In this day of age, the world has become truly borderless. People are not only interested in issues in their own backyard but also about issues effecting us as a whole, irrelevant of where we are located. Social networks have totally changed the landscape and now youtube has given another avenue for anyone and everyone to share issues which most of us don’t normally know.
Fantastic step by Youtube, empower the world!
Here is one of the many that are being added everyday!
If you havent seen the recent Air Asia In Flight Safety announcement that went viral, you must! Its standard practice to have these announcement but how many actually pay any attention to it? Quinton Dinesh Thomas from AirAsia decided to dish out the announcement with a slight twist which not only got the attention of those on board but 375,000 people online!
the senior flight attendant in charge of the very cool announcement said :
I have boarded many flights as a passenger or when i was a junior crew and realized that during the safety demo briefing, many passenger read books, sleep or just look outside the window instead of paying attention.
What’s even cooler? I hear that he was a La Sallian, my former secondary school!
Youtube Rewind is a timeline of the best video’s or the most number of hits that hit our screen’s for 2011 . Youtube has become such an important medium for the world to share video’s irrespective of where you are from. In total, there were more than 1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) playbacks on YouTube this year , that’s a crazy number but my feeling is its going to get bigger and crazier this year!
Last year’s sensation Rebbeca Black countdown’s the biggest video of 2011. No points for guessing who was on the top spot but i can tell you this much, Kolaveri didnt make the list!
BTW – How the heck did Neon Cat get 50Mil hits?!
YouTube is testing a fresh new design for their homepage which is not launched to the public yet but i found it rather cool and wanted to get my hands on it. Moritz Tolxdorff, who is on Google+ figured out a way to get the new design by tricking a related cookie. Very cool indeed!

Here’s something very cool, you can now ask a world leader a question via World View by YouTube. The channel will feature a certain leader and you have the opportunity to ask a question or vote for a question that you think should be asked.
Very cool! Log on and ask your burning questions. How the world is bringing us closer to those who are willing to open up. Have you asked your question yet?
