Did You Miss Our Blog During the AR Shutdown, New Idea From YouTube?

Have you seen the new tool that YouTube has?  With AR on and off all day yesterday we took a trip over to our videos on YouTube.  There it was right at the top so you couldn't miss it, "New! Animate your own story or create a video slideshow. Try it now".

We couldn't resist  and in just a few moments presto we caught the gossipers (is that a word) on the cam.

Before you check that out, it seems no matter where you go, everyone is talking about Active Rain, have a listen below.

Just wrote a blog on the shutdown and need for an intervention. Once in a blue moon is possible, often having dead air is not good in any business application. We use the AR facebook, AR you tube and other Emergency Broadcast System media stream work arounds but your blog follower, reader, listener does not. Nor do SE with links to no where but static.

Hey Anne, no arms and no legs... what a way to keep the weight down.  Dagny, give it a try.  It must be fun working on the Chain Gang (now that songs in my head).  Thanks for stopping by Andrew and Diane.  Brian, we saw Xtranormal a while back, but this one was easy to use. Ed, you are right, you could do a little skit on your new listing or open house or how about part of your listing presentation.

Oh my, how cool and fun and great way to try it out.  Were those guys "floaters"?  I couldn't see any legs.  I agree it would be a creative and fun way to intro a new listing or open house.  Many possibilities.  Ah that You Tube.

Fun.  While Active Rain was down I signed two new listing agreements.  That gives me a reason to dance in the Rain puddles once again.

Hi Al and Peggy - The writers for your animation sequences are very creative.  They ought to join the Writers' Guild.

Posted by FN LN over 7 years ago

Al & Peggy - This is pretty funny.  I have been hearing and seeing this type of animation more frequently. Glad AR is back up and running. Hope it stays that way!
