Graveyard

There were once many more social video networks. Over time, several have called it quits from both white-label and community-centric platforms, turning their business into something else. To be aware of this loss, including how it can affect your content and your audience, here is our tally:

About "Social Video Networks"

This resource is to compare and contrast the major and minor social video networks. Over the years, video networks come and go. Some are white-label (e.g. your branding front-and-center) while others are community-centric (e.g. audience browsing and discovery).
