Pivot to video

"Pivot to video" is a phrase referring to the trend, starting in 2015, of media publishing companies cutting staff resources for written content (generally published on their own web sites) in favor of short-form video content (often published on third-party platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Snapchat). The controversial trend is generally described by publishers as a response to changes in social media traffic and changes in the media consumption habits of younger audiences, but opponents argue that only advertisers, not consumers, prefer video to text.
