Contour is a company that creates hands-free video cameras. Unlike most, they have created a social media site revolved around their customers. The company focuses on “modern day explores” who want to share their stories of action, adventure and travel through video. Members on their site are able to upload and share videos as well as comment on each other’s videos. What sets this site apart from other video sharing sites is their commitment toward making it easy to share and upload. Since they sell the video camera and host the community sharing spot, Contour has made it to where you just have to plug in your camera, edit if you wish, and then upload. I believe their Professional Storytelling camera would be a great tool for missionaries in the field. The camera itself is small and easy to use, and the integrated upload is very quick. A community could be created, as Contour has for missionaries around the globe.
