PostSubject: youtube bullshit   Thu 3 Feb - 21:39

For several months I'd had this unpleasant message whenever I'd try to log in on my YT account : "do you want to associate your YT account with your FB account or Gmail account" or whatever...you get the pictureToday I had an even more annoying surprise : it's simply impossible to log in, if I don't have a Google account! Why on Earth should I create a Google account just to check my messages or post comments on my favourite clips on Youtube? To get more ads and junk mail?It turns out that Youtube now belongs to Google, I guess this explains that...

Yes I think reading somewhere Google had bought Youtube...

Google's activities become really varied, and their size becomes so huge... They might turn in something like the new Microsoft or something...

yeah, next thing you know, Google and Facebook merge to sell out your privacy even more efficiently, yay!

I don't see that happen, they're competitors...

reminds of the Sega/Nintendo war in the 90s...they both lost against Sony and Microsoft in the end.Have you heard the news about Myspace? They're going downhill big time, maybe they won't even be around by the end of the year...I'm not sure I'm going to put the myspace link in Ummon's demo

I think it's more complicated than the Sega/ Nintendo stuff, Facebook and Google do not really have the same activity... And there are other big societies in the same "domain"...

I read it about Myspace, the new version was a bad move (It's fucking slow) and might fuck it all... They should really have remaint an easy to browse music based website...

well I'm hardly an economic analyst, so we'll see. But this Google-Youtube thing pisses me off. I don't want to open a Google account, plain and simple. They shouldn't have the right to force anyone to do so.As for Myspace, I think they tried too hard to make it look like Facebook, by focusing on the "social" aspect, they forgot that users are musicians for the most part, not teenagers willing to spend time doing stupid quizz games or "hugging" each other.I wonder what's happening next now. I'd enjoy a return to individual band websites, at least they made us look like a bit more different from one another. But other Myspace-like sites are now in the run for succession, and things are moving very fast right now.

i find reverbnation.com to be pretty good. they actually give you some $$ for views/song plays (its mere cents, but still) and their layout is a LOT less annoying then myspace, which i agree the new layout is fucking crap

The new myspace is reaaaaaaaaaaaaaly slow & pisses me off! I find that less and less people are using myspace & more are setting up bandpages on Facebook.

Myspace web addresses look TERRIBLE on show flyers or inside demo tapes, anyways.

Facebook isn't an option either, it wasn't thought for music bands in the first place... plus I don't want to contribute the slightest dime to the fortune of Mr ZuckerbergI'll check out Reverbnation though

Don't know anything about the shareholders and whoever else than Zuckerberg gets the dough, but I was referring to the fact that FB sells the users' personal info to third-party advertisers...Zuckerberg recently admitted it publicly. The worst thing to me is that no one seems to care about that!
