Just like many popular sites, registered members can rate videos, or find out
how many times other people link to a video clip for their viewing pleasure.
YouTube.com provides and publishes this information for your convenience, for
its loyal fans. Have you heard about Netflix? The idea is the same. Netflix is an
online video “store” if you will, like Blockbuster. Registered members can log in
and rent videos sent directly to their home. They can also rate and review the
videos they see. That way, the public has a better feel for what videos are
worth watching (and whether there are some videos they shouldn’t bother with).
