YouTube has overtaken Myspace and risen to the top of the community website league, according to new research.
The study, compiled by internet analysts Alexa and covered in The Guardian, shows that the video-sharing portal has taken a 3.9% share of global internet visits a day, compared with 3.35% for News Corp’s social networking site.
Dubbed 'Bebo Bands', the service is being seen as a challenge to the social networking site’s rival Myspace, which has emerged as a big player in the web music space.
Monster.com founder Jeff Taylor is set to unveil his latest web venture later today; a portal for the over 50s.
The site, eons.com, will attempt to mimic the social networking success of youth-oriented sites such as Myspace, as well as including a search engine called ‘cranky’.
The Netscape vs Digg war has escalated to new heights over the past few days and is reaching some sort of crescendo today after a Netscape security hole was spotted by – presumably – a Digg fan, who promptly inserted a pop-up with the message: “Hi to all you Diggers out there ; )”.
For those of you not following this sometimes hilarious battle of wits, the conflict escalated after Jason ‘mad dog’ Calacanis offered $1,000 to the top Digg contributors to migrate to Netscape, which is widely viewed as a clone of Digg.
If you’re interested in what’s happening on the Web at the moment (driven by open source technologies), then taking a moment to listen to Tim talk about the challenges to the Open Source model will probably be useful.
There’s an interesting post on TechCrunch on Jobster and the amount of investment it’s recently received ($18 million if you’re wondering, with a total of almost $50 million), which raises some really interesting questions about Web 2.0, Bubble 2.0, the UK and whether bootstrapping really is the way to go.
I've been working on a project lately where there are elements of Web 2.0 (specifically Ajax stuff) that keep being raised, almost without thought for form or function.
The end result is that I've forced the client in question to seriously consider why they want to do something, and what the benefit to the end user is. Of course, this adds caution to future thinking!
The progression of blogging past the tipping point and into the mainstream was described recently in a post by Gareth Knight.
The omnipresence of blogs is further evident from figures recently released by comScore, and reported by eMarketer, which say that US blog traffic has grown by 56% over the past year to 58.7 million visitors.
If you’re a user of Digg, you should know that it recently redesigned and relaunched its website. This in itself is not that interesting since we always knew that was coming soon – however, what is interesting is that new categories have been added which make the site more useful to a wider audience.
On the topic of blogging, it seems worthwhile to talk a little about the blogging ecosystem, both for discussion and future reference (things change fast!). Like an ecosystem, blogging is a feedback mechanism, is most useful when you understand what is being said about you on the blogosphere, and unlike an ecosystem giving freely is more beneficial.
There were three engaging presentations about the Future of Online Marketing at the Commission Junction University event for advertisers and publishers in London this week.
The message coming through loud and clear was that marketers need to wake up quickly to the shifting balance of power on the internet.
There is no escaping the fact that consumers will increasingly hold sway in the fast-changing digital environment.
Paul Graham, one of the founders of web incubator Y Combinator, says we’re not in a bubble, and he’s right. There’s way too much talk about this mythical bubble. It ain’t a bubble, folks.
However, I think Paul is wide of the mark on a number of his assertions made when interviewed by Ian Delaney, who is currently writing a book on Web 2.0. Paul says he has spotted “a social trend that will last”, namely: “the startup world will increasingly be ruled by technical people rather than business people”.
I’m amazed that a savvy investor would think that way. Paul is a hacker himself of course, and a successful entrepreneur to boot, so I could be wildly out on this one. It just seems… wrong… on… so… many… levels…
