As one of the newest members to the SoftLayer family, let me make something clear: One of the biggest changes in SoftLayer’s social media presence is directly a result of me. Okay … well I might not have directly initiated the change, but I like to think that when you’re a new kid on the block, you have to stick together with the other new editions. My new BFF and partner in crime at SL is the SoftLayer Channel on YouTube. He’s replaced SoftLayerTube Channel (though I should be clear that I haven’t replaced anyone … just become a big help to our registered Social Media Ninja KHazard).
This blog is my first major contribution to the InnerLayer, and when I was asked to write it I must admit I was very excited. On literally my 6th day of work, my hope was to make a major impact or at least prove that a ninja-in-training (that would be me) can hold her own with a full-fledged ninja … but I digress. The real reason I’m here is to talk about our move from SoftLayerTube to SoftLayer. With a little YouTube wizardry and some help from our friends in Mountain View, CA, we’ve been able to take the help of the better-branded /SoftLayer account.
Don’t worry, you are not going to lose any of your favorite SL videos … They’re just taking a permanent trip to the SoftLayer channel.
