If social media is not your forte and the terms ‘vlog’ and ‘blogs’ don’t ring a bell, we will gladly fill you in.  Blogs are a social story and online forum to communicate to followers, guests, your audience what’s newsworthy and exciting to share. Vlogs are similar but are recorded and shared by video and most usually shared to the world’s famous site for videos, Youtube. Take Julie Vu for instance, she has more than 336,704 followers all following her, her journey and stories. 

Today there are millions of YouTubers who create their own channels and showcase anything from makeup, travelling, cooking, fashion, car collecting and much more.


In total, over 75 Youtubers who travelled from around the world gathered at the Hyatt Regency  in Toronto, Ontario from October 23 to October 25th for a series of events including ‘Creator Day’, Gala Red Carpet, Gala Premiere Screening and screenings and meet ups. Media and of course those looking to pursue film were encouraged to attend the event. In 2014, more than 10,000 people came out for Buffer Festival.
