I must say I was slightly apprehensive about typing up this post. On one hand I love social media - the interconnectedness, ease of sharing, and down-time; but on the other I hate that this medium can at times be more isolating than uniting.

In the midst of dozen of video sharing sites (yes, YouTube being the biggest-duh), lately I find myself wondering why certain videos are uploaded onto certain hosting services. Not only that, but I’m often given advice here and there about where I should upload my own videos. So I decided to do my own digging, and decide which site is best.
