Using Youtube for feedback The social networking site YouTube is used by millions of users everyday. Therefore my group decided that to gain even more feedback we would use YouTube, which allowed us to upload and view our finished music video. From this we could see how many people were watching it indicated by ‘hits’ and people even had the chance to like and dislike the video. Using Twitter for feedback I don’t have a twitter account, however both of my other member of the group do. Therefore when we uploaded our music video to Facebook and YouTube, my group members decided to ‘tweet’ our music video.The audience feedback gained form YouTube didn’t allow us toimprove on our music video as we were given positive commentsand some people even understood how we were trying torepresent one of the actors- this tells my group that thisrepresentation came across clearly.
