Sharing an YouTube video isn’t difficult. You can send the url of the video to your friends via email or just ask them to search YouTube to find that video. Simple, right ? But it isn’t fun. Imagine watching the video together with your friends and also interacting and commenting on it while watching it…..now that’s fun.
