A complementary integrated part of MyRagan.com, the new offering enables anyone who’s already signed up for MyRagan to use the free service.
An overnight email from Ragan announcing the service described it thus:
If MyRagan is the Facebook for corporate communications, then MyRaganTV is the YouTube of the profession
Nice analogy, perhaps reflecting Ragan’s overall ambitions in the long term.
MyRagan TV is very easy to use, just like YouTube, which I think will be a big encouragement to communicators who have yet to put a toe in the social media water.
All you need is a webcam to record your video with audio. Uploading to the Ragan site is simplicity itself. Indeed, just like YouTube.
And, just like YouTube, you can embed videos elsewhere such as in a blog. Just as I’ve done, below.
Congratulations, Ragan. Nice move.

I’m mentioning these facts purely in the interests of transparency – they have no bearing on anything I write in this blog about Ragan.]
