Government Agencies Warned Off YouTube Use

Workplace embarrassment via YouTube is nothing new, but the Federal Government now appears to be getting seriously stressed about the problem. Andrew Colley at AustralianIT reports that new guidelines urge agencies to consider carefully the implications of using the popular Google-owned video sharing site, most particularly because they won’t have control over what other videos appear alongside their content. Given the obvious benefits of YouTube in purely financial terms (do you want your tax dollars paying to replicate its infrastructure), I can’t help thinking the government’s concern over appearing near videos like the one above is perhaps a little OTT.
