YouTube Launches Local Version For Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Yemen

10 Mar, 2011

After Launching an Arabic version, YouTube has started offering local version for Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Yemen.

According to Google announcement local version of YoutTube means people who visit the site will see on the homepage the most popular videos in their home country along with those that are rising in popularity.

This sound like a logical step as YouTube is growing in popularity in the region and many more active users from professional media and immature users are uploading videos everyday to the number one video sharing platform in the world.

YouTube is offering also recommended channels based on watch history, shared videos, and other channel subscriptions.

With this move YouTube is adding more pressure to regional video sharing sites such as iKbis and D1G as another avenue of their value is diminishing: local feel and touch.
