Youtube jumps the shark?
Youtube has just created a new 'feature' in which all their lame social networking 'related video' nonsense is forced into the videos you watch themselves. Here's what I mean.
Below I've linked a short clip from Fox News we published yesterday.
Play the video and then wave your cursor over the video as it plays ...
As it happens, you can go in and fiddle with the code and remove this new 'feature'. And we'll be doing that with all the videos on Youtube we post. But it's hard not to see this as a case where Youtube, facing new competition among video sites, starts forcing annoying crap on users and generates a backlash. Tell us what you think.Late Update
