YouTube’s new design and features

by

As I wrote the other day, YouTube has gone social with their new social stream. They’ve had social features before but they haven’t really had any networking features on their own platform worth mentioning.

Yesterday YouTube launched their new design and here are some new features for you working with the video landing page. I start out with the overview provided by YouTube and then discuss these changes in detail.

YouTube Goes Social

YouTube Goes Social

For all it counts, YouTube has decided to go social. Not only in the way that it recommends videos upon what you have previously watched but also based upon what you’re friends have interacted with. This enforces the notion that Google is truly pushing the social bar a bit higher.

Pitch in for Red Cross and Haiti

I know this blog is about social media and SEO and so I will make an effort to try to make this post into such a post as well. So here we go: The Swedish Red Cross has launched a YouTube channel with a short message on how to support their efforts on Haiti. Please make your donation.

This is my way of pitching in next to donating money.

I think this is an excellent way of using social media’s ability to get your news out fast. Instead of running an expensive TV-ad you can engage your supporters online to get the information out fast and to those that can do something about it.
