The Maranda Writes

You HAVE the Right to know!!

Since making my first viral video a couple of weeks ago I have been  even more fascinated with the internet sensation. Viral videos are those self-created videos posted on sites for free such as YouTube and .

YouTube is great because it allows you to post videos for the entire world to see.  Popular videos are ranked as those that receive the most hits or views per day. 

You Tube has performances, interviews, Tv shows, movie clips, how to videos, general knowledge videos, and other random videos.

Some clips are removed due to copyright infringement laws of corporations preventing their images to be shown on a second party site.

While browsing the internet the other day I noticed a popular fan page for a South African boxer named Oscar. He was known as the talking dog.  This unknown couple from South Africa began taping their dog a howling along to songs a couple of years ago and now they have a strong base.  From Happy Birthday and Happy New Year salutations, Oscar sings it all.

Here are some of my favorite videos from Oscar.

This is an example of the magic that is YouTube. It has the power to take virtually unknown everyday people to overnight celebrities.  Starts have been born and found on YouTube pages. Its almost becoming a way of  self promotion.

Have a new CD coming out that you want everyone to know about. Make a video with a simple camera and upload it to YouTube for everyone to see.

Without YouTube I never would have known Oscar even existed.  YouTube is ranked in the top 5 percent of most visited web pages on the internet by users.  I can see why.

 You have the Right to Know!
