Google May Present YouTube As a Social Network

Already for several times we heard that the social media giant Facebook overcome Google’s financial web space in a very meticulous way. This strategy is just to transform the social network into a kind of “intra-web”, which will be able to take all the content that the user seeks on the social network.

The tech giant Google is seeking to respond, the formula has yet been found, but now it may possible that the tech giant Google can turn the giant online video platform YouTube into a social network.

According to the information provided by the sources, the tech giant Google has the plan to turn its giant online video platform YouTube on a pure and simple social networking site.

In the middle of the competition generated by the popular social media platforms like Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter, the giant online video platform YouTube is developing internally a feature dubbed as “Backstage” that allows users to share photos, surveys, links, text messages and videos with subscribers.

Backstage can be released by the end of this year and will also be designed as applications for the mobile devices. Initially, they will give the access to this new service to the most influential and popular YouTube users, then progressively it will be released to the general public.

Basically, Backstage will be a service where shared posts will be displayed in reverse chronological order and the subscribed users can simply follow the news through a timeline and can simply receive notifications. It may be a middle ground between what we know and what Facebook and Twitter offers.

Thus, the Backstage can mark a fundamental change in YouTube, whose sole focus was the video that not even had a very successful integration with its current social network Google Plus.

At this point, there are many YouTubers who have their popular video channels in the Google service but communicate with their followers through Facebook. However, the attack is launched, as the microblogging, Twitter itself is also in the competition at this market as desire as already shown with the viewing experience of the Olympics and NFL games. While the tech giant Google spokesman said that “we do not comment on rumors or speculation”.
