Video Limitation #6: Text May Have More Authority

Most people realize you cannot believe everything you see on the internet. While the web is a wonderful source of information, there seems to be an unlimited supply of schlock and poorly researched data as well.

While this is true of the entire internet, it is particularly true of video sharing sites such as YouTube. There is a fantastic amount of information available on YouTube and Vimeo. While much of this content is helpful, there is so much misinformation (and outright lies) that many people have developed a healthy case of skepticism regarding all web video. An online article and blog post, may carry more clout, simply because text packs more legitimacy.

That doesn’t mean that video cannot get your message out to the world. It simply means that some people will distrust video content more than text content.
