Youtube launches its own URL Shortener !

There it is, we had to expect it!
Youtube has just released its URL shortener called “Youtu.be”.
The shortener will only work with YouTube videos, giving it a 100% safety rating.
This will help YouTube videos be noticed and trusted in social networks worldwide.
It will allow developers to do new things: “because the link contains the ID of the video you’re going to see, developers can do interesting things like show you thumbnails, embed the video directly, or track how a video is spreading in real-time”.
To use “Youtu.be” you simply “take a URL like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdeioVndUhs and replace the “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=” with “http://youtu.be/” to get: http://youtu.be/FdeioVndUhs Plug that shorter URL into a browser, and you’ll see it redirects to that video.”
This time bit.ly could be worried, not like when we previously talked about the release of “FB.me” and “goo.gl” !
Today is different, YouTube has built a brilliant shotener that will save space, boost trust, and will make everything a bit simpler.
Go for it !!

Bit.ly launches Bitly.Tv !

Bit.ly, as the world’s largest URL shortener and default for Twitter messages, has thousands of links passing through its doors every day. Because of that, it has a great deal of data on what’s hot and what’s popular on the web. Everything worth it goes threw them.
Now that the company realised that they decided to launch their own video program website
that utilizes Bit.ly data to find what videos are going viral on the web.
When you load the Bitly.tv interface, it presents you with screens of what videos it has determined are hot right now!
Now you’ve got no more excuses for being unaware of popular things!
