White House Drops YouTube

YouTube won’t be providing White House videos any longer due to privacy concerns, according to this C|Net report.

The focus of the criticism was on the use of long-term tracking cookies by the Google-owned video-sharing site. When the new White House site first went live in January, every visitor to the president’s blog would be issued a tracking cookie, even those who did not click the “play” button to watch the video.
