Vloggo's slogan is "Share your life through video", and with cross-platform support for Apple devices, with Android and Blackberry apps in the works, that's exactly what it lets you do. Having launched in 2011, Vloggo is one of the more recent additions to the microvideo
blogging stage, and has been lauded for simplifying video status updates. Read more to learn about sharing your life through Vloggo!
Getting Started With Vloggo:
Vloggo accommodates a variety of social media sites - you can sign into Vloggo using your preexisting Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or WordPress accounts. If you prefer to keep your media separate, you can make a new user account by providing a username, password, and valid email address. Once you're logged in, refer to the "Settings" tab to upload a profile picture, and add a brief bio, location, or personal web address. You'll have the option to make your profile private by referring to the "Account" tab.
You can expand your Vloggo network by following your friends or uploading your own vlogs so that your friends can follow you. After you start to follow other vloggers, you'll be notified of their vlogs, too.
Get Into the Vloggo Network:
Each time you log in to Vloggo, you'll land at your profile page. This page tells you how many people you're following, how many people are following you, and how many vlogs you've posted. It also lets you know of any Vlogs you've been tagged in, and keeps a list of your "Re-vlogs". The Re-vlogging feature encourages vlogs to go viral - every time you see a vlog you like, you can Re-vlog it, at which point it will show up on your friends' Vloggo news feeds. The more a video is Re-vlogged, the more Vloggo users will see the video. This is a great way to know which vlogs are hot on any given day.
Recording a Vlog:
As mentioned earlier, the best way to get involved with the Vloggo community is to start Vlogging! Check out the record button at the bottom-center of the screen to get started. You can choose to upload an existing video from you camera roll, or record a new one. The recording settings are super simple -the only things you have to decide are whether to turn the flash on or off, and which way to hold your phone.
You've got 60 seconds to record your blog, and if you like what you captured, click "Next" to start uploading. Add a title, tag your friends, and hit the "Publish" button. Upload speeds are usually pretty quick, but ultimately depend on your Internet connection. In case your upload is interrupted, your video will automatically be saved to your camera roll, so that you can upload it again.
Your Vloggo account provides you with a newsfeed of all the vlogs from vloggers in your network. In addition to the newsfeed, Vloggo offers three simple methods for browsing vlogs. You can browse the Re-vlog section, which will show you the most watched and re-vlogged videos by you and by others. You can also search for your friends on Vloggo by name or username. Lastly, Vloggo gives you easy access to videos that pertain to you - all the Vlogs you've been tagged in are saved to a list on your profile.
By keeping options and add-ons to a minimum, Vloggo simplifies the microvideo updates. This makes it a great app for everyone from first time users to seasoned microvideo makers who prefer to vlog with simplicity.
