A picture is worth a thousand words. And in times of social networks and audiovisual platforms, even more. That is the trend that is seen in relation to digital content, an area in which, according to the US multinational CISCO, 57% of the traffic recorded corresponds to online videos. In the coming years this figure is expected to increase to almost 70%.

But not only that. As they evolve and offer new tools to use social networks like Facebook or Tw itter are on track to become the perfect place for the diffusion and dissemination of audiovisual material resource.

In fact, the video portal for excellence, YouTube, receives more than one trillion unique visits each month. In just ten years of existence, it is already the second most important search engine and, being integrated with other platforms and virtual tools, multiplies the possibility that videos are shared thousands of times.
