Ohhh Youtube, where would we be without you and all of the annoyances you carry?
Youtube is great! We can share videos of our talents, embarrassments, achievements, and fails. With all the love, comes a lot of hate to me. I’ll go over exactly what I mean and break it down simply…
At first, Youtube was hardly even heard of. People saw it as a great way to be able to share videos for friends and family to see, and the public to stumble upon. Since day one, though, YT has made it a difficult process. If you wish to be creative, then it would take the video down. Wish to add music or video clips? Big mistake. Your video would be banned and you would be warned of a banned account if you did it again. Had a strong opinion on something? How dare you take advantage of your freedom of speech!…GONE!
That was the beginning. Since then, YT has made progress and you can find just about everything on their site. When I say everything, I mean everything. Stuff that you wish you never stumbled upon. Many people comment on videos with, “I’m in the weird part of Youtube again…” I think we’ve all been there at one point or another thanks to the enticing titles and numerous views. Why is it that the videos of horrible talent, embarrassments, randomness, and stupidity go viral, anyway? Two Girls One cup? Really now, people? YOU’RE the ones at fault, ya know. That’s gross and unintelligent girls looking for attention in that manner don’t deserve it. Charlie bit my Finger? Okay…It’s a baby biting his brother’s finger. Hmmm. Don’t even get me started on that Fred guy. I want to vomit when I think of his success. All of these people reach Youtube stardom when there are real people with real talents out there with videos too that get no notice. People are so simple-minded these days. Yikes.
Anyway, there are many more annoyances I have. I definitely hate the lack of personalization to one’s profile compared to what it used to be many many years ago. I can’t stand the ads, either. Why do I have to watch a thirty second ad for an eleven second video? As if we don’t see ads enough as it is, we have to watch them before every video AND see them at the bottom of the video while it plays. another huge annoyance to me on there is all of the idiots who think they are so rad by having their own terribly self-made sixty second intro before their videos. I hate the people who choose to have five minutes of nothing playing at the end of their videos, too. Why??? I also don’t need the end of your video to be credits that you thought were relevant to be there. By the way, if people feel the want to comment, like, and/or subscribe to your channel, they will. No need to put that in your video numerous times and in the description.
This is the best that has been saved for last–Youtube comments!!! I love the comment section because some people, like the little kids and preteens have absolutely nothing else in their lives other than to comment on videos rudely to start drama since that’s what their lives are all about. The people that crave attention and can only gain it in a negative way turn to Youtube for it. They’ll go to a video like someone’s journey through cancer and comment, “I hope they die!” just to create a stir. I tend to “love” how people spend their spare time in life on Youtube to have fights as well. On every video you visit, you are guaranteed to find an argument. Geez start a blog or something, don’t create an argument on Youtube that’s completely irrelevant to the video you’re commenting on. YT is also great for little rebels out there that feel so high and mighty by clicking dislike on a video. Oh you’re cool. Right.
One last thing, try to be intelligent when creating a video title. Making one full of lies like, “FUNNIEST THING IN THE WORLD!#@$~@#” to get more views. It just makes you look more mentally incapable in life and angers people gullible enough to click it and become disappointed. When I see titles as such, I do not click them because it is a huge sign that it is exactly the opposite.
Stop creating horrible videos to become popular
Stop all of the unnecessary and childish comments/fights
Stop watching and supporting the morons that are doing so!
