With the the rise of YouTube, iTunes, and the ubiquity of Flash-based multimedia services, internet video and has become easier, cheaper and more popular than ever before. Photo slideshows, interactive presentations, games, and virtual worlds have become more common elements of the online experience. These rich media provide nonprofits and policy organizations new opportunities to tell stories, advocate, raise funds, and motivate supporters. They also create new costs and expectations.
