Blog #6 - Eric
The very first thing I notice is the differences in their content. Hulu seems to have videos/content created by companies, where YouTube has any video that anybody wants to upload. Generally speaking, Hulu is only used as an alternate to TV/movies, where YouTube is used for other videos. The only time I actually go to Hulu is if I missed this week's The Office or to catch up on Modern Family. For any other video form of entertainment, it's straight to YouTube. They both also have advertisements, though Hulu tends to do sponsorships with a quick blurb before the video and a few throughout the video, while YouTube has occasional ads at the beginning of the YouTube sponsored videos.
