New YouTube Homepage Launches

You may have noticed we've been experimenting with a new YouTube homepage. After countless user studies and community surveys, one thing came in loud and clear: the homepage in its current form doesn’t mean much to most of you, and could be more personally relevant. So the goal of this experiment was to put more of an emphasis on 'videos for you'.

To pave the way for this experiment, we removed some of the less-used modules such as 'Videos Being Watched Now'. Then we moved modules like 'Spotlight' and 'Featured Videos' over to the right side. All of these changes were to make room for a combined list of personally relevant videos made up of recommendations for you, your subscriptions activity, and videos being shared by your friends.

Recently we opened up the experimental homepage to anyone who wanted to try it out. Millions of users opted in and now have this new version set as their homepage. Many of the people who tried the experimental homepage filled out our feedback form. While not everyone loved it, most people thought the new homepage was better than the old homepage.

Here are some of the enhancements offered by the new homepage (logged in users only):

  • Increased focus on videos that matter to you (subscriptions, friend's sharing, recommendations)
  • You can easily filter your homepage to show only the latest uploads from your subscriptions
  • Don't miss anything; if a channel uploads four videos in a day, you’ll see all four - instead of just the latest video
  • Quick access to the inbox when you have new messages or comments
  • Knows what you have seen (videos you've watched are grayed out)
  • Remove any video (hover and click the "x" button)

Although some of you might miss some features, we think this latest version is a step in the right direction. It’s simpler, more personal, and it makes it easier to follow and watch the videos that are meaningful to you. So today we're rolling out this new homepage for all logged in users worldwide.

We're dedicated to making YouTube the best place for you to discover and share great videos. Please send us your feedback in a video, in the forums, on this blog or on Twitter. As always, we’ll be listening and taking your feedback very seriously.

It looks absolutly hideous, unorganized, and I can't make heads or tails of it.

I am also missing the list to see if there are new messages, comments, etc.
I don't want to see reccomended videos, there is a reason why I shut that off on the old website. And now I can't. I hardly care about friend activity, so why is it on the top of the page?

Don't fix what isn't broken, you just broke youtube with this.

This is a complete mess and needs to be turned back instantly, or at least give us the option to do so.
This would have been a good April Fools joke.

Atleast you fixed the upload order on the cahnnel pages.

dmarxs said...

It's just so confusing. It's horrible, I think the term cluster f**k comes to mind. I liked my old page, this one just gives me a headachne, I can't stand to look at it. I have no interest in 99% of the stuff on it.

And no, I will not get used to it.

mark said...

Once again you take away OUR CHOICE and give us what YOU think we want..

I tried the NEW homepage and didnt like it...went back to my subs page...then come back and lo and behold, you just changed it to the mess of stuff that im not interested in....i dont really care what my subscriptions have favourited or whatever, i dont want someone thinking for me and what i might like to watch...most of it is c.r.a.p...and dont tell me theres a X button to press if i dont want it.
I just want an uncluttered page of my favs and thats it.

thanks for ruining my experience AGAIN..

XboxLiveacc001 said...

I really don't like this at ALL!

Its so confusing and like others have said I can't see comments, so please could you at least put that feature back as it is very important.

curtismarshall82 said...

I dont understand, I tried the new home page and didnt like it so I changed back, yet you have forced me to have the new one.

Chris said...

Thank you youtube for providing me with so many options with this new homepage. Or rather, two options.

I can either see every little thing the people I subscribe to do, missing uploads becuase I'm being told about likes and favorites that frankly I dont care about. On the other hand, I can swtich to a far cleaner view, where I can be told soley about subscription uploads, but with no reccomendations or anything to actually do when there arent any.

Of course the answer is that I can spend my time switching between views, rather than watching videos I want to see, but I suspect menu hopping isnt the reason most people come to youtube.

Why cant you continue running both homepages, like you have been doing for the past month? Clearly it was possible, and giving people CHOICE must be the best way to personalise their own homepage, rather than you doing it for us.

Liam Radge said...

Wait, "increased focus on videos that matter to you"? Sorry, but this is total bullshit. If you're subscribed to more than like 5 people, the new system knocks new uploads off the page in a matter of hours.
This attempt at a News Feed format is trying to hard to look like Facebook and Twitter, and you automatically assume that people are going to go back through older posts to see what they've missed. VIRTUALLY NO-ONE DOES THIS. Not on Facebook, not on Tumblr, not on here.

Once again YouTube, you've shown a complete misunderstanding of your user base and thrown something at them that they DON'T WANT. PLEASE, stop trying to be a social network and stick to what you're good at.

paul said...

This isn't very good at all, it looks like a HUGE mess, its not very organised, and its not very ergonomic, quite frankly its rubbish, and we don't want it.

kevtp said...

A step in the wrong direction.
1) The previous version had a neat box for newly uploaded videos from subscriptions - now that space is taken by to show one video. This was such an unnecessary change.
2) I cannot see the comments, new messages, etc. that used to help me interact with other youtubers.
3) There are only 2 options - to put it simply, there is less choice. It should go without saying that this is not an improvement.

In at nutshell, the new layout has no advantages but many, many... disadvantages.

scottishduck said...

Terrible. That's all I can say about this.

Vince said...

im no fan, i tried the beta tester home page for about 15 seconds before i decided i still want to be ab le to see my recommended videos.

Out with the new, in with the old!

Who are the idiots who thought this was a good idea? No one likes this stupid layout, go back to the old one, or better yet, go to the older one which everyone loved, stop changing things. Youtubers don't like this amount of change as you should clearly be able to tell from the mass amount of negative comments and videos every time you do stuff like this, this website is meant to be for the users, so listen to our ideas and stop assuming.

Yep what Gamer says. It's just not as simple you say and the layout is horrid. Sack the designer or at least give us an option to put it back to the old style please.

archenemy_metalhead said...

I already know of people who have left YouTube because this....there are no words for the new homepage and much it sucks.


If it wasn't for the fact I enjoy creating informative and educational videos...I'd leave too because there's something missing about this site that used to be amazing.

The "You" in YouTube no longer applies...might as well call this site simply "Tube".

YouTube never ceases to amaze me - yet another design flaw which has been FORCED on us without giving us an 'opt out' option.

You really are a bunch of idiots. The only reason you have done this is to throw more advertising down our throats.

GOODBYE YOUTUBE

I've changed my bookmarks to my subscriptions page.
Not a fan of the new homepage.

estellehaviland said...

The new homepage is cumbersome and cluttered.

And my inbox/comments etc are NOT on the front page, as you intimate.

And on my mobile, that useless, grey menu at the bottom is now a thick, dark band across the whole screen. Great: now I can't use YouTube on my mobile.

Admit it, you are just limbering up to squeezing in more advertisements.

This has nothing whatsoever to making things better for the user, it is simply about money.

YouTube sells out.

dont like it please change it back or at least give us a choice so how do you change it back can anyone help or have they forced it on us its terrible please youtube can you change it back please or give us a choice if you dont like it then we can change it back please

meghnadesai9 said...

This new page is a total mess!! Everything is really confusing and looks absolutely hideous. It actually hurts my eyes to look at the screen :/

Also I HATE the subscriptions layout. Previously it was really easy to view the new videos that had come out. Now the page goes on forever. Also if you are subscribed to one channel that uploads more than 4 videos a day, the earliest one uploaded would be knocked off the screen.

This new layout is most certainly not 'a step in the right direction'. You guys fucked up youtube big time. Please change it back.

Callum said...

where the fuck is my inbox? how will I know if someone's replied to me?

robert said...

THIS IS PATHETIC...CHANGE IT BACK...OR ALLOW USERS TO DETERMINE HOW OUR HOMEPAGE LOOKS...AND ALLOW USERS TO DETERMINE WHAT IS ON OUR HOMEPAGE...NOT YOU!

Felix Materski said...

I agree with the sensible commenters - hugely messy and inefficient. I have had to unsubscribe to 5 channels to reduce the clutter and do a lot of searching to find what I want. It also reduces your feel-good factor at exploring the recommendations. You get a sense that once you subscribe to someone they can bully you and get in your face.

trevor321 said...

The display of the new page is completely unorganised, and not user freindly at all. There is no option to return to the old layout, and there is no option to change your homepage to suit yourself. I will not get used to this. I use youtube a lot, and what the homepage has become is a hot mess. If you insist on changing your website so often, at least give us the option of how our own homepage is going to look and feel, rather than shoving that trainwreck at us and telling us to deal with it.

joshuaspoelstra said...

with me being a youtuber without the capabilities of machinima to upload 30 videos a day this puts small channels out the window as the popular channels are at the top meaning people like me get no exposure to subs and are fed unoriginal montonous stuff from the likes of machinma, TERRIBLE ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE.

I cant see my inbox

Andrew said...

OMG I went through all the trouble to create a new account with a new name to replace my old one with a naff name and subscribe to everyone again then you screw up my experience.

I have tons of info on what the people i'm following favourited, which I couldn't care less. I loved that all the new videos uploaded by the people I subscribed to were all in 1 group together nice and clearly so I could see the new videos, whereas as now the new videos from half the people I subscribe to I cannot see for crap I don't want to see.

Please give the option of the old layout or change it back, otherwise I may end up checking out other video sites people keep advising me of.

Could this be the time when people look at other video sites like members of Myspace did when they joined Facebook? Don't say you weren't warned YouTube.

Ross Langley said...

It really is awful youtube. I hate how you let us look at it before releasing it, ask for our opinions (which are negative) and change it anyway.
Let me guess, you aren't going to listen to these messages either?
Typical corporate arses.

derby-clan said...

"the homepage in its current form doesn’t mean much to most of you, and could be more personally relevant."? You Liars! Everybody was fine was the layout as it was, and now you've gone and made it onto a cluttered mess. As they say, Don't fix what isn't broken.

Ryan said...

By trying to fix a problem that never existed, you have made a MASSIVE PROBLEM! CHANGE IT BACK NOW YOUTUBE!

Conorhstone said...

There was no problem with the old homepage. The new one is:
1.Confusing
2.Unorganized
3.Idiotic...

Airsoft said...

The old homepage was the best one so far.... The current one is just too complicated, the old one, sorry better one, was easy to use, simple and it just worked well.


Can it back to the old one if you would.

Rorser said...

cool lets change the homepage to an utter cluster f to piss everyone off.

ed_hollowood said...

How do I get it back to the good one because this one sucks?

Mister Loo-Kass said...

No-one likes it, Youtube.
As proven above.
Fix it please?

leo.rogers said...

dislike it.
I dont want to scroll forever to find videos, so a grid was a more efficient way of laying them out than a list.
also, id like to be able to see bulletin posts, things people liked, and new subscription videos at the same time, but ONLY if they are separated into contained blocks. since new videos are priority, i choose "subscription uploads" over "all activity".
Also, on the old one, the title of the subscriptions module was a link that took you to a page where you could see loads of videos going far back, and you could choose one user and see all their recent videos. can you get to this page now? that was one of the most useful features in my opinion.

Waluigimaster64 said...

This is clearly worse than your new channels and other shitty updates you forced us into. Look above 'you'tube, can you see any good comment on this new....thing?

But really youtube, this new layout is a cluttered up mess. Before I could quickly check my inbox and some of the videos of my recent subscriptions, but how can I do that now exactly?

Also....

"As always, we’ll be listening and taking your feedback very seriously."

Does this mean you will actually give us a choice this time?

David said...

A cluttered, useless, unbalanced, ugly mess.

Scrolling up and down for pages, useful features gone or hobbled, useless features forced upon us.

It is a joke. An ugly unpleasant joke.

This is supposed to be the easy stuff, and if you guys can't get that right, what good are you?

Do you even test this crap? With real people. Do your designers even use YouTube? It seems real unlikely, or this would never have the left the idiotic meeting it was proposed at.

Self-serving change for change sake, poorly thought out and even more poorly implemented.

The point of progress is supposed to be better than what went before, not worse.

You guys desperately need some proper competition, subsidized by Google Ads has made you soft and lazy and stupid. If this garbage is really the best you can do, you are in big trouble.

Andy said...

Dear god youtube, change it back

Gamer said...

you see youtube....nobody likes this...dont think that you can get out of this one...im gonna get the loads of people from the community to complain about it...even some famous youtubers dont like the new page....it is even worse then the new channel layout that was new long time ago...

Jordan Elliott said...

ID RATHER HAVE GOATSE AS THE NEW YOUTUBE HOMEPAGE RATHER THAN THIS F|_|CKING SHIT!

CHANGE IT BACK YOU FAGGOTS!

richard said...

COPY AND PASTE IF YOU HATE THE NEW YOUTUBE LAYOUT!**
┌∩┐(◕_◕)┌∩┐ Fuck the new layout!

Nadim said...

IT IS AWFUL! I tried it in the 'beta' stage and I didn't like it then and gave feedback in which I am sure people would have agreed with but it isn't there. YouTube sucks at making new homepages! Give me the option to change it back!

Niall said...

I don't want to sound like another troll or spammer, but it was much handier to be able to see all the most recent videos in one box without having to scroll down to see them. Please add an option to list videos by date rather than by subscription.

Bob said...

please change it back! I absolutely hate it. Even if you give us the OPTION of being able to switch would be good enough. Just please please dont keep this layout. The old layout DOESNT need changing so I am asking you personally to change it or give the option to CHANGE BACK!

Thanks.

STOP RUINING YOUTUBE YOU TOOK AWAY THE RATING SYSTEM THAT RUINED EVERYTHING NOW YOUTUBE FUCKING MAKES THIS NEW BULLSHITY HOME PAGE GO BACK TO THE OLD HOMEPAGE AND THEN OUT BACK THE OLD RATING SYSTEM. LISTEN TO THE FUCKING COMMUNITY YOUTUBE DEVELOPERS!

AfroMonkey said...

I just wonder who are the "most of you" you were refering to in your blog post? Cause it sure seems they weren't the majority. Personally I do think you have went too far this time. If nothing I'd like the option change it back. It's a plethora of bad designs choices and I'm sorry but under what impression did you get that I'm interested in everyone I've ever interacted with?
Please change it back. Listen this time.

Like many other people, I think the new homepage is an utter mess.

It's too confusing. I preferred the old page.

Also, the inbox on the front page is missing. :(

mayhem said...

I cant find anything, I want old youtube, this one is shit

Ticarus said...

The new homepage is horrible, there was nothing wrong with the old page.

once again, our choice has been removed by a company who thinks they know what is right for their users, and cant be further from reality.

Dont

Fix

Unbroken

Stuff

ps: fire the guy who designed it, it's horrendous.

you-tube-user said...

Like many other people I think the old Homepage was a lot better. This one doesn't look as good, and it's a lot more confusing to use.
Also, the inbox on the front page is missing, making it a lot harder to keep track of comments, video responeses, inbox's etc.
I much prefered the old one, as do many of my friends.
Please change it back.

Meechem said...

Dear YouTube - I thoroughly dislike pretty much all of the changes!! Extremely disappointed.

Why have you removed my inbox? I liked being able to see if I had new messages or comments on the home page, now I have to specifically search for that information. I don't mind if you add features, but don't remove things, especially something as important as my inbox!!

As for the rest, the page looks messy (far too much information, and all in separate sections) Completely unnecessary. I'm only subscribed to 11 people, but a separate section for each of their uploads, their favourites, video they have liked, etc... means there are so many sections, I had to scroll down and down and down, passed so much stuff, just to see loads of information that clutters the screen and really doesn't interest me.

Other gripes : I don't need a link to my own channel, (the link under my account settings was enough) or have a section telling me what video I have uploaded, I know what videos I have uploaded - I uploaded them!!

I have never ever left a comment/feedback to something like this, but these horrible changes have forced me to share my opinions.

THOROUGHLY DISLIKE AND DISAPPOINTED WITH ALL THE CHANGES TO THE NEW HOMEPAGE

jenga said...

Ah ha ha ha ha, well as mentioned above, THE NEW HOMEPAGE SUCKS, anyone keep it after the test? I'm not entirely sure anyone did, this isn't better it means i have to scrol all over the show to see what I want, also why is there no thumbs on this blog? then you would get feedback, like the feedback from the new homepage, GRRR.

Dollar Bill UK said...

It's absolutley awful. I can't find anything any more. Please change it back.

Shoku said...

CHANGE IT BACK YOUTUBE!

Lee said...

CHANGE IT BACK DAMNIT. This new layout is horribly confusing and everything is jumbled around. At least give us an option between the layouts.

ben said...

Please group things together, subscriptions should always appear first
come on get your act together it looks awful

Adrian said...

where is the option to revert it back?
There is none!
"While not everyone loved it" here you clearly admit that some of the demographic despise it yet clearly and blithy ignore any voices of concern in the dictator-esque manner youtube is slowly becoming.
I disliked the 'featured video's' as it was.

Lithium Dictator said...

Youtube, Give us the option to switch between the old and new layouts, that is all you need to do to make this all better it cant be hard because we used to have the choice but taking it away was a big mistake, every comment here is about how the new layout sucks but you wouldn't be getting all these comments if you didn't take away the option to switch between them, bring back the option and all will be well, if you do not then you will have given your user base more reason than we ever needed to believe that you don't care about us. If you want to show that you care about us and what we like just bring back the option it is a simple as that youtube.

Truedantalion said...

Personally, I can live with this latest change better than with other humdingers that you made over the last year. Kind of a nice surprise ...

Don't get me wrong, though - I'm not saying that the remodeling would have been necessary in the first place, but well ... something being *necessary* has never been a reason for you to change stuff.

Still, I can say for myself that the damage score of this earthquake here is a minor one on my personal Richter Scale. I appreciate the "One uploader / several videos per day in a row" idea, for example. And I will try to wrap my head around the layout changes etc.

Still, I have two remarks to make.

1.)
"After countless user studies and community surveys ..."

Hm. I want you to know that I am online on YouTube every single day, and not only for 15 minutes, but for quite a few hours at least. And I have been on YouTube for three and a half years now. So ... why has not a single one of those innumerable surveys ever ever reached my inbox? How about a survey that really reaches *every* user, and offers a questionnaire that offers options to simply click on, which would make the evaluation for you a mere database query trick? That would be a survey that I could take for serious, because I'd know it really *happened*!

2.)
"As always, we’ll be listening and taking your feedback very seriously."

No, you won't. As always, you will ignore the feedback comments here, and not reply to anyone. And what is being said here will have no effect.

But ... d*uh. I wrote my comment, and will send it. It's kinda like sending out radio waves into the universe. Someone might catch them, and listen. But even if they do, they don't reply. For someone living being in the Andromeda galaxy, the enormous distance and the time factor is the most important reason for that. So ... what is your excuse, YouTube? We are right here :-)!

Well, see ya .. or not,

~Michael

Dominic 'King of the Hill' Price said...

I've made an account especially so that I can complain about the catastrophe that is the new homepage. Every element has been exacerbated in ways that I would only have thought possible of a Conservative government running the UK. I am proved wrong, and become ever more skeptical as to who I can trust.

Chris said...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Saminatorger said...

"Please send us your feedback in a video, in the forums, on this blog or on Twitter. As always, we’ll be listening and taking your feedback very seriously. Posted by the YouTube team." I highly doubt that...You said that with the new video pages, but totally ignored the feedback, so we're stuff with NO 5 star ratings. And now this? for once, just actually listen to the public...

Stephen said...

Please stop messing about with the layout it is not necessary, it was perfect before.The new layout is dreadful.Come to your senses and revert back to the original.

toby.bates said...

I HATE THIS NEW LAYOUT GET RID OF IT

stevo_raynsford said...

YouTube please listen to the people, dont be hesitant in changing it back to how it was. It's a horrible layout

Julian said...

Absolute rubbish you have totally ruined the site, whoever designed it needs the sack as a ten year old could do better.

shanc_13 said...

I'm sorry, but I had this a while back, and I absolutely despised it, I want the old one back, as do most other people judging from these responses, there was nothing wrong with the old page, I disagree with this being a 'step in the right direction' and could you not at least, as other sites have done when introducing a new layout, provide us with the old layout as an alternative? Sorry to complain, but having already suffered the new layout during what I assume was a trial period I can only say bad things about it.

Liam said...

Come on youtube at least give us a choice if we want the new homepage. Please change it back every comment on here says its a rubbish, unorganised mess.

FC360 said...

new homepage is the worst homepage I have seen, it is so unorganized and everything looks a mess, where are my new comments, inbox messages etc alert/link? There really needs to be a option to use the old homepage instead of the new homepage because youtube is getting so bad that I'm thinking of switching to a different video hosting site.

theresa marie said...

I DONT LIKE IT I DONT LIKE IT I DONT LIKE IT LIKE IT I DOOOOOONNNNNTTTTT LIIIIIKKKKKKEEEEE ITTTTTTTTT CHANGE IT BACK YOUTUBE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GRRRRRR I HAAAAATE IT MAN !!!! FUCKING HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT !!!!!!! GOD WHO CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luke said...

Please give us back the old home page!
At least let us choose between the two, because i can`t find anything in the new one.
Sorry to say, but it is a disaster!

tree56 said...

A complete and utter complicated mess.

Must try harder.

afcstu said...

Really bad, i dont know where to start! the whole thing seems to be going in the complete opposite direction! please listen to us and give us the old home page back! its soo much better and easier to manage the subs rather than having a huge confusing column that is completely unessisary! pluss the inbox thing on the homepage has gone which really dissapointed me! google your fairly good with listening to your customers and your services are some of the best Youtube, Andriod and search, but this one you really should listen to our views and change it back to normal, or at least give us the choise of the two homepages! thankyou!

Andy said...

The new homepage is shocking quite frankly, a poorly thought out mess.

What exactly did you think was so bad about the previous homepage which I thought was pretty decent?

will said...

IT's SUCKS
IT's CRAP
IT's BS
IT's Horrendous
IT's Riduclous
CHANGE IT BACK.
WHO THE FLIP DESIGNED IT? A flipping monkey?

Hectobar said...

I wish to be as formal as possible with this complaint. but I am already finding it rather difficult.
Firstly, I agree with everything the other several hundred-odd complaints say, and I must agree that the new homepage absolutely sucks and I must request that you change it back immediately!

Kelsey said...

It's really confusing, I'm sorry but can we at least have the option to change it back to how it originally was?

Daisy said...

Thumbs down! I don't like the new layout at all. First of all it's confusingly set out; second, I am subscribed to a fairly large amount of people and I simply do not want to see every video that they like appearing on my homepage; third, there were no problems with the old homepage.

Please, if you insist on using this, at least give us the choice between the old and the new and then see which is the most popular.

Sy The Zombie Loser Kid said...

It's terrible. Absolute mess. No one wanted this, there was nothing wrong with the old homepage. Change it back!

speedo142 said...

i want my old youtube back.. dont like this at all its terrible. terrible layout and loads of stuff missing.loved the old youtube layout much easier to understand and make your way around. please please take it back. x x x

joshuacartwright said...

Why change this the previous homepage? It worked perfectly as it was, all you have made me do is click 10 more times to actually get to see all my subscriptions so i can decide which videos I want to watch.
Stop abusing youtube you're giving google a bad name, as I for one am getting sick of all the useless junk you're doing to an amazing tool of free speech.
Did some retard who never uses it design this?

Fire the person who thought this was a good idea!

I dont normally agree with spammers but I will re-iterate.
CHANGE IT BACK NOW!

clarkmusic said...

same bring back the old layout this is so terrible please youtube dont do a facebook and make you tube shit by changing thing that simply dont need to change in saying that take the soding advs off or give us a botton to skip the advs as soon as the video is up and ready to play thats all none of this new stuff its looks and its untidy to look at

Alex said...

Ok so I've read every comment here to look for just one positive one. There are none. That's 100% of people who commented on this blog that don't like the new homepage.
Who are the millions who preferred it because conveniently they have decided not to comment?
Pretty much everything you said in that blog post was a lie. Rather than dwelling on this I will address the points you think are positive about the new homepage.

1)Increased focus on videos that matter to you (subscriptions, friend's sharing, recommendations)
I disagree, the video’s that mattered to me are the new videos from my subs and now they are cluttered in between favourite videos and liked videos that I don’t want to see.

2)You can easily filter your homepage to show only the latest uploads from your subscriptions
When I click on subs only I have a cluttered list which is impossible to navigate. I have already realised I’ve missed a video from one of my subs yesterday, how many more can’t I find?
Why would I want to change from a grid where I could see all the new video’s at a glance to a list that I have to scroll up and down to see that also has video’s I have seen before on the page as well.

3)Don't miss anything; if a channel uploads four videos in a day, you’ll see all four - instead of just the latest video
As I have already stated I have missed a video which I found my using the subscription box in the top right next to my account settings. It doesn’t help to have them all on the page if they are camouflaged by a million other things.

4)Quick access to the inbox when you have new messages or comments
Really? I can’t see my inbox at all. Literally is not on the page any more.

5)Knows what you have seen (videos you've watched are grayed out)
Instead of clearing them from the page, exasperating the clustered look problem.

6)Remove any video (hover and click the "x" button)
A feature I believe already existed.

Love4MusicUK said...

I'm with the majority here. I'm not so keen on the new Homepage. When it was Beta I tried it a few times but ended up staying with the old one as I found it more simpler. I don't like how you have to keep clicking "Load more videos" I think it would of benefitted from a Grid layout like the old one instead of this long line to scroll down

Little said...

Um, why have you removed the inbox from the right of the homepage?

That is such a stupid thing to do...so now I have to click through loads of dropdown boxes just to see the inbox. No thanks. Your new site design is terrible and now you're taking away the inbox? Do you even understand what 'simple' means? You hide it well.

Rubber said...

Just to add my two penny's worth IT IS SHIT! Why can I not choose what I want on my homepage? Is that just too difficult? Other sites manage it ok. I know what I've uploaded recently, don't need reminding, I also don't want what my subscriptions have posted taking up most of the page, especially ones several weeks old! Recommended videos I like, but the old default of 9 which changed when you refreshed the page was nice, now I have to click to open 9, and they don't change if I refresh!
CHANGE IT BACK ASAP!!

DBMONK said...

THIS IS THE WORST CHANGE TO ANY WEBSITE, EVVVVAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!
Change this pile of crap back, of get ready to loose a lot of users

rozz295 said...

I clicked on my homepage there and i thought it was changed back, it looked like it, i actually got excited. Then i realized it wasn't, i'm feeling suicidal now...

John said...

I really don't like the new layout it's too messy and i really liked the recommended videos, sure 80% of the time it was rubbish that i would never watch but I don't come on youtube to watch set things all the time that one thing kept me on youtube for hours sometimes just looking at random things!!

thank youtube yet again you have messed with something that did not need messing with oh btw BRING BACK * RATINGS or at least make it more clear cut as to how liked or disliked a video is!

Ciaran said...

Its rubbish just like the new facebook layout i feel im going to miss out on alot of videos from people i subscribed too and my subscribers

WE WANT THE OLD ONE BACK

Felix Materski said...

Sorry, this is not working. In order to clear my page of clutter/spam I have had to block some accounts. It's the only way to keep sanity on this awful confusion. You are forcing us to unfriend and unsubscribe. Surely that is not what you intended!

SH0CK3I2 said...

This is the same story as my facebook account. They pretend you have a "choice" to change it whenever you like, although really its just delaying the inevitable for when they shove it down your throat whether you like it or not. I never signed up for youtube or facebooks new profiles, therefor I do not want them.... END OF

I also agree with previous comments asking where the hell were those "countless surveys" you conducted?? Or where they only for the countless Google staff??

blazed said...

Awful. I tried this out when you ran that beta and it sucked, so I switched back. Where did you get the idea that your users wanted this layout as opposed the old, better one?

Also there are STILL subscriptions showing that I unsubscribed from ages ago. Pathetic.

To add to all this idiocy you're still unable to provide enough bandwidth for me to stream a video in 360p in some cases, despite me having a 10mbit connection. There's plenty of bandwidth available to the world's largest video streaming website, surely? Sort it out. Youtube is one site I visit every day and you're slowly ruining it. Thank f**k i'm clever enough to block the adverts before videos..

Killerma said...

Why must you continually alter things and make them worse? I'm sorry but this new homepage is awful.. I preferred the old view, it was much easer to work with, If this is meant to be an improvement.. Then I'm afraid you've failed.

Pandamonium said...

I read at least 50 messages here and not 1 of them were positive.

What does this tell you?

It is not good.

building and dome said...

I don't usually bother writing on forum's, especially on commercial sites because I expect my opinion to be overlooked. But this is different as I feel strongly about it.

I don't use youtube as a social networking site and therefore knowledge of 'friends' activity is irrelevant. I'm not interested in what my 'friends' are watching, which is the main focus of the new homepage.

I use youtube as an entertainment alternative to television. I always liked the big 'recommended for you' section which I could glance over and refresh the homepage if I wanted a different selection. Now I can't do that without scrolling through your social network of friend activity. I can't even find the 'recommended for you' link that allows me to choose videos by genre.

It is fair to say I don't know my youtube 'friends'. I'm sure we all have very different interests which is why I have no interest in their activity.

With the new layout I don't feel I have the freedom to watch videos without making a specific search.

Also, I liked my Inbox being on the homepage. Now it is similar to the facebook notification style.

If I was interested in my friend's video activity then I would choose to look at video's they have embedded on the Facebook news feed..........not Youtube's.

The old layout was considerably more customisable which is why I loved it.

OrphanPixels said...

Rollback or an self sorting option please. Remember, we use Youtube in a variety of ways. (none of mine having anything to do with cats or Charlie biting fingers)



I want the minimum of info from my subs. (Stacked thumbs with a digit?) and to be able to access the inbox right away.

zydrate.anatomy said...

Ugh, this new layout is hideous. I really don't need 98% of my page devoted to what my friends and subscriptions have favourited. If I CARED, I would LOOK on their favourites list. I liked the big recommended section. Actually, I think that's the only section I ever bothered with on the homepage. This new layout is horrible and inconvenient, and I can't even adjust it to make it tolerable.
I popped onto the site today and spent about twenty minutes looking for the "change it back" button. I figured you'd at least have the courtesy to give me that much, but no. I'm stuck with this messy hodgepodge of information I don't want. Not cool, Youtube. Not. Cool.

fatso said...

will you just stop changing youtube every 3 months? i mean really, just leave it alone...
the new layout sucks anus and its really confusing. there is no logic behind it. the load more videos button is pointless. im missing several subscriptions. this SUCKS

fatso said...

what should be said:
Although ALL of you might miss TONS OF features, we think this latest version is a step in the WRONG direction. It’s CONFUSING, more RIDICULOUS, and it makes it MORE DIFFICULT to follow and watch the videos that are meaningful to you. So today we're rolling out this new homepage for all logged in users worldwide. We're dedicated to making YouTube the WORST place for you to discover and share AVERAGE videos. Please send us your feedback in a video, in the forums, on this blog or on Twitter. As always, we’ll NOT be listening and NOT taking your feedback very seriously. Posted by the YouTube TWATS.

this page is consistenly machine gunned with negative comments and hate. if you dont change it back, we will know you dont listen and so will you.

letsmakeup21 said...

WHY.DO.YOU.IDIOTS.TRY.TO.FIX.THINGS.THAT.ARENT.BROKEN!????

Wanna update it? go ahead, but give us the option to keep it as it was you guys suck so hard its unreal.

Just remember, there are plenty of other sites like this and one day you're gonna add one too many adds and one too many alterations and we will all LEAVE.

So go ahead, keep ruining it, ignore me - but you remember bebo and myspace and piczo?? where are they now!?? FACEBOOK - and we can leave you JUST as easily as we left all the rest. We're not stupid :)

SO, IN SHORT YOU DEFF IDIOTS:

Raven said...

What i want and what most want is one section with a list of latest videos my subscribed channels have posted. Watch a video in list and it gets removed from list.
And a list of videos that is recommended to me based on what else i watch.
In otherwords, exactly as the old homepage was.
Sure it could use a facelift, but it offered exactly what we wanted.

The new one is utterly crap. And looking through these comments i get the feeling others feel the same way. Atleast i couldnt find a single positive comment.

So please change back to old one. Or atleast give the option to change back.

CuteFoxyRoxy said...

I hate this new home page i would say 10 out of 1000 like this new home page.
You tube use to be my favourit website but know it like last.
So change it back please.

Vana1970 said...

I really do not like the new look, it is far too cluttered. I don't know where one comment starts and ends. How can I see if I have any messages and comments at glance ?

It is far too messy and I for one would like the old version.

paul said...

Change it back already, I find it worse every day, stuff like it showing my own uploads, why?
its super messy, and quite frankly I have seen better web designs by 8 year olds, so please, change it back and maybe hire someone who knows something about web design next time.

trevor321 said...

I just discovered 3 days worth of subscription updates that i didnt see underneath all that crap. And i'm getting subsrcription updates, from people who im NOT SUBSCRIBED TO? how is that helpful in. any. way.

Aussie In London said...

I HATE IT! Bring back the old style ASAP please.

Kerry said...

It's AWFUL.
I hate it.

I haven't even used YT since the change as much because your homepage sucks.

trevor.pugh_89 said...

This is pathetic. You change a system that worked really well and was very user freindly, into something the comlete opposate, for no reason at all other than you think its what we need! Truly bad practice, bring back the old page, or at least give us the abillity to edit out own homepages so that we dont have to be forcefed all the crap that you're feeding us

trevor.pugh_89 said...

Also, would somebody care to tell me where the hell my inbox is?

paul said...

let me give you a hint youtube, even though you can access your inbox from the main screen, if people have to ask where it is because they cant find it, then its not a very good layout is it?

and what about all the crap that we don't care about, I mean "catch up on latest TV" you display shows I haven't even heard of, let alone what I am willing to watch, and then there is the "trending" all of witch is completely the opposite to my trend, for example, I am a rocker, I listen to AC/DC, Judas priest etc. and the trending is telling me about Justin bieber. and do you really think im going to be interested? really? NO.

so. to summarise
1)get rid of the new page
2)get rid of the adverts that don't interest people(so personalise them maybe)
3)get rid of the standardising trends and do some personalising ones and let the user turn all that stuff off if they want.
4)get a proper beta when you have a design of something like a new homepage going and actually listen to what people are saying before even considering releasing it globally.
5)just because youtube is big doesn't means it doesn't have any more lessons to learn.

Chaseorthoss said...

"You can easily filter your homepage to show only the latest uploads from your subscriptions".

Lies.

Mister Loo-Kass said...

There is not one piece of positive feedback on this page.

I would REALLY like to hear what the youtube staff have to say for themselves, so if you really do care about the feedback given, as you have written above, then SHOW IT.

Todd said...

Hate it ! Hate it ! Hate it !

Sue said...

Gah! I hate it.
One of the best things I liked about the old profile was that you could see friend requests, comments, etc, on the front page. Now, I have to go to my inbox to find anything. And my timeline thing, is just full of spam and like other users, I am having issues finding updates subs.

If the sub was updated recently enough to feature on the homepage, it is good, in that it shows all the recent uploads and if you have watched them the video is dimmed. Whilst it is nice dimming videos already watched, it doesn't excuse the fact that the inbox on the homepage was my favourite feature, and I miss it.

BTW, I had to struggle to find a good thing, and whilst it's nice it does not make up for the bastardisation of the homepage.

RacheyVonGrimm© said...

I prefer the old version.

This new version is much more messy, and it doesn't have the side bar on the right that shows my inbox, messages and etc.

Also, all I want to see on my homepage is my Subscriptions uploads not other recommended videos.

Rob said...

seriously youtube, look at the amount of negative comments that have been generated since you uploaded the new homepage. Doesn't it tell you you should change it back?

or are you all going to sit there in starbucks thinking, "Meh, this'll all blow over"

>:(

RacheyVonGrimm© said...

Just to expand on my last comment

(Each point relates to the bullet points in their blog post)

1) All I want to see is the uploaded videos from the people I've subscribed to. THAT IS ALL.

2) Even if I do filter it to see only subscriptions, I get all this other stuff about "Most Popular" videos. If I wanted to look at the most popular videos, then I would go to the separate page for that.

3) If a channel uploaded more than one video it came up separately anyway, not just the latest video you fools!

4) I can not find the Inbox button anywhere except for when I click on my username in the top right hand corner which was there anyway.

5) If I've watched one of my subscription's videos, then it should delete anyway like it used to, because if I've already watched it, I don't need to re-watch it. And if I want to, then I will search for it myself.

6) That occurred anyway.

Change it back!

vessey said...

I didn't know youtube was a dictatorship. where is our choice to change back to the good old youtube? I mean the youtube before the grey bar came and fucked everything up.

Anime_Otaku said...

Yeah, the new home page is horrific. Seriously it just needs to be changed back.

Pkmn2 said...

-insert big rant about the new shitty YouTube Homepage here-

trevor321 said...

seriously! i'm expecting this page to be changed, youtube. I dont beleive you havnt already, its a f***ing shambles

VertMB said...

It truly is disgusting, before it was easy to see my subscriptions now they're all over the place with irrelevant crap everywhere, it's visually very annoying, please change it back.

I'd just like to chime in with countless others and agree the new changes are terrible.

Julian said...

I agree it's bad.

1. On the old page I had the option to move subscriptions, updates and recommendations around on the page. Like most people I expect, I put subscriptions at the top, and the others below, because SUBSCRIPTIONS are more important to me than the other updates or recommendations - that's why I subscribed to them! So don't mix them up. Why take away the option to keep them all on the page but grouped separately?

2. The old page easily showed up to 15 new videos from my subscriptions at once. Now I have to scroll down and click 'show more'. Why does each subscriber need a whole line to itself? Waste of space on the page, and a waste of scrolling and clicking.

3. You say that I now don't miss a video if someone uploads more than one the same day. Well why did I miss them before? That's just a bug that you should have fixed anyway. It didn't need a change of page design.

I've now changed my bookmark to take me directly to my subscriptions page. It's a lot easier to look at it.

Sort it out YouTube!

Corey said...

I only used to use the homepage for one thing, viewing the videos of people I have subscribed to. Previously, this was displayed in a box at the top of the page that wasn't near enough perfect for the job. Now, I see a massive list which I'm having to continuously scroll up and down, it's just pointless and annoying.

After trying the beta a while back, I immediately switched back to the old homepage. The only reason I can possibly think of for YouTube forcing this new layout upon us is to create more advertising space, proving that they are indeed corporate arses.

I'd also like to comment on 'As always, we’ll be listening and taking your feedback very seriously'. This quite clearly isn't the case, not all of us are that gullible. I remember back around April Fool's Day of last year when the first of these YouTube-ruining updates appeared. After reading many comments, no-one approved of it and a lot of people thought it was an April Fool's Joke (which sadly turned out to not be the case). The vast majority of comments on updates since then have been negative.

So, to sum it up in one sentence;

YouTube, you having a laugh?

Corey said...

*Was near enough perfect, not wasn't.

Corey said...

Just found something out for people missing the old-style subscription box. Click the either the comments/messages button below your name at the top of the homepage and then click subscriptions.

Evilgidgit said...

I'd say look at all the comments above and see whether or not you are trying to do the best for the community or not.

ovidijus said...

put the old layout back and the problem is solved

teddiesgonagetu121 said...

I like the new homepage, I just wish that you could customise it more, like the background, colours and themes etc. It would make the homepage more personal to users, and make it more friendly.

Jack Singer said...

ratio of opinions of the new YouTube homepage:

Dislike: 162 Like: 0

YouTube it really sucks... you mights wan't to listen to your users when you read these opinions and think again.

joshuacartwright said...

Just found another lame addition to the home page.
Why do I have my own recently favourited videos on it. I've watched them ALREADY! If i want to show them to other people i'll look at my favourites! Its a waste of space just like the majority of the other features!

Change It Back. It is retarded

charlotte said...

the new layput os confusing, jumbled and a mess, i cant see some of the stuff i used to like eg my recommended videos, which was good and know i dont know what's on the homepage. please tuen it back to the old one or at least let people have the option of having the new one or not. please change ot back much appreciated x

Chicken McFail said...

The old layout (and I mean the OLD layout, before you google guys bought youtube) was so user friendly.
It contained everything I was interested in - A small 4x2 or 5x2 (can't really remember) rectangle with my subscriptions, right under it I could see my recommended videos, on the right side I could find all my inbox numbers and the graphics of the layout were much better.

Why did you have to gradually "fix" what was unbroken? Now I have a clusterfuck of videos in a fuckhuge vertical column. The subscriptions are mixed with shit that OTHER people liked. I don't care what they like! And I won't switch to the subscription-only option because I want my recommended videos! I want the old style! And instead of the fucking featured and "trending" videos I want my inbox info!

Why did you have to do this, Google?
Why are you doing this to all of us?

Ian said...

Utterly horrible. Why is the link to a page full of recommended videos now unavailable? I don't really care about getting a bunch of my "liked" videos back in front of me, I want new material!

Going to look for somewhere else to browse video content, this has just become far too unusable.

Siggy75 said...

Will YouTube listen? Have you ever listened since the partnership programme started. It's all about trying to get views for ads not videos. Those of us who have been making videos for years are totally disenfranchised with the site.

We stick around because we helped build this site and feel a sense of community, and YT now this. Give us back our site. Bring back the classic YT look with subscriptions at the top and about 10 featured videos in a list. It virtually impossible to find new YouTubers these days as partners are thrust down our throats. When I was featured a few years ago it was great as I was introduced to so many new people. This can't happen now.

johnhoggan said...

please change it back i was happy with my page as i set it up now im spammed by "uploaded by" vids and no inbox

Tom said...

I just clicked the report a bug button at the bottom of the homepage. Because it must be a bug in the coding for the new homepage to be so crap. How can they think this makes my "PERSONAL" YouTube experience any better? I recommend everyone do the same.

Everytime i log in to youtube hoping they changed it back or at least a reply from them recognizing that we do not like it. But nothing!!

Well hopefully they will lisen and change it back.

stephen.bissaker said...

Wow what a mess, you should have kept the layout as it was and also kept the star rating system. God! i could go on for hours ranting about how **** youtube has become over the past few years.

Shaun said...

Who in their right mind would give positive feedback? New youtube sucks and judging by the other comments i don't think anyone has yet to say anything good about the new layout.

That blog is a load of lies.

Kelsey said...

So... Three days in and from what I can see: 171 Negative. 0 Positive.
Please, just give in and bring it back. It's only just annoyed everyone.
And next time you update can you leave an option of keeping the old?
Or at least forewarn us?

Sladey93 said...

This is sooooo horrible compared to the old Youtube, it makes finding videos from your subscriptions sooo confusing and i hate it, please listen to everyone elses comments and mine and please change it back !!!!!

Chicken McFail said...

Look, I made a screenshot and modified it just to show you how unbelievably shit the new homepage is.

GREEN: What I want
RED: What I do not want

Also a handy Inbox instead of the crap on the right side would be useful. Basically give us the homepage we had before you google guys bought youtube.

eidolicon said...

I hate the new homepage. I see nothing but negative reaction to it! Please change it back. I liked being able to see more 'recommended' videos. This new home page is AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. Obviously users don't like it. WHAT IS THE REAL REASON IT HAS BEEN CHANGED LIKE THIS!?

o said...

Very poorly organised. I miss the old subscriptions menu and the new way to recieve reccomended videos is terrible, I want more than the 12 or so you reccomend, I used to like browsing through them to find new stuff.

I do however like that we can see what the people we subscribed to like, however there should be another page for this or an option to turn it off. All in all this is not better.

Shaun said...

Quick access to the inbox when you have new messages or comments.

What inbox? Is it just me or does everybody else have to click about three links to read their mail now?

Unmitigated Sceptic said...

So now you realise what a mistake the new home page is, when are you going to revert to the old one? Be sensible about this for once. If people want networking, they can go to Facebook. Youtube is NOT Facebook, it's Youtube. Stop trying to be everything to everyone!

Matteo said...

Hey guys, I see what you were trying to do, but really it was easier to browse with all the videos together. We could already browse by subscription with the old page. Also, I rarely get to the very end of all the video's I watch and having them sit around greyed out is a pain in the nuts. Oh and having to click around for the inbox ia a bit of a pain too. Maybe we'll get used to it, I dunno...

HSTcallum said...

The new layout is absolute crap, too much scrolling is required and my inbox has been removed.
Thanks youtube, you've done it again and gave us absolutely no choice or say in the matter :/

wcjash said...

More clicking + more scrolling + more confusion/frustration = less watching. (Maybe way less watching!) I'm just lost with the new page. I can already tell I don't spend nearly the time on youtube as I did. Not as much "fun", seems more like work.

P.S. I don't know any other video viewing sites. (Never needed to before!) If you know some, especially good ones, please put them in your comments here. Thanks...

BeepTarzan said...

Dear Youtube

You are trying to make our experience better but it's not working.
The homepage change we could handle
The comments we could handle
The video layout we could handle

But this is a utter mess. I can't even watch the videos i want without getting a headache

So please, change it back to the old, more organised and SIMPLE layout

Jim said...

It's hard to believe this wasn't thrown out at the start of the design phase never mind after feedback from users. Like everyone else I have subscriptions but I like to check them when I want not having them shoved in my face as soon as I look at my homepage. It really isn't hard to gauge public feeling on this so why force it on us?

Chicken McFail said...

@wcjash
Try "Vimeo".
Lately more and more people begin to use it.

SolReka said...

184 comments thus far. 100% NEGATIVE FEEDBACK

One could almost assume YouTube bosses don't know how to read nor do they understand the concept of customer feedback.

Two words come to mind - Dickheads and Twats

@Chicken McFail - Vimeo you say. I think my days of YouTubing are over. I hate the way they force changes on users without any opt out option. The corporate slags.

Pete said...

It looks crap,far too cluttered,everything all over the place,atrocious!

Morgan said...

In agreement with everyone else, the new homepage is horrendous. It's frankly impractical - whereas before everything was organised by date - a logical way to organise things - instead it is organised by author?

Furthermore, since my account name is too long, it half-disappears in the All Activity/Subscription uploads box, just complimenting an already hideous design. As much as I love Youtube, and Google as a whole, you really cocked this one up.

Michael said...

I hope you take on the community's view of the new layout and change back the previous layout no one likes it! and also after you watch a video the video doesn't disapear from the sub box it's horrible. just a giant cluster fuck tbh

Revaigamer said...

Youtube.... ah youtube, if you keep this up, by 2013 you will be completely irrelevant and everyone will be using another video service o_0 Can't change the inevitable I guess though, lol we'll miss you :D (anybody here, don't even try to change their minds, it will make NO difference, this is just the kind of company you're dealing with..)

James said...

Way, way, way too big! Too much stuff, completely the wrong move. The previous homepage was nice uncluttered, this new one is going back to the stone age. Bring the old homepage back!

@Revaigamer
Well said bud.

Dominic said...

Change it back seriously its buzzing i cant find anything on it i cant even see what is recomended anymore or see my subscriptions properly :(

Lee said...

I think its safe to say, that NO ONE likes this new layout. Including myself.
IF youtube stayed the same and stopped trying to be new or up to date, everyone would enjoy it more. Just fix the errors that were on the old design and everyone will be happy bunnys!

Ryan said...

I Noticed That People Don't Like The New Homepage I for One Love It I Loved That If You Don't Want To Watch A Video Al You Do Is Click The X And I Love That All the Videos from Subscriptions Are Together Like For Example If You Subbed To Someone Who Uploads like 5 Video's A Day They Are Altogether There Is One Thing I Don't Like Youtube Says Easier Way To Read Comments And Inbox Messages yeah Not Really Were Is That On The Top In A Tiny Space Out Of the Way That Sucks And Needs Fixed Big Time!! But yeah Stop hating On this New Homepage I Have Had It for A Month Now It took 5 Mins to get Used To It I Love It!!

Sam said...

Absolutely terrible update to the home page. It's messy and just looks like a poor rip off of Facebook and Twitter. There was nothing wrong with the organized box of subscriptions that was previously at the top. As for the grayed out videos once they've been watched, why would i want that? If I've seen the video i don't want it on my front page anymore and if i want to watch it again I'll either search it or favourite it the first time i saw the video. I really hope you take into account everyone's opinion because at a glance you can plainly see it's a unanimous vote against this terrible update.

Lucy said...

Your design team are monkeys.
Change it back to the functional, logical design we used to have instead of the 'Twitter'/'Facebook' wannabe homepage that a 5 year old could have said was a bad idea.
Stop faffing around and pay attention to the thousands of people who are now slating your website and the incompetence of your staff.

Rob Smyth said...

Unhappy. I get fewer "recommended for you" videos now. I now find it hard to get anything interesting our of YouTube.

Why can't I configure my home page. The prior version was better.

Rob Smyth said...

I does not work ... now I hate it :-(

Remove a video, watch another video, go back to my home page and all the removed videos are back again! So what is the use of removing them?

kyle131 said...

Please change it back its awful... stop ruining Youtube!
