Online Video

Overview

Online video sharing is a popular and powerful activity for exchanging information. Anyone with Internet access can upload, share, view, and comment on video footage. Using video-sharing websites to disseminate tailored health education and health communication messages provides an engaging experience for consumers to view and create health and safety information. With people watching over 100 million clips a day, these online video sources can be a powerful mechanism to assist CDC in distributing current and accurate science and health messages.
