​​User-generated video (UGV) has exploded across every facet of the media and entertainment market. Consumption of this form of content has skyrocketed due to a dynamic consumer behavior, linear viewing habits, and the ever-accelerating shift to digital. This explosion of UGV is snowballing across all social media platforms from YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter.

Newsflare is the largest rights-cleared user-generated video platform in the world, placing it at the forefront of a rapid change in the production of news, entertainment, reality, factual and documentary programs.
