It’s been about a month since Hulu officially launched to the public after their 18 weeks of private beta testing. For those of you who have been able to try it, what do you think of it so far? Everything seems to be going well, so hopefully they’ll be expanding the service elsewhere in the world soon.

Now that users are getting comfortable with the service and all that it offers,  Hulu has decided to add some new features which make sharing videos easy. They just about covered every main social service out there. Now when you’re watching a video, just look for the “share” button and icon. Clicking it will display a menu like what is shown above. Notice that you can send the video you’re watching to the following sites:

  • MySpace
  • Facebook
  • Digg
  • Windows Live
  • del.icio.us
  • reddit
  • StumbleUpon
  • Google Bookmarks

I decided to see what would happen if I shared a video to Facebook. I was already signed into my Facebook account so it automatically pulled up a page that looked like this:

From there I was able to add comments and then either click “Post” to post it to my profile, or switch tabs and send it as a message to one of my friends.

Another great feature as Download Squad points out is that RSS feeds have been changed so that you can receive videos as enclosures. This means that you no longer have to leave your RSS feed to watch a movie, instead you can watch it right from your reader. Nice, huh?
