New Personalised Homepage and Improved Email Notifications

The new features included in our most recent site update are geared toward a more personalised experience for you. Here is a quick rundown...



NEW PERSONALISED HOMEPAGE



Our goal is to give a simple answer to the question, "What should I watch today?" with a personalised, customisable homepage that makes it easy to find the videos and the people that you care about. After reviewing results from our beta test and feedback from the community, we're happy to now release the new personalised homepage to all logged-in users. Since launching the beta version in February, data has shown an increase in the number of users visiting the homepage, the frequency of visits and the number of subscriptions users make over time. So, this optimised version of the homepage not only means a customisable experience for you, but more exposure for your YouTube videos and channels (Note: if you are logged out or do not have an account, you won't be able to access personalised homepage and will default to our former incarnation).



IMPROVED EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS



The email messages you receive from YouTube have been updated with a new layout. In addition to a streamlined design and many wording changes, any comments or messages are now included directly within the body of the email, helping you keep track of your conversations over time.



We're eager to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think of this latest round of updates.

What is the system for the recommended videos? All it ever shows me is videos that I have already seen and favourited. I do like the "Friend activity" section. I'm still playing with the order of the display sections to find out which order works best for me.

but can we have the sender in the subject?

OMG! You Tube is such a waste of time!!! It’s really terrible to try to watch a video. 75% of all the videos have either been deleted or disabled! What a joke! It’s OK though Google will be losing money in You Tube in a year.
