As expected, YouTube has launched video advertising integrated into YouTube clips. The ads are semi-transparent banners at the bottom of the screen. The ads last for a few seconds at the beginning of each video. If you click on the banner, a video ad opens and plays in the same window. Overall the ads are well integrated.

Implications - The online world has become a large community of people worldwide, leading businesses to take advantage of the Web for marketing purposes. With millions online each day, the Internet has become an even better place than TV to show off new products through viral marketing and videos. In this digital age, businesses will continue to find ways to creatively use the web as an advertising tool.
