YouTube has always been a host of viral videos and this year is no different.
However, there are number of other portals popping up today that enable video sharing and promoting. Communities such as newsflare are enabling video content creators to share their videos, find the right buyers and/or audience, and generally allow for good content to go viral. These platforms are definitely taking video content creation to the next level! That being said, YouTube still remains as one of the most popular video platforms to date.
