Tag! New Year's Resolutions

December 31, 2010

Whether you followed-through on last year's list or not, the time has come for new New Year's resolutions. And nothing ensures that you'll stick to your guns like publicly posting a video on YouTube so that the world can hold you accountable.

In the last week, there's been an influx of New Year's resolution videos as people prepare to begin 2011 on the right foot. But we've also noticed an interesting trend utilizing the popular "tagging" device on YouTube, in which one YouTube user will virtually "tag" another user (or group of users) in his or her video and request that those tagged respond via video. For example, in this case, Glamourista16 created this video back on December 18, inviting a number of other popular YouTube users to share their New Year's resolutions:

As more and more people have been tagged, more and more have uploaded videos naming their resolutions for 2011. A quick YouTube search for "tag New Year's resolutions" produces more than 300 results at the time of this post ( you filter the results by uploaded this month, you'll get more than 100 results).

Making your resolutions is one thing, but how about keeping them?
