Vlogging: Parasocial Relationships

 “Parasocial relationships are one-sided relationships, where one person extends emotional energy, interest and time, and the other party, the persona, is completely unaware of the other’s existence. Parasocial relationships are most common with celebrities, organizations (such as sports teams) or television stars.” – Parasocial Relationships: The Nature of Celebrity Fascinations

As promised here is the second post about vlogging. This one I want to talk about the relationship that is formed between the viewer and the creator. It is called a Parasocial Relationship. It is really one sided because the viewer starts to feel like they know the person on the camera. They feel like they know a lot about that person. But the person on the video doesn’t know one thing about the person watching their video.

Vlogging: Long Term Affects (Opinion)

“A video blog or video log, usually shortened to vlog /ˈvlɒɡ/, is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video (or a video link) with supporting text, images, and other metadata.” – Video blog – Wikipedia

I watch a few YouTube vloggers and one of them vlogs daily. They are a family vlogger and I love watching them as they do all different things from day to day. I love watching their family grow and just hearing their story. I feel like I know them even though I really don’t. But it has got me thinking. What kind of affect does it have on them long term?

Are Sam And Nia Coming Back To YouTube?

Just about half an hour ago Sam and Nia (YouTube Vloggers) uploaded a video after a month of video silence. Ill let the video speak for it self.

They don’t know when they are coming back but they do plan to post random videos! I hope they realize that they have a supporting fan base and that we want them back. It was nice to see them again and this video is sky rocketing by the minute it currently has 10 thousand views and counting. I know there are still a lot of haters out there, what i have to say to them is; we all make mistakes but God gives us a second chance, God loves us more then we can imagine and He wants the best for us.

Well thats all i have for you today. if you have never heard of Sam and Nia before please check out this site that i made on my spare time. http://samandnia.weebly.com/

YouTube Announces YouTube Music Key

YouTube (Google) announced YouTube Music Key Beta” today. Basically in a summary it is a paid premium subscription music service where you can listen to music through YouTube, have offline listening and background play and its ad free. Sounds pretty much just like Spotify but that it also has music videos. its starting out at $7.99 a month whenever it actually releases, which is pretty much the same cost as Spotify right? It also will have full albums in video form, which is pretty much already there anyways and if you cant find it on YouTube you can surely find it on Spotify.

If its gonna have music videos, are they gonna be high quality? Because i dont want to pay for a music video that has quality of this video.

And btw i love 12 Stones so im not knocking them im just saying the video was uploaded in 2007 and its bad quality. If i wanted to just watch music videos i could go to Vevo, they have a lot of music videos that are also on youtube, through their Vevo Channels. I just think its not gonna go well because we are all used to YouTube music videos being free, and up until the last year or so all youtube videos were free. So we will see how it goes.

What are your thoughts? leave them in the comments, and dont forget to follow the new Ramble blog and share with your friends!
