YouTube Labs, in an obvious jab at its own Web 2.0yness, has created The Smiley Face Factory, a profile picture creation tool. Why, you ask? Because “profile pictures are so Web 1.0”. You might find this feature a little underwhelming, but YouTube doesn’t think so.
We believe The Smiley Face Factory will revolutionize how the online world expresses itself and will push the boundaries of Web 2.0 into Web 3.0.
I compliment YouTube on its willingness to break new ground and always be on the cutting edge of innovation, I just hope they haven’t gone too far this time ; ).
