Watch to see and hear why I think Tout will soon become another "must-have" social media tool:
When Michelle Maskaly (My Tail Hurts from Wagging So Much) introduced us to Tout the first morning at Global Pet Expo last week, I got excited about it right away. We had a ball with it creating clips of our BlogPaws Best awards, as you can see.
We discovered that Michelle is an amazing "director" of the 15-second short form video! With a few words and gestures, she got our award recipients, Chloe, Felissa, and even me, comfortable and most of the clips were done in one "take." I think I'm tied for the worst record, requiring 4 or 5 do-overs on one clip. The clip above took two.
I see Tout as a natural companion to the way we use Twitter. You can create and share messages or information, as I did here, do quick one question "interviews" with people you run into. And Michelle has even found a way to string Touts together to provide more complete coverage of a weekend of ICE DIVING.
Tout enables you to share your videos easily, both within the fledgling Tout user-base and accross your existing Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest accounts. And you can link to, or embed, them in your blog, using the code generated with a click on the individual video page.
What do you think you can do with Tout?
