Google+ attempt at gaining more users
Last Saturday (31st March) Google+ launched their first British advert on TV.
In a desperate attempt to grow the site, they have also added a series of new apps in Hangouts which includes +Slideshare (for co-viewing presentations, docs and videos), +Scoot & Doodle (for drawing and coloring with the people you care about), +Aces Hangout (for playing poker with friends, face-to-face-to-face) amongst other new featured apps!
User uploads to YouTube have hit one hour per second — that is, sixty hours per minute.
YouTube have launched a website which visualises what happens in a minute on the site- pretty cool!
In addition to this, YouTube have also added YouTuble Slam, which lets users create their own video duals in a video ‘battle’, allowing viewers to vote for their favourite video.
