Sharing Overload?

First: Watch this hilarious VW spot on YouTube:

Second: Press the share button below the clip.

On the top we’ve got how many people shared this link on twitter, facebook or buzz. Do we really care about that?

Then the most important bit, the actual link, which we can shorten. Although I don’t know why, doing so cuts the size down by 25%. I’ve always thought YouTube links were some of the simplest out there: “Shortening” it turns it into: Go Belgium I guess.

And then there’s no less than 9 places I can share it. Half of them I haven’t heard of. And really, Myspace?

Can I just have a link?
