Speaking directly to an audience has never been easier. Social media allows creators to connect directly with their audience, rather than going through a traditional publishing route. This not only allows for a boom in community but also a boom in creativity. It is a blast to scroll through YouTube and see how creators are vlogging and connecting with their audience. It’s enough to make you want to pick up your camera and get vlogging yourself. And why shouldn’t you?! Check out these vloggers on YouTube for ideas, inspiration and perhaps the push you need to start creating your own content. And to stay in-the-know on all things Sony, don't forget to subscribe to the Alpha Universe YouTube Channel.
