Behind the camera: The life of a social media content provider

MOST of the exciting moments are seldom captured by any lenses of the camera.

Behind the calculated movements, directed reactions, and memorized lines that we always see in the videos that were posted in social media, are people who barely rest just to finish one full video.

As a social media content provider, working under pressure is not new anymore. We even use the pressure as inspiration to all the videos that we produce.

I realize that we are not mere individuals who hold a camera. We are storytellers who contribute important stories that should be made known to the world and its generations through this kind of medium.

We serve as eyes of the public to make them aware of the issues and happenings around the society.

With the advancement of technology, our job may look uncomplicated at all. However, we work double on verifying our information so as to avoid misleading or providing the public with false information.

With the digital shift, social media has become the most influential form of communication. Because of this, it has also become the most powerful tool in shaping the mindset of the people in the society. The challenge for content providers now is the information to feed the audience to help shape the society.

Our passion and skills become our paper and pen. Indeed a difficult job yet an inspiration to be a part of molding a better world.
