YouTube Reinvents Itself - Massive Relaunch Focusing More on Curation | All Things Curation | Scoop.it

Janko Roettgers wrote this piece for Giagom announcing YouTube's complete overhaul of its site.

 

**Putting channels front and center in an attempt to become the Internet’s answer to cable TV.

Here's what caught my attention:

 

****The pages of video publishers are also getting a significant face lift, emphasizing the notion of subscribing to channels and focusing more on filtering and curation.

Tony Ellison CEO from Shoplet.com
