A video like this could not thrive on TikTok, Instagram Reels, or even Facebook for that matter. This is my attempt to explain what's good about YouTube, and to encourage decisions within YouTube's leadership to consider leaving a bit of money on the table in favor of protecting the beautiful cathedral that they have created for us. Following the short-term numbers will destroy the beautiful thing you have created, but if you stay the course and stay true to Your Voice, I believe the fact that Educational content thrives here on YouTube will ultimately make you win in the end. Thank you to those who work at YouTube for making a platform where beautiful things like this can exist. The challenge now is to fight to keep it this way, when the siren song of more dollars is no doubt trying to pull you away from that which is good.

I would say, reinvent, redefine what shorts is for you right now and turn the shorts in to hooks to capture the attention of the segment of people that watch them. So capture them with curiosity and seed in them the desire to know more about the subject or idea you have teased them with. So when you upload a marvelous video like this one and publish it, right after, you upload a short that is designed to go fish minds and attract them to explore more, To go and watch the full video to deepen more on the subject or idea you have presented them with. So you will need to be very creative to do that on a very short amount of time. I am sure you can find ways to do it. You will probable need a lot of experimentation to see how to make them effective. And that journey will probably lead you to new discoveries and realizations.

I so needed to see this video. I create content for YouTube as a hobby and as you suggest, I have found myself wondering from time to time how I should "change" my videos to perform better (get more views and longer watch times). The answer seems clear to me now; don't worry about making videos that will perform, make videos that share and teach what I have learned. Don't lose my voice. I first started making videos because I couldn't find the answers to questions I had about a woodworking tool I was interested in. So I got the tool and made the videos I was looking for but couldn't find. Many videos later, I find it is very easy to get side tracked and caught up in video performance stats which increases the possibility of pulling me away from my voice. Thanks for reminding me.

@Luke Arts You make a very interesting and important point. I have noticed more and more people of all ages (from very young children to grown adults) are seemingly addicted to screen scrolling. They seem like they are in a trance and really not even paying that much attention. And then I think about my young years. I was tinkering, dreaming, inventing, and doing. TV was the only screen back then to get addicted to and most of the time, I found watching it boring. I rather be physically doing something. I recall the deep feelings of accomplishment when one of my ideas became real and worked (I built myself a toy car or boat or plane or something). What do young children addicted to screen scrolling have to feel accomplished about now? And I suppose the same question can be asked about adults addicted to screen scrolling; what do they get out of it? Be it right or wrong, when I contemplate questions like this, I always seem to circle back to education as being a possible solution. Do kids (and adults) know what it feels like to learn and actually physically do new things (sometimes fail but sometime succeed) instead of watching someone else on a screen? How do we get more people doing instead of watching? Now, don't get me wrong; I am a big fan of educational videos on all kinds of subjects and I like to think that the videos I make effectively share what I've learned while doing something. So my question is, how do we get people to do less watching and more doing.

Thanks for this thoughtful video Destin. I am constantly reminded of how ‘the medium is the message’ which makes me wonder what is the real message of YouTube? I think for a long time the message of YouTube has been in depth, quality content, which contrasts with other social media platforms. Like you I hope they keep it this way and don’t keep trying to copy every other platform out there. What I love about your work is you’ve never lost your voice. Thanks for using your voice for good on here.

So huge thanks, and looking forward for you next video. Honestly, I do not care if you optimize for algorithm or not, as I saw over the year's that you're staying true to yourselfs - so do what you believe you need to do. At the end it's all super awesome that we can get so much wisdom for free, and that's what we/viewers should appreciate the most.

I think YouTube definitely has its place but it's important to understand that audiences are changing. I love YouTube for the quality content that is available and have found that it has been a great way to connect what we are doing in our school with the PARENTS (and a small amount of students) in our community. My students are leaving YouTube and flocking to other platforms that are quicker, more instantaneous, and 'trendy'. This is a problem but where they are. They aren't on YouTube and I don't know if they are coming back. Other platforms have a younger audience in general but are more surface level in the learning or void of any positive learning at all (you can see this clearly in some of the ratios between numbers and actual creators and what the content actually is). They want to consume something short, quick, and are not necessarily adverse to learning just maybe not in a 'longform' format (it's crazy what that means to my students as of today). I know my four year old views food the same way but I think it's important that he gets the nutrition he needs to grow. If it means snacking more often, but on stuff that is nutritious and healthy, then maybe I'm okay with that, he's going to end up where he needs to be. I would love for more educational creators to 'infiltrate' what my students are exposing themselves to on a day to day basis. There is definitely an educational content vacuum in some of these spaces and I think having creators move into this space from time to time is beneficial to help balance what my students are exposing themselves to.

@HuntingTarg I do agree that I might lose the battle against the algorithm. But I still win the battle of conscience when people discover my content and enjoy it because it's honest and from the heart.

Fighting platform algorithms is ultimately a losing battle. YouTube controls the algorithms, so they directly influence who's watched & shared more/less, and who's monetized/demonetized. Ultimately the answer is to look for alternative platforms, like @RealEngineering has done. Vote with you feet and your wallet (and your mouse/fingers/stylus). If you choose to diversify or move, the people who matter will follow you (that's what 'follower' used to mean).

Indeed, the length of a video should be defined by how long it needs to be to convey the content or message in a meaningful, how long the editor wants it to be for people to being able to more easily follow and by what the person making the video fells like it should be.

I agree to the sentiments of not losing your voice. My content is very specific and has its niche, and I up right refuse to change the format based on the algorithm. I'd rather remain true to myself and continue to make content exactly as I intended with no tweaks to appease the neon god 😁. If it gets views, it gets views. If it doesn't, it doesn't. Ultimately it goes back to "How much can a person be paid to work to someone else's time or constraints?"

@Mahuk Youtube in part developed from this short video platform to one with longer content as well, as for some time, it was the only easy way to get longer content out at all. And keep in mind what technology with cameras we had with us all the time and the requirements for editing and uploads allowed us back then and now. Making a long video back then was quite a task. and back then, you tube was a platform used on desktop computers and laptops. Smartphones had not yet been a thing at all. Already looking at the format you can see TikTok for example was designed to be a smartphone based platform only. That all try to do everything (sort of) now is as all want to participate in the share of viewtime of every different format. For my part, I like to watch a video on my phone every now and then. I am not using TikTok at all, and if I really want to watch a video, I still prefer my PC with a big screen and good audio. Looking at parts of the younger generation, I wonder if they ever watch anything besides an about 6 inch screen in upright format these days. And it is quite easy to assume why youtube prefers longer videos these days. The longr the video, the more adds you can squeeze in to make money from. And we should abandon the illusion that any platform out there, is offering their services not to make money in one way or another. The difference is, at one point it was rather experimental, and there was less pressure to make money.

Fascinating and a little initially depressing to see all these sights swarming with people where they were not so much 100 years ago. I wonder if that is down to population growth of the shrinking globe brought about by cheaper air travel. Then I see your bit about actually experiencing these places in the flesh, and I realise that yes, they may not look as pristine, and spacious, but they were built to be enjoyed in person, not simply seen in photographs, and I realise that even though they are disfigured by the swarms of people, the democratisation of international tourism has enabled these places to be enjoyed as they were designed to be enjoyed.

Very good points. To add to the conversation, I'm not a fan of the dislike button no longer showing the count either. Now it's harder to sort through tutorial videos. I learn how to do some household tasks like change outlets here on YouTube. Now I can't tell if the video is clickbait, low quality, or if everyone got electrocuted unless I read the comments in every video. The problem is, content creators can turn the comments OFF. So now people here on YouTube can curate a well crafted lie for watch time, and even propaganda can flourish now. I think they're creating a monster without even realizing it. The YouTube shorts are only going to exacerbate this downward trend too.

As a traditional blacksmith when I first uploaded to YouTube, one of my first comments was from a professor who said " this is a great example. It's not not the strongest or the smartest that survive but the ones that are most adaptable". I've never forgot what he said. I've since moved from being traditionalist and embraced all technology no matter how modern and ever changing in order to not just survive but to thrive. I'll never forget the journey and I'll always love and appreciate the traditional skills but I think change is not only good but necessary. Thank you so much for sharing your journey. Cheers J

@Novantico yes in a way I can do more projects for enjoyment as not everything I do has to earn money. When I was stubbornly trying to hold on to my identity as a traditional craftsman I was actually really unhappy and maybe even depressed. Letting go and adapting was actually very freeing. I now tend to think most things that are good are to be enjoyed for a time but not to be held onto too tight because when change happens it is very painful, but if you embrace change then it can be exciting entering into something new.

@Marino Hernandez using technology for marketing such as YouTube itself is one. Using CAD software and using CNC laser cutting for most of my parts prior to forging is extremely efficient. Using modern welding equipment instead of traditional joinery has opened a hole area of work and that is very profitable that I couldn't access if I remained traditional. I've even built my own power hammer and about to build my own CNC plasma table. I started off wanting to be a purist traditional blacksmith but failed to make it sustainable and so adapting and embracing change has really benefited me and helped provide services to a greater amount of people by making metal work more efficiently.

To be extremely unfair, one of my favorite Youtube features is the "Playback Speed" setting. I listen to almost everything at at least 1.5X, many things at 2X. The biggest lesson I've learned by doing that is the importance of processing time. Many persons (such as myself) with no (or little) useful site use computers with screen readers, and some of us push the words-per-minute well past 5- or 600. The ingestion of the information is rarely a problem; processing it and making it personally relevant is the tough part. I think the most difficult part of watching Youtube, the biggest thing that loses voices (either personally or socially) is jumping from post to post, video to video, without giving oneself processing time. That's why I turn off "Autoplay." I want to choose what and when to watch next. That's why, if I were a creator, I would post videos when I had something to talk about: maybe four a week, maybe one a month, without letting myself become an assembly line of content. No accusation at all is intended in that; I don't really know your upload schedule, but we all need time to think, discover, and discuss. Be well, and thanks for the videos.

I do often get stuck into the "death scroll" of Instagram after I check a message on there but I really enjoy watching your videos because they do keep me engaged and thinking. I actually get something from them instead of maybe one good laugh from a half decent meme. I really do learn things. Now do I need to know how to put out a fire on a nuclear sub? Not really but it's something cool to know and I'm sure that I will use some knowledge that I've gained from your videos in some situation someday. Thanks for the content, glad to see it won't be changing too much.

There is a roughly 40 minute video of exploring the Somme and recreating photos taken over a hundred years ago, and its amazing to me that you can see just how much the earth was moved to accommodate the Great War, and just how much of those earthworks still remain exactly the same today.

Love this, and thank you for your constant quest to gather and then share knowledge.   Your comment about "what does this mean for future generations" got me thinking of another bad YouTuber trend where they may purposely misstate, mispronounce, or misspell things in order to garner interaction by people jumping to correct them, which boosts the algorithm, gets more promotion, and gets more views. Yes, it creates engagement but it's the wrong kind of engagement, and the more you repeat an incorrect thing the more likely it is to be accepted as normal. Over time, gaming the system in that way to get more views or engagement like that can actually hurt future generations. Anyway, I like that you're concerned about the legacy of your voice, and not just how far it carries. :)

I agree about Notre Dame; most of the reason people want to visit is to see that time capsule; how all the parts of such a building encapsulated a period of time in France and Europe's history, and the relationship the Catholic Church had with art, architecture, and civil engineering. When you randomly change bits of it to have modern art, you lose part of the spirit of the cathedral, what makes it what it is.

@A HA i think you are forgetting that the current french people are the descendants of the people who didn't leave france to go colonizing, while it is the white people of africa and the americas the ones who descend from colonists... Now, why should the descendants of french peasants that never even saw the riches of Paris, let alone the riches of, well, erm, africa, be forced to accept people who hate them unfairly because of a fallacious argument about colonialism? And before you start claiming that all the french benefited from colonialism, let me remind you that before 1880, 95% of the french population was rural peasants, they didn't see a penny, unlike the defunct monarchy and republics of the era. You are taking it out on the wrong people, and they don't appreciate it one bit. I expect cultural relations to get worse in the coming decades, since you can't have 2 or more cultures living in the same place if they share an original-sin-styled historical narrative that works against the native population. It's going to end up like every historical example we have, in a hot-cold civil war, and don't think that people aren't aware of this. When i lived in france a few decades back there was people who tried to make this clear to their government officials, yet the americans had already decided the fate of france, no matter the will of the french people. And pretty ironic that you complain about colonialism when the topic of immigration comes up, since, unlike immigrants like me who integrate as best we can, these types stick to themselves and establish their own neighbourhoods among the native population. I think there is a term for those places and behaviour, oh yeah, colonies.

​@F F Most viewpoints and cultures do not mix. Even a cursory look at the world around you or really any point in history makes this patently obvious.

This was enjoyable to watch. I've thought about it often when I chat to full time YT friends who I can see are chasing what brings in the clicks, and thus revenue. And it's their livelihood, so I never judge but I can tell they don't always enjoy it as much. I have also not been able to engage with shorts, which tbh I've considered almost a failing on my part as a 'creator'. But I am privileged to have an outside job, and a small enough YouTube channel to not really feel those pressures in a meaningful way. I can't imagine what it's like to run a channel with millions of subs and several employees. The other reason I liked it was that I've spent a great deal of time in Paris and love it dearly – it's an interesting choice for then & now photos as it's had strict building restrictions in the centre since even before the Belle Époque. A thoughful introspective vid :)

A very fascinating video!!!! The power of the “Voice” is amazing!! Thanks for your version/vision of voice….. You hit a major point I have thought of often. The “short” version… I watch Utube because I have the choice to go in-depth on a subject and think about it. It provides many opinions and points of view. That’s the short part. But it also allows you to think about it and make your own choice. That’s the long part. At least for me… Thanks again for the video!!! Definitely a change of pace!!! Keep your voice!!!! Please!!!! In this point in time too many are content with letting others “Voice” for them……

Shorts are fast food but long form is a home cooked meal. Yes fast food is popular, but it cannot beat moms cooking. It doesn't make you feel good in the long term, that's why I think there will always be a spot for long form videos here on YouTube. Shorts is just an answer to where the attention market is moving towards, and I am not immune to this. Destin you said you are resisting but are not closed to shorts. I am a noob but I can personally vouch that there is value in converting a long form video into a short. It is like distilling an idea to its purest form, it shows whats important, and is just another tool in content creation.

Corporations being able to buy your voice and use it to sell product is the only benefit you get from using the internet in this way. We are all no nobody on the Internet by design. Corporations are trying to change that model so they can profit from it. Not so you can have more voice. The Internet is meant to be "EVERYONEs" voice. Not just the highest paid most commercially viable voices curated to us by the Corporations that for all intents and purposes, own them. It blows my mind how people as smart as Destin, and the people he regularly associates with, could get the Internet so completely wrong. And fall so easily for corporate "gifts".

Bravo!!! Resist! I think your voice is great. This episode was amazing and I loved it. I grew up on 35mm cameras and loved photograph as a hobby, taking thousands of pictures across the U.S., Canada and Europe from the 1980-2014 when I became ill. So it was particularly interesting and meaningful to me. Today this is the only platform of the ones you mentioned that I even use. I’m loo old,, 50 meaning I have a longer attention span for whatever reason, to waist my time on those other platforms. Certainly not the insanity that is TikTok, which doesn’t encourager intelligence and actually provides a platform for people with poor mental health. Enough said. I use YouTube for learning, investigation, -documentaries, news, entertainment, current events etc. But I’m not encouraged by what has happened here lately. Actually everywhere. But specifically on YouTube, the topic restrictions, word restrictions, cancellations and the removal of dislike counter all worry me. I hope the world regains it’s sanity soon.but I’m old enough to remember that it doesn’t have to soon or otherwise. Regardless, your chanel is interesting & entertaining while it teaches.

Great video, Destin. I find it is a different battle, though, for fringe full-time creators, who one month could make a sustainable amount of money, and the next be on the brink of needing to take up a second job to pay rent. When you want nothing more than to do this for a living, the fear of it all going away is very strong. And when making those little tweaks can be the difference between making rent and not, it’s very hard to ignore. I think most people want to stay true to themselves, so it really is a shame that it’s turning into a platform where not everyone can afford to.

Thanks Destin for another great video. Always thought provoking. One thing I'd be interested in regarding your data analytics is this: I see your length of vids has increased with upload date and longer vids correlate with more viewers. However, over that time you have also gotten alot more subscribers. It'd be interesting if you could normalize the data to account for subscribers (ie % of subscribers that watched your vid). This, I feel might add some nuance to the data and make it more relevant (you may be getting more views, but less % of subcribers than you were getting with shorter vids. Your subscribers may actually prefer vids in the 5-15mins range, but may not be seeing that with the data as it is formatted now). All the best! God bless.

We can invite biases into our lives while tricking ourselves into believing the opposite.
