Surfing videos online is a challenge. Most of the videos we watch are short clips embedded on other sites, or links posted on Facebook and Twitter. Video sites do what they can to show us "related" content, but it's rarely enough to hold our attention for more than another click or two.
Showyou solves those problems in an impressive way. If you sign in to it with your Facebook or Twitter account, it will fetch all the videos posted by your friends and gather them in a single place. (You can also connect your accounts on YouTube, Vimeo, Tumblr and other networks.)
These connections are great for two reasons: One, they spare you from having to chase down videos across multiple sites; and two, you're more likely to care about videos shared by people you know.
Where YouTube encourages you to follow content creators, who tend to be hit-or-miss, ShowYou wants you to follow content curators.
The demand for the viral clips that have fueled YouTube's rise is stronger than ever. If content is still king when it comes to video, user experience is a close second. ShowYou, with its innovative approach to delivering entertainment, is worth watching.
