Vanessa’s Variety for the Week of April 17th, 2009

Posted on April 17, 2009 by Vanessa
  • Google announced YouTube deals with a host of entertainment companies this week.  According to CNET deals were struck with MGM, CBS, Sony, Lionsgate, Starz and the BBC.  YouTube is planning on changing the layout of the website as well as offering professional video content.  Along with these changes users can expect YouTube to start charging subscription fees and showcasing online TV ads.  Some of the more surprising concessions were those that were made by YouTube to Sony.  YouTube has agreed that Sony features be displayed via Crackle, Sony’s video website, as well as control advertisements for the films and allocate all related traffic to Crackle.

  • Twitter has grown by leaps and bounds in the first quarter of this year and it doesn’t look like the trend will slow anytime soon.  If you are newer to Twitter you may want to review PCMAG’s list of Twitter don’ts prior to tweeting away.  Some of my favorite don’ts are:
    • 9. Don't retweet something and leave off the original Twitter poster. Always give credit to those who wrote it first.
    • 11. Don't #hashtag every topic. After a while, your topics will be ignored.  

  • If you find yourself struggling to decipher what these actually mean you will likely find the help you need on Twictionary, a Twitter Dictionary Wiki.

  • Thanks to Seth’s blog I was able to view this experiment on the do’s and don’ts of job interviews, and I can’t help but love the time that was put into this.
