YouTube's New Feature

Via Tech Crunch

YouTube has just enabled a new feature that allows users to directly share their recently uploaded videos to Facebook, Twitter, and Google Reader. This means you’ll be able to syndicate your newly uploaded content directly into your friends’ feeds. You can link your accounts on YouTube’s ‘Upload’ page.

Of course, there is already a sharing button located beneath each YouTube video that lets you post videos you like to a variety of services, but this would help automate the process. YouTube is clearly looking to expand its sharing functionality (see YouTube Real-Time, which is currently in private beta testing), and increased sharing to these other services seems like a logical extension.
