    Google Is Totally Revamping YouTube To Make It More Like TV (GOOG) (click for full article)

    "YouTube unveiled the biggest redesign in its history today, with the goal of making the Internet video service work and look a lot more like TV.

    The goal is to get users to spend more time at the site, while also earning more money from advertisers.


    It's all part of Google's plan to turn YouTube's three billion video views per day -- and three billion monetized views (that is, videos with ads) per week -- into a major profit center."

    What YouTubers are Saying About the New YouTube Design
    (click for full article)

    "YouTube unveiled a new layout yesterday. Like the reaction to the new studio set of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart introduced back in 2005, opinions on the design are mixed. But that's really no surprise.

    Over 160 million people in the United States alone visit YouTube on a monthly basis. It can be a frustrating experience when something which that many individuals are readily familiar with undergoes drastic change. Like I described during my analysis of the new design when it was called codename Cosmic Panda, YouTube is like the remote control for the internet. And whenever the video sharing site changes its format, it's akin to going over to your friend's house and trying to operate their television when you both have different cable service providers. Aggravating, amiright?


    But before we get into the if and how YouTube's new layout has aggravated YouTubers, let's briefly go over the changes. Here are some explanations straight from the source:"

    A New YouTube, Herding the Funny Cats
    By MIKE HALE
    Published: December 13, 2011

    "If you're looking for evidence that the world just keeps moving faster, try this:


    Time between the creation of Coca-Cola and hatred of New Coke: a century.


    Time between the creation of YouTube and hatred of the new YouTube: six years.


    The world's largest video-sharing Web site introduced a new design this month, unleashing a wave of anger in blogs and online forums. It's visible on YouTube itself, where a video explaining the changes has received more than three times as many dislikes as likes, and many of the attached comments couldn't be published in a newspaper."
