YouTube Heroes: Internet Vigilante Justice

Category: Mediasocial media Comments: No comments

YouTube HeroesYouTube recently made the move to get more social.

Under the still-in-Beta “community” tab, content creators (the artist inside me just shuddered) will have the ability to post text, images, GIFs, all the usual social tropes. Users can like and comment on the items in this stream, giving them a way to connect with the channel operators they most enjoy.

Sarah Perez points out that this is Google’s latest attempt to rejigger its social presence. (Any Google+ users in the house?) Social media is snatching up Internet ground like it’s post-WWII Eastern Europe. But is it necessarily a positive that YouTube is becoming more social?

YouTube Red Sees Green

YouTubeIt doesn’t take much searching to find tech- and social media-related stories.

the social robot piracy lawsIn our constant state of internet making life better, more and more websites are offering illegal activities with the slickest of ease. Whether you need to sample an upcoming CD, check out the debut episode of a to-be-aired series, or find where to purchase the cheapest cable cord keepers, it can all be done through the help of the interweb. Rights aside, these websites find a niche, and they help bring the past and status quo into one, easily accessible place.

And now that websites can be accessed via game consul and/or TV, even more are finding free entertainment in the comfort of their own living rooms.

Despite former hand slaps given out to Napster users and providers, these questionably-legal practices seem to be flourishing more than ever.
