YouTube 101 - Privacy Settings, Sharing, and More

As was mentioned on their blog today, YouTube recently added a bunch of new informational videos to the official YouTube channel. The new series of videos is called YouTube 101. These videos are designed to introduce people to some of features of YouTube beyond simply watching videos. Some of the things the videos teach are how to share videos privately, how to upload videos, and how to create your own YouTube channel.
