#GuildChat for 06/09/17: Learning from YouTube

From it’s earliest days of “Charlie Bit My Finger” to today’s curated channels, YouTube has become a part of everyday life. The humor is still very present and but the flexibility and ease of creating and posting videos helps experts share knowledge, companies engage customers and talent get attention it may never have without it.GuildChat_Logo
