Art Babble is a new website that is like a youtube but for art. I don’t think it allows any user generated content, it’s art related so it is heavily curated but the quality seems really high right now. Already I’ve found more than few videos I have never seen and was interested in. Additionally, the suggested content section alongside each video is really great and unbiased (links out to other websites).
They also seem pretty well focused on the social aspects, commenting, facebook, etc. I do wish they had a twitter account I could follow. It’s hard to compete with youtube, and there have been other attempts at curated content, but I’m very excited about this, so I hope it takes off! check it out.
