I get questions about the prospect of doing video interviews. There are a multitude of sites now that allow for video recordings.
There is an explosion of video use on the internet especially among younger people; see link below from a recent article on my other site at http://leonardsipes.com. 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. 4 billion video views a day. 28 per cent of Americans are visiting video-sharing sites every .
I admit that it’s a lot easier for people to just to use their home phone and do audio interviews. Through Skype, you could interview multiple family members or business associates at the same time.
But new services are creating powerful mechanisms for video interviews or exchanging information with peers or throughout the country.
The technology is emerging and will only get better with time. See http://www.lostremote.com/2011/07/06/what-facebook-google-video-chat-means-for-tv/ for additional information regarding Facebook and Google+. Citrix (link below) and other commercial services may be better options.
I still believe that audio provides for a more relaxed interview; people don’t have to worry about their appearance. Video interviews are tough to edit. The cost is greater.
But within the next year, video interviews will be easier than ever to conduct. As long as participants don’t expect a ton of editing (minimized through the pre-interview) the concept may become a preference for people participating in MyLifeAudio.Com.
