Reviews of YouTube
Essential tool for educators
Comments: I have been using YouTube as a user since the launch in 2005.I have also used it to share content when I started my business and shared hundreds of video blog contentsIt always was very intuitive and easy to useThe fact that everybody knows about it makes it easy to share content to clients and friend alike
ease of useUniversalitySearch engine is greatAmount of content is awesome
AdvertisingThe way Youtube manages copyright infringement... algorithm based and mostly inefficientThe way the app on the iPhone makes it difficult to search history
The importance of YouTube in people's lives
Comments: I feel that my experience with this application was very wonderful, as I use it when I want to obtain any information I need, and in addition, I use it for entertainment purposes.
This application offers many entertainment and educational features and services, and one of the most important things it can offer is connecting different communities with each other, in addition to the information that you can obtain through this application.
I don't see any negatives in this application
A lot of ads and strict rules
I like that a lot of content variety is accessible on the platform.
There are a lot of ads and restrictions placed on all users.
Comments: My overall experience as been very good. Its is east to upload and use the studio. As well as find a community.
Everybody used youtube so it's easy for me to find my community. The studio as easy to use straight off the bat.
I find the censorship and copyright to be confusing. I know of a few youtubers who have been cancelled with no reason. So I feel its not a long term place to be. I also feel I must create a backup plan for when I get cancelled. I feel cancel culture as gone too far
A great platform to create, learn, interact
YouTube offers a multitude of features for creators (pros or beginners) and simple users and they can engage based on the content uploaded that can have a variety of themes. It always keeps up with the user's needs and digital, and social trends.
Although, I love that YouTube introduced Shorts (short-form videos), most times the feed is not refreshed in a day, showing the same videos even after multiple reopenings of the app throughout the day.
