YouTube RealTime: FriendFeed-Style Notifications All In Real Time [Do You Have An Invite?]
Youtube has always been one of the biggest video sharing and streaming site but the interactions among its users has always been quite limited but YouTube RealTime might be what users need. YouTube RealTime is a new add-on to YouTube in the form of a toolbar that notifies you on what your friends are doing on YouTube that was launched just 3 days ago. This include new features like letting you see who is currently online as well as what they are doing plus invite them to watch a video that you are currently watching, all in real-time, hence allowing for great interaction among YouTube users. Here is what YouTube has to say about this:
YouTube RealTime is a new way to interact with your friends on the site. You can:
- See a list of friends currently online and what they are watching
- See a history of friends’ recent activities
- Receive real-time notifications when friends perform an activity on the site (such as comment, favorite, etc.)
Currently, YouTube RealTime is still in an invitation-only beta stage and we have been trying hard to get an invite but have not done so successfully, so if you have an invite, please copy the link from YouTube Peeps and comment it here so that we can get an invite and give YouTube RealTime a try. If you want to get an invite, you might want to try going on Twitter Search for the invite link and click the most recent link that to see if it works. Other than that, YouTube RealTime seems like a great idea and we would love to try it out as soon as possible.
