Facebook takes one more step into video

Want to master the CMO role? Join us for GrowthBeat Summit on June 1-2 in Boston, where we'll discuss how to merge creativity with technology to drive growth. Space is limited and we're limiting attendance to CMOs and top marketing execs. Request your personal invitation here!

facebookcomcast.bmpFacebook and Ziddio.com, the user-generated video site recently launched by giant cable company Comcast, will announce a partnership tomorrow. It will give Facebook users another way to create and share videos.

Users will also be able to submit short videos of their lives, and winners of contests will be featured at Facebook and Ziddio and on Comcast’s ON DEMAND video service. The winners will also be used as the basis for a new television series titled “Facebook Diaries.”

Facebook hasn’t been known for its video. Looks like it’s thinking about changing that. Comcast ON DEMAND reaches more than 12 million people. Facebook has more than 16 million users.

VentureBeat’s VB Insight team is studying email marketing tools. Chime in here, and we’ll share the results.
