Being a film major while I was in college made me appreciate the value of film and video in our culture. It’s everywhere you turn; there’s no denying that fact.

Combining my love of film and social media, I always find it interesting when people learn valuable information through viral or informational videos. Take the video above, for example. It describes SOPA through a video demonstration. With SOPA in the news lately, this video now has over 100,000 hits on YouTube.

What’s really interesting is that many people choose to watch video content rather than reading an article about a certain topic.

With the “Share” feature in social media, it is easy to share video content with others.

How do you prefer to get your news or learn about a certain topic? Video or written articles?
