你多久没有收到手写信件了?我猜可能有五年以上了吧。收到亲朋好友的手写信,会让人产生一种特别亲近的感觉。现在,如果你很还念这种感觉,让朋友给你写信恐怕不太现实,但你可以让朋友拍一段视频给你。<p>Twitter 视频业务负责人 Baljeet Singh 告诉 PingWest品玩,有研究表明观看朋友的视频的感觉,和收到朋友亲笔写的信非常相似。这或许可以解释,为什么现在各大社交网络都在努力搭建自己的视频平台,因为社交的本质还是让人们更好的连接在一起。<p>以 Twitter 为例,其主站上就能让用户上传30秒的短视频(广告客户可以上传10分钟长视频),其短视频服务 Vine 主打6秒短视频,还有 Peris …
