HowToBasic has a very entertaining, and very cathartic, way to return to the old YouTube design. Hate the new design? Just watch this video and be amazed at what you can do to defeat the new YouTube One Channel. You'll probably have to watch it more than once to get the concept.
It's interesting trying to figure out "how to make a viral video." Chances are, though, if you have "viral" in mind while making a video you're probably not thinking the right way. Anyway, here's a video from Hunka Wunda (and bonus vids from Daily Grace and Nigahiga) that tell you the secrets of viral video creation.
Vine is on Android, finally. It only took 5 months, but the app that iOS users downloaded 13 million times has finally arrived on Android. Users of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One will be able to use the zooming feature on this app, which makes this version unique from the iOS app.

Unruly has unveiled something they call the "Social Diffusion Curve," which shows the life of a video measured through its shares.
