Well, I call it complaining because those who saw it are either too unhappy about it or, they are ignoring it already.
Hashed comment words like #LOL and #FAIL are showing up in an odd shade of orange. Not only that, you can also search by hash tags.
So, a search for #LOL gives you this page with #LOL highlighted and separate from lol or #lol. Currently, the system identifies only a few words like #LOL, #FTW, #OMG and #FAIL. All these words are shown as links to the search for that particular hash-tag.
YouTube is either aiming at something similar to Twitter’s “Trending Topics” feature or, it is trying to create a new user generated section. Both of these will drive in huge traffic from social media activists, now that YouTube has seen five summers.
It is too soon to give this feature thumbs up or down. We should wait and watch. Google will come up with something innovative. It always does.
