YouTube has lost its way. Years ago it used to be about broadcasting yourself but now it’s all about filling their platform with false sitcom based content.
Let’s use Jake Paul as an example, he portrays a life that isn’t 100% real, the content is made like a production to lure younger viewers in to gain viewership, and to make them believe its a life to aim towards. The unfortunate part of life is that isn’t always a bag of fun and even away from the cameras there is a lot of hardship.
I’ve briefly touched on previous YouTuber’s such as Lance Stewart for his false ghost videos, and thankfully that is but a distant memory. People within his own fan base were getting tired of being mislead, but now he seems to be back on track with his usual vlogs in New Jersey.
I pointed out these two specifically due to them being able to mislead their fans and somehow they come back from it like nothing happened.
The one thing that’s helped some creators is the recent ads issue, where these big YouTuber’s had ads on anything no matter what it was, but now they have finally stepped up and took the ads away. If you are truly misleading people and doing it knowingly, you shouldn’t be earning from that because it is false advertising.
Talking about the ad issue, it has been uncovered that certain people have rights to bypass their advertisement checks for monetisation. Bit of a kick in the teeth if you ask me, but YouTube are a force of their own and they can give different rules to whoever they want; we all know they will deny favouriting certain things, but we are used to this.
Somewhere in these ramblings you will understand my point, big YouTuber’s can do as they please, and Hollywood overruns the network.
