Here’s a practice video for purposes of portrait mode vs. Horizontal and audio quality. This one was done holding the phone vertically.
Second practice, holding phone horizontally and speaking louder. A better result.
Third practice. With earbuds in the phone jack. Seems to be better audio. But I also upped the volume for media and system on my phone first. Also tested filters, which you can switch as you go.
And I really like that the link to the FB live video that i copied shows up automatically when I use the hypertext link feature for this blog post
Remarkable ease, wide variety, of sharing using Google Photos assistant

Decided to practice with Adobe Spark, as recommended by BU prof Michelle Johnston, for quick and easy video making. She was right!
Tip: Spark provided the embed code. But to make it show in this WordPress post, I needed to insert it into the “text” view.
OK, that is weird. When I did this first time, I saw the video inside the post. Now, i’m just seeing the URL. ummm. I did do an edit. Maybe I need to wait and/or refresh.
It also might be because I chose to put this on the privacy setting, which adds a no-index tag to the post to block search engine robots . Tho if you have the URL, you can see it.
And it appears that there is no mobile app – yet — for Android users – like me – tho it can be installed on any desktop.

Just put the URL for the instagram pix in here http://your and add the code to your blog post — in visual view is fine
Nice for single pix but for galleries …

Dear fellow journalists:
Feeling beleaguered? Even more so after yesterday’s rant by President Trump?
Today, I found solace in these words of a son of Massachusetts, of liberty, the country’s first vice president and its second president:
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. — John Adams
To all of you: Keep up the good work.
Here are the choices my JO304 class in multimedia journalism at Boston University came up with in January, just before the inauguration of President Trump.
What’s your choice?
What a need for reliable journalistic resources, in light of the inauguration of a new president who — horrors — questions the validity of news as told by most media.
At the same time, innovations in communications are coming at us so fast even a robot might have trouble processing them.
Here are some reputable resources for keeping up with both. I urge you to follow, join and subscribe for the latest on trends, research, training and hot topics.

Even tho I used the insert Url under Add Media, best i could get for Storify is a hypertext link, below. Unlike Thinglink, which does show up as an interactive image when you add a Thinglink URL the same way.
