When I first applied for my job at Faronics, one of the first things I had to do was to write an article on Faronics.
I didn’t know anything about the company. In fact I wasn’t sure if the opportunity was even worth considering. I wasn’t interested in spending too much time on the task, so a day spent researching and learning about Faronics seemed like a LOT of work; especially with no guarantees.
I decided the fastest and easiest way to complete this was to rely on my number one source for information: YouTube.
Unlike the research I would have done through Google, the videos I found on YouTube actually made sense. I was lucky enough to find a video of a sales manager describing in detail two of the products. I immediately understood. I never would have gained this knowledge from Google.
Since that time the Faronics YouTube channel has grown a lot! –Yet, it still achieves the goal of making software easy enough for everyone to understand. For example, take our Layered Security video. Explaining the combination of anti-virus, application whitelisting, and instant system restore was confusing to some people, so we made a video. Now when people watch the video, they get it. It just makes sense.
How do you prefer to learn? Do you rely on Google or YouTube?
