CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY: After offering just a smattering of videos to Verizon’s VCast service and to browser compatible phones via, YouTube has now optimized a vast majority of its videos for the mobile space. The WAP-based site has also been revamped to include more personalization and community features, allowing users to subscribe to channels and upload videos directly from their handsets. The service still requires a 3G network and is quite data intensive – meaning it could cost an arm and a leg depending on the data plan you’re saddled with.  Full edition: CYN DIGITAL. (Or to listen to the Cynopsis Digital Podcast click here or subscribe to it at iTunes here .)

CYNOPSIS KIDS – TODAY’S TOP STORY: The BBC is getting ready to launch MyCBBC, an online social network targeted to K6-12, an audience that is not served by competing sites all of which require members to be older, this April 2008.  The BBC, a publicly funded broadcast service, is being disparaged for this move, according to This Is London, with critics saying that commercial online outlets are already providing like services and that the public broadcaster should focus on programming.  The BBC says MyCBBC will be a safe site for kids, with full protection against predators, and users will not be able to make contact with strangers.
