New Video Category and Tag Choices

Just a quick post to update you on some new choices available for "Video Category" and "Tags" on the video uploading and editing pages in your account.



SUGGESTED TAGS



You can choose from a set of new "suggested tags" when you upload or edit a video, in case you need some ideas for how to best represent your content. The more descriptive your tags, the easier it will be for folks interested in your videos to find them.



Just choose the best Category for your video, then click on any of the suggested tags to automatically add them to the "Tags" field.



EDITED CATEGORIES



A few changes made to existing video categories:



- Travel & Events (previously "Travel & Places")

- Howto & Style (was "Howto + DIY")

- Gadgets and Games (now part of "Entertainment")



NEW CATEGORIES



The following new categories are now available when you upload or edit your videos:



- Education

- Nonprofits & Activism

- Science & Technology



Since these categories are brand new, we need your help to populate them by uploading new videos or editing any of your current videos which are relevant to these topics. Once these categories fill up with all of your awesome content they'll be searchable on the Videos tab (a few of the above changes are already reflected on the Videos page).



More categories changes are on the way, so stay tuned!

The education category should fit in well with Gurus.

Nice work. I'm gonna try the suggested tag thing now.

i dont think the gadgets and games catagory should have been changed, as enertainment was such a broard catagory anyway and it;s hard to find the videos you want

DontShootSam said...

I agree with the comment about gadgets and games. They shouldn't have been added to entertainment. I think entertainment is too broad of a category as it is. Everything on YouTube is entertainment to somebody.

i dont like the fact you got rid of games as most videos in entertainment are very very different

how about a 'personal development' section?

Think you should include a health and beauty section. We have to use 'How To' and it doesn't quite fit.
