It doesn’t take much to distract me so when I received an email from Animoto inviting me to create a video of the best of 2012 from my Facebook photo albums, I was hooked.
Animoto is a cool online video tool that makes it easy to create videos by simply uploading photos, choosing a sound track, adding text and clicking a button to produce the video.
Now, you can click a button and their Best of 2012 app connects to your Facebook profile to create a video from a random selection of the images you’ve uploaded over the year. Once the video is produced, you can preview and edit. It takes about two minutes.
I immediately created a video and edited it to include only videos from my recent trek in Peru, to Machu Picchu. Once complete, it’s easy to share the video on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
This is a fun, fast and easy way to repurpose your Facebook photo albums into videos and get more visibility for your brand and business.
