Nigerian Version Of YouTube Launches On December 7 [REPORT]
Techloy reports that Google might launch a Nigerian version of YouTube in December. Nigeria will join Egypt, Kenya, South Africa and Tunisa as African countries with specific Youtube versions. The service will be officially announced on December 7th and Google’s goal is to help Nigerians share and find local content via YouTube.com.ng or Youtube.ng .
The domain YouTube.com.ng was purchased in 2009 and YouTube.ng was purchased in February this year for about $20,000. We aren’t sure what services will be provided, but like the Kenyan version it might have dedicated pages in local dialects. Google might have also partnered with local broadcasters and content creators to bring Nigerian content to the service.
Like YouTube.com, users will also be able to share local content. This will help local creators publish content to a specific audience instead of random uploads to the main YouTube service.
