Youtube and Encouraging Creativity
It feels like every week there is another creative use of Youtube or they are releasing a new feature or R&D initiative. While looking for more examples I stumbled onto their global blog which covers most of the interesting Youtube news.
Here is just a few of the recent examples I have been exposed to. There were even more in the blog but these have made there way to me via multiple links, tweets and emails.
What About Facebook?
Annoying Dating and Weight Loss Ads: They're still here but the list of banned ads types is growing so thats good.
Facebook also have a blog but it's a little more dry than Youtubes.
On the upside the "Like" button has been a huge success and I'm also excited for Facebook Credits and it's applications for advertisers and potential to become a global web currency.
It seems to be that recently Facebook has spent most of it's time fighting fires, than actually doing anything interesting with the platform.
Note: I'm not a Facebook hater, just right now I'd rather hang out on "Youtube Party Island" than "Facebook Rule Town".
