YouTube Rolling Out 'Messenger' For Native Sharing And Chatting

+YouTube is rolling out a new 'Messenger' feature for their mobile app, leading to some confusion about why YouTube even needs a messenger or why Google needs to add 'yet another messenger product' to its overall portfolio.

These reactions, however, miss its real purpose: to enable users to share and chat about videos natively. Until now, YouTube has been almost unique among social networks for lacking a native sharing mechanism (an equivalent of a Facebook Share or a Retweet, in other words). At the same time, YouTube Comment sections have never been known as great forums for discussing videos, especially privately with friends. This has driven all sharing and most discussion off the network to other networks and apps.

+Instagram had the same basic problem, and ultimately arrived at the same basic solution: a native sharing mechanism that, rather than sharing an Instagram to your Followers' streams, shares it privately to designated users, with whom you can privately discuss it.

The point here is not become a new 'Messenger', but rather a simple and elegant solution for users to share and discuss YouTube videos with the people they choose without ever leaving the app. This could make YouTube a more truly 'social' network than it has ever been before, while also boosting the amount of time users spend watching videos and the number of videos those same users share.

Everything you thought you knew about DNA's shape is wrong.

In recent years, scientists have made tremendous progress in reading the sequence of our DNA. But the three-dimensional shape of DNA remains mostly mysterious. In fact, it’s only recently that scientists have even begun to get a glimpse at how our DNA is folded. Today, scientists focus on the ways that gene mutations cause diseases like cancer. But totally normal genes can still malfunction if they get folded in the wrong way. It’s possible that ongoing research may eventually reveal a hidden world of “folding diseases.”
