However, with the popularity and advancement of social media, the ability to create and share content easily, has brought branded and video content to the forefront.

The introduction of video auto-play on platforms such and facebook and twitter, has helped users contribute to the significant growth of this medium.  Average facebook shares have more than doubled over the past year, meaning branded and video content has a greater influence than ever before.

This is a huge brand opportunity.
