Have you ever seen this YouTube feature before?
YouTube for a while. Or maybe because I barely use the full screen mode. But it looks familiar, though. I mean, it looks similar to Swarm — Digg‘s cool visualization tool lets you see new stories being submitted -in real-time, and shows you related contents. Only this YouTube visualization seems to be a poor imitation of Swarm. I thought it’s supposed to recommend relevant videos but it doesn’t show you videos which are related to the video you are viewing. I can’t see its uses other than visualizing random videos. And the video balloons are like unstable atomic particles that seems to repel each other forever. Maybe it is still on beta phase or an experiment. I’m sure Google has an explanation for this half-baked tool or a grin that says just wait and see. Though inefficient as it is, I must say this visualizer is an interesting and neat experiment. Visualization will be the next big thing on the internet. What’s cooking, Google?No? Me, too. I’ve never seen it either. I haven’t been on
Tell me what you think about this tool.
