It is our observation that most of the time whole is greater than the sum of all its parts. In the world of online video this seems to be true where a partnership between the two famous creators leads to awareness of both the partners. The entire YouTube network is now encouraging collaboration between the popular and talented personalities to work together on different projects and promote each another.This process of collaborating with each other has not gone unnoticed by YouTube, the online video giant. It has launched a YouTube NextUp program in collaboration. In the process of building this program the YouTube will select 30 creators that will work in collaboration to create videos. They will be provided with equipments and funds. Some classes will be arranged to help them start their work.
The people who will be selected for this task will get the funds worth $3,000 and the production equipments worth $4,000 to help them create high quality videos. In the month of March 2013, a creator camp will be arranged at the new LA office of YouTube in which the participants will be asked to film their videos.
After acquiring the New York City based Next New Networks, the YouTube has organized various NextUp contests. The aim of these contests is to identify the new talented creators and provide them with guidance and money. Since the launch of NextUp program, over 215 talented creators have been identified and funded from 15 different countries.
The applicants who want to participate in this program will have to look for another creator with whom they would like to work and then they can apply though the program site.

Handful of mobile sets are used in the first world countries but the Facebook’s growth is due to the rising market which is fragmented over seven thousand dumb and smart phones. According to the product manager Peter Deng, for mobile phones Facebook has kept an office library in order to test all these. He was asked a question that what the company is testing now? He replied that they are testing a new version of Messenger for non-Facebook users.Before the beginning of this month, an email address was required in order to sign up the Facebook products. Still there are many people out there who do not have an email address or a Facebook account. In order to reach these people Facebook has taken an initiative of launching a Facebook messenger that can be sign in with your name and phone number without the need of email address or Facebook account.
Initially the target for Facebook is those countries where they have a low penetration. These include Brazil and India. In India the total population is above one billion but there are only sixty five million Facebook users. In this way Facebook can attract non users towards making an account on Facebook after using this messenger service.
At present the Messenger is only available for Android users. Peter Deng revealed at LeWeb that they are under the process of developing new version for feature phones. He further said that they will carry out some testing as the cramming of Photo sharing, group chat, geolocation and other features of messenger into a phone is difficult task.
The Facebook engineers can use the mobile devices from their library for running the alpha builds in order to check them.

Instagram on Tuesday announced its 90 million users can now browse their feeds on the Web, just like they already can on their mobile devices. To check yours out, go to Instagram.com and login to your account.
Instagram says your feed on the Web works similarly to the one on your mobile phone. You can browse through the latest photos from people you follow (and get updates in realtime as they post new ones), like photos by double clicking on them or pressing the like button, and comment on them directly inline. The company even says you can shrink your browser down to a single column to make your feed “look more like your mobile feed” but somehow we doubt anyone will do that.
Here’s how it looks:
There’s also an ellipsis icon just below each image (bottom right-hand corner) which brings up a drop-down menu. It offers you the option to view the Photo Page (as you could before if someone linked to an image elsewhere) and a Report inappropriate button in bright red type.
The move today is part of the mobile company’s broader strategy of expanding to the desktop Web. Despite the gradual feature rollout for its website, however, Instagram insists that it remains a mobile-first social network.
“We believe that you should be able to access Instagram on a variety of different devices, any of which may be convenient to you at a given moment – including your desktop computer or tablet,” Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom said in the announcement post today. “We do not offer the ability to upload from the web as Instagram is about producing photos on the go, in the real world, in realtime. On the other hand, Instagram for the web is focused on making the browsing experience a fast, simple and enjoyable one.”
It’s a simple, but functional experience on the Web that hasn’t added anything significant to the Instagram experience. Viewing and interacting with photos – either through comments or likes – all works flawlessly and in that regard, it should be seen as a success. Without the ability to upload photos and apply filters though, the Web version does still lack the key piece of functionality associated with the mobile app. Despite Systrom’s comments today, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was rolled out in a later update.
The addition of Instagram’s recognizable feed is a big step for the company – now part of Facebook – and should help keep users engaged with the product. It follows the launch of profiles on the Web back in November 2012, as well as the basic photo pages that arrived in June 2012.
Today’s announcement, however, means the social network is finally offering a similar experience on mobile and desktop, at least when it comes to consumption. As mentioned, the creation process remains mobile-only, and likely will continue to be as such for a long time.
