Family and friends can now visit your account page on YouTube and view your videos. Remember, anyone surfing YouTube will be able to view any videos you have marked public, though it will make sharing them with your family and friends easier. For private videos, you will need to befriend the other user on YouTube and/or send them a message through the service to share the video's link.
