Google + Introduces YouTube Slider. Google + Just Got “Stickier”

MyTitleGuy Google +So I was exploring Google + today, updating my business page, [hopefully you knew you can set up a business page on Google + now] when I noticed something a little out of place. I thought “hmm I wonder why that is there?”. “That” is a YouTube Logo to the right of the screen in Google + when reviewing your stream.

Rather conspicuous, it stuck out like a sore thumb, just begging to be clicked on. So. . .I did. It’s called YouTube Slider

How YouTube Slider works

  1. Mouse over the YouTube Icon in the top right of your Google + Stream
  2. The YouTube Slider will “slide” open and ask you “what would you like to play?”
  3. Type what ever you would like to watch, from Dancing baby to Chandler, Arizona
  4. A pop up window will present at the top left of your Google + Stream with the related videos or “playlist”
You can then select which video you would like to watch, share it with one or all of your circles or publish it publicly for all to see and enjoy. This is a best way to share large amounts of video content with your circles. What’s even more interesting though is this: Facebook doesn’t have anything like this. Just a matter of time before playlists start showing up in Google + search results.
The goal of a social network is to get us to spend as much time on it as possible. I have seen it referred to as “sticky”. Given that the average American spends in excess of 15 minutes a day on YouTube, the addition of the YouTube Slider to Google + means we don’t even have to leave for that anymore.
