"Slam" Your Viral Video On Youtube!

Youtube has acted on the recent viral videos that do the rounds on the net and created a weekly award section on the site called "Slam"
The idea is that a variety of awards will be given for various different categories of videos and Youtube users will vote on their favourites.

On the Youtube Blog it explains that for now the categories will cover the following five different aspects: comedy, cute, music, bizarre and dance.
It's a pretty good idea I guess, the overall idea is really to engage users more and get them to discover new videos, to me though the only drawback is that they probably won't be showing some of the crazy viral videos that have been unearthed in the past, Jessica Slaughter and Coppercab to name a few, I mean we all know how youtube like to censor the ass off everything we do on there!


  1. Great initiative, viral videos are probably what most people use YouTube for besides music, at least I do.

  2. I'm digging it. Makes it easy to find what's hot.
