The Rise of New Somali Media Over the Old

LONDON (HAN) August 13.2016. Public Diplomacy & Regional Security News. The rise of Somali content on YouTube is a powerful and not a documented trend. The Somali news media/entertainment has changed drastically over the past two years. While Somali network television channels use to dominate, these traditional forms of media are losing their original allure.

Now, we are seeing a shift to Youtube and people using different forms of social media to get their information.

This is a huge opportunity for content marketers to tap into. But just setting up a YouTube account, recording some videos and uploading them isn’t enough to get people to subscribe and follow you on YouTube.

You need some hard-hitting strategies that will draw people in and convince them that you are somebody to watch and follow.

Here are the fastest growing YouTube channels:
