YouTube launched End Screens, “a new mobile-friendly tool that lets you engage viewers right as your video finishes and encourages them to watch more on their devices.”
End screens make it easier to create and showcase “hard-to-miss thumbnail overlays that prompt viewers to watch your other videos, subscribe to your channel, visit collaborators’ channels and more” in the last 15-20 seconds of your videos and allow you “to reach more viewers on desktop and mobile.” YouTube announced that the End Screens feature is now “available to every creator on YouTube.”
Facebook Begins to Block Live Broadcasts That Feature Unlicensed Use of Copyrighted Music, Introduces Online Courses for Journalists: Facebook launched its first-ever online training for journalists, “free e-learning courses inspired by conversations with editors and journalists across the globe who asked for a single destination where they can learn about Facebook’s products, tools and services for use in their work.” An interesting note in the Facebook Live training reminds the Live broadcaster to “Please make sure your live video complies with Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which applies to all content you upload to or through Facebook. This includes only broadcasting content for which you own and/or control all rights (or have obtained all necessary licenses/permissions to such rights), globally, including rights in any sound recordings or musical compositions included in the video and any performers appearing in it. Make sure to keep the camera on you, and never broadcast the unfolding event, including what is on a stage, field, or any screens.”
