and click over to my favorite video template site Envato and viola before my very eye’s thousands and thousands of templates out there to satisfy my every need and then some. However, video needs to be optimized for mobile in order for you to reap maximum benefits. So make sure your template choices are mobile worthy. For example, check out the following video I edited;

This video was created using Adobe’s After Effect template. And it was completed in no time. This is why I am big user of templates, they save you a tremendous amount of time. Not to mention that the templates already include animated graphics, audio effects and background music. I promise you I am not a spokesperson for Envato in case you are wondering why I keep raving about them. I am just a good curator of video templates and I know where the “good stuff” lives!

News Feed Ranking

In January 2018, Facebook announced that they were going to shift ranking to make News Feed more about connecting with people and less about consuming media in isolation. In this video, Mark Hull, director of product management, explains how Facebook is making changes to create more opportunities for people to interact with others they care about most.




Facebook News Feed is made up of stories from friends, Pages people have chosen to follow and groups people joined. Ranking is the process Facebook uses to organize all of those stories so that people can see the most relevant content at the top, every time the person opens Facebook.

Ranking has four elements: the available inventory of stories; the signals, or data points that can inform ranking decisions; the predictions Facebook makes, including how likely Facebook thinks you are to comment on a story, share with a friend, etc; and a relevancy score for each story. In this video,  Adam Mosseri, Head of News Feed walks you through how it all comes together.
