Why Instagram & YouTube are so alike

  1. As Ben Brooks asked, how did Google buying YouTube make the latter better? (Ditto Yahoo and Flickr.) Worse, since Google’s acquisition of YouTube, the experience and community there have gotten worse, and competitors have risen to stake out core ground in online video – beautiful videos are on Vimeo, funny videos are on Funny or Die, etc. The YouTube UX is so bad that a site like Devour or QuietTube can exist and thrive, solely by improving that UX!

    Plus, Google still isn’t making significant money from it. Facebook better hope it’s Instagram acquisition is NOTHING like Google’s YouTube deal.
