YouTube redesigns Web site

YouTube has taken the wrapping off a new Web site design that’s focused more on sharing and getting access to content from channel partners of the online streaming site.

The new site has a central panel that connects to your social networks such as Twitter, Google+, Facebook and MySpace. It also has a new, gray color scheme that builds off of its “Cosmic Panda” layout that’s supposed to be cleaner and simpler. The new interface is easier to navigate, with three columns that lay content out in a more orderly fashion, with personal information on the left, a display column in the middle and recommended videos on the right.

The service is aiming to modify the way people interact with the site, by giving people an easier way to return to specific content creators rather than watching videos based on searches.
