Reason: Google is a dispatcher. It can be regarded as street crossing where many people walk by and leave quickly. If you want to meet people there, then enter manually. But usually you just search and leave without much communication.

There are 10 rooms on youtube in the video section. Rooms are currently assigned to segments of the video ID space by the leading letter of the ID. Four letters are combined into a room., e.g. a-d and e-h.
Yet, these rooms are already crowded and something has to be done. The question is now if the ID space is split up further, e.g. by single leading letter or even 2 letters OR if we jump directly to the ultimate destination and make a room for each video.
After all, virtual presence is about meeting people with similar interest based on the content. If there is a room per video, then you know that the person you meet watches the same video as you are. The perfect reason to talk.
Are we ready for that, yet?
