Many people are uploading homemade videos to websites such as YouTube for public viewing.

I think this is a good trend. A lot of people make interesting videos. Some of them even end up getting a job on TV.

Also, if someone uploads his music video to YouTube, he could win a recording deal.

Sites like YouTube encourage more people to go online, and create publicity for those who want it. Uploading videos may even help jobless people find employment. For example, Hong Kong's 'Bus Uncle' was able to find work because he became famous thanks to YouTube.


Thanks for your letter, Yuet-Po. YouTube is an incredible phenomenon and has added a whole new element to the way we communicate. Stories are so much more compelling when we're able to watch events unfold and see the people involved.

We on Young Post love adding visual elements to our work, which is why we're creating more vidcasts for our front page. Our next vidcast will be next Friday - to accompany Lau Kit-wai's story on the Eternity Girls. Don't miss it.

You can watch the Young Post vidcasts on our website - And while you're on the site, why not join our online forum? We've got lots of lively conversations happening there over the summer - join the fun!
