    Hahahahahaha!



    Priceless comment.

    Nice recursive reference in the first picture ("ShareSheet.png").

    (The Preview app itself allows sharing)

    YouTube and Facebook might be more useful for population, but I find that Vimeo and Twitter are (respectively against their competitors) much better designed and Apple-esque, and likely both candidates for future acquisitions by Apple.

    2012 should not conclude without Apple acquiring Twitter. Just sayin'



    Yes Twitter is not for sale, but that's just talk. They'll eventually sell. And if MS (Multiple sclerosis) or Google (Big brother) buy them I won't ever get over it.



    Apple just isn't good at social and this opportunity will not come again. Apple has a chance to acquire the best social network on the planet and I hope they get a deal inked. What's more, Twitter 4.0 marked the time where Twitter began to fuck with their users. There's no reason to lame the app the way they did. Twitter 3.0 was a far faster, more efficient and better app to use all round.

    Yeah I hope they buy both.

    I know this is only beta but the absence of any Google services is pretty obvious. A few years ago YouTube would have been the most prominent sharing option.



    As others have said and I have said repeatedly, Apple should update and move Galleries to iCloud.

    +1



    All these social network sites are no replacement for the likes of Galleries for those of us who prefer not to use them for client work. Plus given Apple already is storing so many pictures on the cloud, surely supporting galleries would be easy. I will have to create my own with Aperture or Lightroom and host them, not a problem but not as fast and simple.

    It might surprise you but there are other business models beside advertising.

    What still lets you do that? I have had software that did but it has all broken.

    Not for Google. Collecting as much information as possible and then leveraging that is about the only thing that they have figured out how to do well. In other words they are great at invading your privacy and making money off of it.

    Agreed.

    (well, either buy or have a strong exclusive partnership with them)



    Twitter is right on the cusp of being completely ruined with advertisements also. Right now it's just a bunch of garbage in the background that you can mostly ignore, but very soon we will have so many advertisements in the feed that it won't be worth using.



    If it was just part of the Apple suite of online services, it wouldn't need advertising at all.

    If it tries to make it alone, it's just a matter of time before something else comes along and people abandon it in droves.

    What ads? Apparently people tell me there are VIDEO ads before you get to watch the video you came to see.



    Never seen them. It's hilarious how many people refuse to use AdBlock these days. I've never seen a single ad on YouTube. No pop-ups, no on-page, no pre-video. Nothing.

    So does all this "sharing" mean that OS X will be vulnerable to the same dirty tricks that iOS app makers have been using to copy users' address books without their consent?

    For a content-based business like YouTube, the realistic options are to keep the site free and use advertising, or to charge people for the service (either to view content or to upload content). I doubt that most people would be willing to pay to use YouTube (or Google or Facebook for that matter) and so advertising is the best business model.



    See this article from 2009 about the state of YouTube when Google took it over: http://articles.businessinsider.com/...-credit-suisse



    Without Google there is a good chance that YouTube would have gone bankrupt. The same could be said of Skype, which still operates at a negative and has been saved by Microsoft (a bad purchase in my opinion).

    I was about to reply with the same question, but from a different perspective. I do not want to make it so accessible to have my employees share confidential project information on the web, accidentely.

    And I just don't like an operating system to hand pick these services for me. At least make this something which is configurable, and provide us users with alternatives for each type of service, like Facebook, instagram or whatever.

Google has ruined what was once a great site.



    One way to beat Google is to right click on a YouTube video in Safari and download it to your desktop. While that is downloading look top right and see if there is a sequel or another part of the video as some multipart clips are limited to ten or twelve minutes. Quickly get that loaded and as soon as it starts to play download that one too. Rinse and repeat for all you need.



    Start Quick Time and drag one video after another to QT so they are merged. Save as one huge new video. I drop that into iTunes and copy it to my special playlist to either view in iTunes or Air Play on Apple TV or the iPad.



    I do this with out putting up with anything, Flash or Google to spoil my day.



    Only an idiot would use Google Chrome on a Mac and expect to be able to do this with out dealing with intrusive Google ads and difficulties in downloading the video to your own desktop for total control.



    If Google ever inserted ads you could trim them out using QT.



    Safari and QT are remarkable tools if used correctly.
