YouTube gets more social with RealTimeYouTube is launching a new feature called “YouTube RealTime” to only 100 invited users. Here’s how it will work. There will be a new toolbar on the bottom right of the page. You’ll be able to see who’s online and who’s not, what they’re watching, and some info on their recent history on YouTube. From the sounds of it, it should be similar to the toolbar that shows up when you hit Facebook.

To be included in that 100, you had to be one of the first 100 to comment to YouTube’s blog post. This seems like an interesting experiment by YouTube to get some buzz going. People already waste hours on YouTube. By seeing what your friends are doing online and what they’re watching, you’ve got the ability to lose days.

At last count there were over 100 comments. Did you get in to the beta? What do you think?

    I'm in the beta right now. I must say, it's a really nice feature for those that only have a handful of friends(which most have). It's a great way to keep track in REALTIME what your friends are doing on youtube.
