YouTube is a big place, but we’re trying to make it feel a little bit smaller. That’s why in April, we announced a new initiative in which you submit questions on a broad topic and then several employees who work in that area answer the most popular questions on video: http://youtube-global.blogspot.com/2010/04/youtube-team-to-respond-to-your.html . It’s an opportunity to ask us anything you like relating to the subject at hand and to get to know many of the faces working at YouTube.
Our first topic was partnerships, and there were 2,017 votes on 96 questions from 223 people. After reviewing your questions, rehearsing, applying a little more makeup than usual, and rehearsing some more (because we’re not naturals at this like you are!), two members of our partnerships team — Shenaz Zack, Product Manager, and Camille Hearst, Product Marketing Manager — made this video response.
