WikiReviews Features: Video Reviews

video reviews

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth at least a million. Right?

We think so, which is why we built with the functionality to allow users to create and publish video reviews. This will be handy for those times when a paragraph and a picture just won’t do.

Here are 2 examples of when to upload a video review:

Example 1

Let’s say you’re out with friends on a Friday night at your city’s best blues bar. You’d like to tell the world about the sweet riffs and lush merlot you’re enjoying. There’s no way you’ll be able to describe the way that Fender Strat sounds on stage by using words alone. Don’t worry, upload a video of the band playing and then share a few details about your fermented refreshments too!

Example 2

The day has finally come. Your brand new totally awesome (you thought) thingamajig dinglehopper has arrived. Problem is, it doesn’t work at all like it is supposed to. You could write a couple paragraphs about your disappointment or you could upload a video to prove your point. Your video can show details about how this product falls short so other consumers won’t get burned too.

*Special note: Maybe it’s best to not buy products called thingamajig dinglehoppers from now on.
