Facebook (kind of) Pulls a SundaySky with Personalized Videos

Posted by Deirdre Mills on Thu, Feb 06, 2014

To celebrate its 10-year anniversary this week, Facebook released ‘Look Back’ videos – personalized videos that compile and highlight users’ biggest moments on the site. This feature created a ton of buzz among the Facebook community with hundreds of millions of videos rendered (and its been blowing up my news feed for the past 36 hours!), but it’s not the first of its kind. Both Instagram and Google released similar features at the end of 2013 entitled Year in Review; Vizify developed a video tool that compiles Twitter users’ top photos, tweet topics, stats, and followers; and the NFL recently introduced NFL Now, a personalized video service that allows fans to view NFL news, analysis and highlights of favorite teams and players.

Posted by Seth Marlowe on Wed, May 30, 2012

Over the last several months, I've had the opportunity to meet with senior executives at top providers in the wireless, MSO and satellite TV markets.  A consistent theme is that, despite significant investments in technology, people and processes, virtually every one of these companies is struggling with the same problem: Consumers are confused by their billing statements.  This confusion leads to high churn, excessive support costs, and a limited ability to expand the relationship within the first 90 days.

Posted by Dror Harel on Wed, May 23, 2012

When looking at creating personalized videos in order to more effectively engage your customers, an important early consideration is whether to generate videos in batch mode (meaning videos are created periodically and served when the customer clicks to view the video), or in real time (meaning videos are created at the time the consumer clicks to view the video).
