YouTube Enters The Stream June 12, 2009

YouTube has just enabled a new feature that allows users to directly share their recently uploaded videos to Facebook, Twitter, and Google Reader. This means you’ll be able to syndicate your newly uploaded content directly into your friends’ feeds. You can link your accounts on YouTube’s ‘Upload’ page.

This isn’t exactly a novel feature — many web services have already tied into Facebook, Twitter, and to a lesser extent, Google Reader. But it is notable given the rivalry between Facebook and Google, which which have previously sparred over “openness” and their abilities to tap into the social graph.[…]

This is also going to have a major impact on existing video sharing services on Twitter, like TwitVid. These smaller Twitter-specific services do have one advantage over YouTube for the time being, though: unlike TwitPic, YouTube doesn’t allow you to enter a message to share alongside your video link, which means you won’t be able to share any context with it.
