As a person who’s grown up with YouTube, I can definitely see the shift that has happened. I remember being 11 years old watching videos like “Super Mario Frustration” on the platform. A type of video that wouldn’t fly today. Now I’m watching 20+ minute Game Theory videos and last night watched a 43 minute NileRed video. I’ve been telling people that TikTok is cringe because of the type of videos that get popular there, only to now realize you’re 100% right; TikTok is just young YouTube. Eventually TikTok will become the current day YouTube, which makes me wonder what YouTube will be in 15+ years.

Tik Tok will mostly die like Vine or just slowly fizzle out, unless it adapts. If it adapts, it could be very risky if it was a really huge change but if it could be changed in a way that doesn't harm the short content that Tik Tok is good at, it wouldn't combat YouTube that much honestly. YouTube has dealt with many things but still has survived, another platform rising above would be very rare even in half a decade. If YouTube had a limit or a guideline that drives YouTubers out to other platforms, it is likely but YouTube has been doing some pretty bad updates and YouTube is still well. YouTube dying is unlikely

It sounds like it sucks to be a monitized YouTuber sometimes. Seeing how much YouTube in 2021 being a totally different place than it was in 2011 is bizarre; heck it's even more bizarre how much it changes in a year.

been trying on an off for years to make it big on some social media and would be great to do it on YT but it never really took off so I tried twitch and that hasn't taken off either. idk what to do other than keep streaming and hope for the best. this is obviously my dream job since I can do it all from home while doing the things I love. but so far hasn't worked out and idk what I would even want to do other than this. I've given it a lot of thought but this is the only thing I could see myself wanting to do. I'm just afraid it might be too late to start without starting somewhere else

I am very disappointed that you were not willing to address YouTube censorship. This is a major problem and it seems like you were making excuses for them by implying that YouTube was "growing up". It bothered me enough to stop following your channels.

Christ Jesus IS the Son of God
Christ Jesus IS the Son of God

Admit that you have sinned against God and that there is absolutely nothing that you can possibly do to save yourself. Surrender to God totally and completely with your whole heart and ask Him to forgive you of all of your sins in the name of Jesus the Son of God. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God that died on the cross (at Calvary) for your sins, he did it for you, was buried, and rose from the dead , it is really true. Put your faith in him as your Lord and Saviour. You MUST be born again. Have you been born again, is the Spirit of Jesus Christ in you right now at this moment? If you sincerely surrender to God humbly and sincerely privately ask Him to forgive you in the name of Jesus Christ, If you pray and ask genuinely out of a pure heart, He will hear you and He will forgive you completely and you will be born again, and the Spirit of God will enter into you and be in you forever, and you will never perish but you will have everlasting life. Ask God to come and enter into you in the name of Jesus Christ the resurrected Lord and saviour. God bless you.

the issue for me is, I can think of several old tv shows on dish and directv from the 2000s - early 2010s that would be immediately demonetized or even taken down if they where aired on youtube another issue is that sometimes it really seems like platforms like this take a political agenda, now does it? I don't really think so, but what I'm talking about is things like the instant and brutal silencing of anything to do with the situation in that really dry place over seas when that happened

He's so smart with this whole inner workings of YouTube and him and Steph does so much work in the background, I like seeing it. I find it better than the theories. Although it could be because I don't play many new games and over time game theory has shifted to keep up with trends (not a bad thing)

I really don't mind the length of the videos. I play one on while eating and : 1-it makes me eat slower which is healthier and 2- I use that eating time to relax/learn/have fun time! I have also noticed that the longer the video, the better the creator knows how to distribute their energy throught out the video and they don't literally steal my life source when watching/listening to their content.

if tik tok would run ads it will either be another annoyance to some viewers but good for the creators and probably the wise choice of movement is 5 video will play first before showing a short very short ad then continue with another 5 videos of the creator. Lucrative but business is business

Hey, don't worry too much. I was like 9 when all those viral videos were being uploaded, I remember the days of the Annoying Orange, Nyan Cat, Sneezing Panda, cannibalist Charlie and rabbid unicorns, but this is just because of nostalgia. We forget the bad stuff, which I can assure you, there was a lot of it. YouTube went the way of art in the second half of the 20th century. The scene was flooded with people, which meant a massive influx of content being produced, but only a minority of it was good enough to still be remembered. We forgot all the bad videos from 2008-2012 like we forgot all those artists and songs and movies that didn't make it. Maybe you missed "the good old times", but you are still in a position to experience how the platform develops Who knows, maybe something great could come out of all this :p

It's just a real shame all the kids are doing the things we once loved watching on youtube... on a platform owned and regulated by a company _who is itself owned and regulated by a dictatorial communist regime._ TikTok just reeks of trouble, and it has already shown it can and will censor content the CCP doesn't like even outside of China -- a real shame all the kids are too busy wanting to follow the crowded herd to realize the shepherd's leading them all right into the butchery.
