YouTube Testing Hiding Video Comments-
Have a small biz client hesitant to let you market them with YouTube videos over fear of obscene or baseless comments from viewers? A YT test has been spotted on Android devices in India. It shows a new button at the top of the page– when clicked– takes you to a new window with the video’s comments.

“It’s unclear if YouTube’s motive is to hide comments. On one hand, by placing them on another page, the platform could spare people from having to look at them. On the other, because most users have to scroll quite a bit before they see comments on their mobile app, a button at the top of the page could actually provide easier access.” – Christine Fisher, writing in Engadget

Benefit is extra option of also being able to check out a profile and a sense of the person from the tone of tweets.

“Want to send a message on Facebook or LinkedIn to Guy Kawasaki? Good luck! But on Twitter, he (or one of his assistants) is truly only one tweet away.” – Neal Schaffer
