YouTube Launches New Homepage For All Users

Statistics prove that YouTube.com is one of the most visited pages in existence.  At the same time, anecdotal evidence suggests people barely give it a glance before conducting a search or clicking away.  So a new homepage has been designed, and it’s now launched for everyone to see.

A quick clarification: the overhauled homepage is actually available for everyone who’s logged in to see.  Which some people may view as an inconvenience or even a threat to their privacy, but also allows for a degree of personalization.

A post on the YouTube Blog explained that there’s now an "[i]ncreased focus on videos that matter to you (subscriptions, friend’s sharing, recommendations)."  Also, "You can easily filter your homepage to show only the latest uploads from your subscriptions."

Then other improvements include a system that grays out clips users have already watched, the option to remove any video by clicking an "x" button, and quick access to inboxes.

The blog post summed up, "It’s simpler, more personal, and it makes it easier to follow and watch the videos that are meaningful to you."

If this approach works for you (or doesn’t), be sure to weigh in.  YouTube is looking for feedback and so is almost sure to respond to if it sees a big enough reaction.

    It’s a heap of garbage, overloaded with things i have no desire to see or use.

    Not worth further comment.

    This new homepage is terrible. Something needs to change.

    At first glance, the new homepage does not look all that different, but that is only because we hardly paid any attention to the previous homepage at all.

    It works for me, showing me videos that are relevant to what I have watched, and a few other little things that makes the homepage look and present information better. Overall it looks more useful, not that we ever spend much time on the homepage.

    I absolutly despise the new homepage. I went to bed one night and the next moring, I saw my YouTube homepage had changed the the new design. Sad thing was, I was one of the users to opt in, HOWEVER, I jumped off of the new homepage design in less then five seconds. So now I am looking for alternatives to Google’sTrashTube and I think I found one: vimeo.com. Ill be registering an account their shortly. Right now, my Google’sTrashTube account has joined up with the Boy Cott group and I refuse to log back in.
    I personaly know (PERSONALY!!!) THREE PEOPLE WHO HAVE DELETED THEIR ACCOUNTS because they are tierd of GooglesTrashTube (the modern version of YouTube).
