The secret behind success of YouTube

with 2 comments

Paul Boutin at Slate says

YouTube and MySpace are runaway hits because they combine two attributes rarely found together in tech products. They’re easy to use, and they don’t tell you what to do.

And I agree.

Even personally I prefer YouTube much more to Google Video, though Google Video lets me download clips. Besides, Google Video wasn’t even available here in India at its launch ( It is now).

[Google’s] Orkut is one big monolith, which looses its usefulness and relevance beyond a point – the same problem with most of the ‘social’ networking sites. We built all those ‘social’ networks and then what!
