BBC Chief Predicts Speedy Vlog Growth

The BBC is keen to expand the online opportunities for user-generated video blogging, according to its global news director.

Richard Sambrook said the Beeb is particularly looking to further incorporate video content into the international version of Have Your Say (HYS), reports Journalism.co.uk.

[Last month, the corporation created HYS channels on live video-sharing sites including Qik and 12Seconds.]

Speaking at City University, Sambrook revealed: “We are working on pilots at the moment, which will be coming on BBC World channel quite quickly.”

He asserted: “This kind of video blogging is already getting integrated. That’s just started and it’s going to grow incredibly fast.

“You’re going to see very dynamic video dialogue conversations with the public opening up very rapidly.”
