Youtube your Ads SUCKS

Youtube Ads are obnoxious, loud, interferes in the youtube expected experience, everyone understand YouTube is a advertising revenue financed site, FREE for you to use but that doesn’t mean you are bombarded with more ads than the videos you watch on it, there are even overlay videos which even stop to you enjoy a video in full..WTH

It’s when advertising interrupts your common everyday vlog that gets to me. That’s the fault of the Partner program and YouTube’s current ad revenue model, though. Instead of allowing users to pay to have ads removed, people agree to have ads on their videos in exchange for being paid.

Adverts before the video wouldn’t be so bad.

But when an advert OVERLAYS the video you want to watch, several seconds AFTER the video starts, that ruins the continuity of the video itself. I want to watch it from beginning to end without being interrupted part way through with an advert for something. Weren’t the ads AROUND the video enough?

It’s seems just greed that everyone now a days agree with and the result of Google gaining a very dominant position on the Internet’s resources.

I would suggest using Bing instead. It’s NOT nearly as ugly, cluttered and VERY old like Google YouTube.

Actually Bing videos are clean, unobstructed and very beautiful. Best of all Micosoft is NOT interested in stealing EVERY ounce of your personal information for use of their service.. GOOGLE you score a pea in this area don’t just screw user experience..

Youtube has started placing advertisement into the system, it doesn’t seem to be voluntary, it’s forced view. We all understand the need for advertising, but I don’t like having to watch a thirty second commercial for every 1 minute clip I want to watch 😦 What you are going to see slowly is the quality of service going down while ads increase. Ads will increase so much it will become annoying to even be on YouTube just like watching cable..

YouTube announced it will be shutting down after eight years in business and will no longer accept videos. The news comes, of course, just before April Fools’ Day 🙂 you should have know it by now, it’s the annual prank day of Youtube.

It’s no secret that April Fools’ Day is a big part of Google and YouTube’s company culture and tradition. For example, YouTube did a throwback in 2011 to fake viral videos from 100 years ago and last year, the site said you could order all clips on DVD. In 2008, every video led to a a Rick Roll.

The company teamed up with The Onion to create a YouTube-star-studded video explaining how the site was set up as part of a contest to find the best home video on the Internet.

What do you think of this year’s prank? Which is the best you’ve seen on web today?

 

YouTube EDUcation Channels

With a bevy of new channels on YouTube popping up everyday, “Get your learn on at YouTube EDU,” says an erudite young student in a video promoting YouTube’s latest channels. Launched in 2009, YouTube EDU is a collection of more than 500,000 free videos from organizations and institutions such as PBS, Khan Academy and Harvard University.

Video questions come from educators at recently added channels: Deep Sky Video (astronomy), TED-Ed (a channel from the organizers of TED talks), Crash Course (an educational channel from The Vlog Brothers), the Sci Show and The Spangler Effect (famed science teacher). Each click will take you to a new screen.

Are you a brainiac? Join Professor Koval and his star pupil Olivia on a five question journey to see if you have what it takes to be a YouTube EDU star.

At the end of this video you’ll be asked the first question, which you should answer using the annotations embedded in the video. This will automatically take you on to the answer, and to the next question. Each of the five questions comes from a different YouTube EDU partner. At the end of the quiz you’ll receive your score (every score has its own reveal video, so play multiple times!).

Completing the quiz is a worthwhile effort — there are different endings depending on how well you do. What do you think ?

I have watched almost all the Cranky-Spanky Videos on YouTube and thought I will share some of Best Interactive Videos on Youtube i have seen with you, offcourse with the best use of Youtube Techonology.

See now that’s what I am talking about, have more such videos posts it in the Comments section of this post.

I know many of you are using it already, since everyone as an gmail account and netizens can forget there name but not there gmail ID.. It’s now been just a few days since Google launched its Buzz social-sharing service and started rolling it out to Gmail users. The feature will pit it against social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Google Buzz will allow users to quickly share messages, Web links and photos with friends within its popular email service Gmail.

Google Buzz comes after the company’s several not-so-successful attempts to strengthen its position in the hotly-contested social networking space.

Here’s looking into what all Google Buzz will do for users. If most of you are already using gmail I am sure you are seeing that new tab for Buzz below your inbox.. On clicking the tab, users can read status updates, photos and video. Buzz updates will also show up directly in user’s inbox as well as in a tab within Gmail. Further you can open an item to comment directly because it’s a live object with an open connection to the server that gets updates in all time. According to Google, 40 people whom users talk to through Gmail and Gchat will be automatically added as friends. Buzz uses information from the existing email accounts of users to automatically show updates and media from people they talk to regularly. However, it will also allow users to share information privately if they want. Status messages that users publish on Google Buzz and flag as viewable to everyone will be automatically indexed by Google’s search engine and be available within Google’s recently launched real-time search results.

Like other social services, Buzz allows users to post status updates that include text; photos from services like Google’s Picasa and Yahoo’s Flickr; videos from YouTube; and messages from Twitter. I say many of its features mimic those of Facebook. This means Buzz will eliminate the need for people to visit sites like Twitter to post updates or see those sent by people they have selected to follow. Google Buzz will also pull in updates from outside your immediate group, such as an active conversation involving some friends and some people you aren’t following. However, though users can view Twitter messages within Buzz, they will not be able to publish new messages to Twitter’s service.

Buzz is also tailored to work on smartphones. Buzz will be available on mobile devices including Apple Inc’s iPhone and those that run on Google’s Android software. The programme automatically includes contacts that a user frequently emails. Google’s buzz also lets users publish their ideas to the world or just to their closest friends. This means each update can be set to either a small group of friends or to the entire world. User’s private updates will be directed to Buzz followers while public updates will reflect on user’s Google Profile page.

So some pretty cool features, so saying that do Could it be Twitter killer? the answer is No, because i thinks it co-exists peacefully. When you post a new tweet using Twitter, Google can import that tweet and send it out to your Buzz followers with the rest of your Buzz updates. You won’t have to jump through any hoops or use any back-door methods to make it happen. Twitter is officially supported by Buzz — the same is true of Flickr, Picasa, Blogger and YouTube.

But the same is not true between Buzz and Facebook. Buzz doesn’t import your Facebook status updates. It doesn’t post updates to your Facebook feed. It doesn’t display your friends’ feed updates. There’s no Facebook Connect integration at all.

Google is going to have a difficult time building a userbase when everyone who has a Facebook profile (that’s just about everyone who uses the social web at all now) is concerned that they can’t see their friends’ updates. They’ll have to keep using Facebook to stay in touch with their Facebook friends.

With more than 400 million users, Facebook is the world’s largest social network; Twitter by contrast has only 18 million or so. Gmail’s unique visitors numbered around 36 million as of last year. Clearly, Facebook is dominating. Google is attempting to challenge that dominance with Buzz, but Facebook is at the same time planning to move just as aggressively into Google’s territory. It was recently discovered that Facebook will eventually launch its own webmail service. You can already send messages to e-mail addresses from Facebook, but the execution isn’t as smooth as it needs to be. The new e-mail plan would address that.

Codenamed Project Titan, the service would offer users e-mail addresses ending in @facebook.com. Facebook would become the largest webmail provider overnight. If the service is functional enough, it could threaten Google’s Gmail. This outlook could change if Buzz integrates with Facebook the way it does with Twitter. Unless that happens, though, you’re better off keeping your bets on Facebook in the coming year or two — at least if your standard of success is something greater than niche appeal. Here is a video to as i Know some people are not interested reading this lengthy blog…

So what are you buzzing now, let me know what do you like and don’t like about it… C U Next week, tell then happy buzzing…..
