Royal Wedding of Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria Announced on You Tube

We had another sign that social media and You Tube are not a fab.  I am thrilled to see that social media are becoming a legitimate channel of communications in several parts of the World.

The Swedish Royal family announced on You Tube the upcoming wedding of the daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf, first in line to succeed to her father to be married to her long-time boyfriend, gym owner Daniel Westling.

Strangely, the Canadian Press news report does not mention it at all. They also failed to mention that rumors over the last 24 hours in the media fueled by bloggers lead to the crash of the Sweden Royal Family Web site.

I watched a show about US politics on CNN last Sunday morning. They were often soliciting people comments and referring to their friends as in Facebook friends. I am scare that the traditional Canadian news medias are so behind in social media. What do you think?
