Kaneva Brings YouTube Into Virtual World

Kaneva, which aims to integrate social networking into virtual worlds, now allows YouTube videos to be seen and shared on its residents' virtual TV sets. Kaneva says its seamless YouTube integration into a 3D setting is a first.

"We don't want to put our community in a box and force them to live with what we feed them," said Christopher Klaus, founder and CEO of Kaneva. "We want to empower our members to easily bring in and enjoy with friends their favorite media--including video, photos, and games--as another way to express their interests and connect with others."
