Video Is the Future of Social

This past spring, at the YouTube Upfronts in New York City, Google vice president Robert Kyncl stood in front of a packed audience of brand marketers and made a seemingly simple, but revelatory, declaration: “TV is one-way. YouTube talks back.”

Google+ Boss Admits New YouTube Comments Struggled ‘Out of the Gate’

Another day another story about YouTube comments. If you haven’t been living under a rock on the surface of the moon, then you’ve probably heard all about YouTube’s semi-disastrous comment update, which made having a Google+ profile mandatory for anyone looking to leave a comment on videos. While the backlash — as is the style of web crowds — was slightly overblown, it turns out that even Google+ boss Bradley Horowitz doesn’t necessarily disagree with his critics.

TELL SANTA: WESTJET AIR REACHES 10 MILLION VIEWS WITH THE NICEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR [VIDEO]

I love viral advertising that makes the world a better, more magical place 

Low-fare Canadian airline Westjet has earned a fan for life in me. I don’t go to Canada often, but when I do, I will forever fly WestJet. That’s the sort of brand loyalty that can be evoked by doing something nice for other people.

PHILIP DEFRANCO TALKS ‘THE DEATH OF YOUTUBE’ [VIDEO]

Starting at the 5:30 mark, Philip DeFranco raises one of the most astute metaphors I’ve ever heard for YouTube — that of the alcoholic father. “We don’t know if he’s going to take us to Disneylan dor slap us in the face or both,” he says of the video site. Apparently after having spent the last seven years of his life on YouTube, he’s learned to expect the unexpected.

MACHINIMA & OTHERS COME TO GAMERS’ SUPPORT IN WAKE OF COPYRIGHT NIGHTMARES

In the wake of massive copyright claims filed against YouTube gamers over the content of their “Let’s Play” videos, several major software makers and game companies have stepped forward to assert that it wasn’t their fault. CapcomMachinimaBlizzardUbisoft and others have taken to social media to report that the copyright notices being sent to inboxes of users — even ones from years ago — didn’t come from them. Rather it was the use of licensed material such as music from games that attracted the attention of YouTube’s content bots.
