I know you all are probably wondering why I am writing this blog entry. Lol.
Honestly...I was planning on a more beauty related post however after experiencing issues with uploading a video I decided I needed to get some things off my chest. I was contemplating on doing a blog video on my channel but I wasn't sure how many people would be interested in viewing so I decided on a blog post.
So this will be my list of things that piss me off about Youtube. Now don't get me wrong...I love Youtube. I love being able to show others my videos, make friends with others, create videos for my viewers...there are many good things I can say about Youtube. And there is also many bad things...so lets begin. Now before anyone asks..no I am not a partner yet. So perhaps my views may change once I become one...whenever that is...
1- Why do you have to be a partner to choose your own thumbnail for your video? I think that is absolutely idiotic. I understand partners have privileges us regular youtubers don't but this should not be one of them. For one...Youtube only gives you 3 choices for a thumbnail which are randomly picked from your video. Why is it that Youtube has to randomly choose the 3 most UNFLATTERING shots of you possible. The one with a crazed look on your face...the one where you look like a maniac...the shot where you are not even looking at the camera. In my opinion ANYONE should be able to choose their own thumbnail. At least from your video if you can't upload your own picture to use. And if you do choose a different of the 3 crappy shots it chooses it would be nice if it didn't take about 36 hours to actually change.
2- What is with the 2 or 3 people who cannot seem to make up their minds if they are a subscriber or not? I check my subscriber count daily. I am always eager to thank those who subscribe to my channel and subscribe back in return. However there is always 2 or 3 subscribers who it seems subscribe and unsubscribe everyday. I gain 3...I lose 3...then gain 3 again. If I subscribe to a video then that's it...I am subscribed. I don't see why anyone would constantly go through this. It's annoying to me...I get to 500 then back to 496 then back to 500 again. Honestly...why not just pick...either they are a subscriber or not.
3- The Giveaway fans. Don't get me wrong I love a good giveaway too. I participate in them as well. I enjoy hosting giveaways! But people who only get on Youtube for giveaways really get on my nerves. Most guru's hold giveaways for their subscribers and viewers as a thank you. A way to give back to their subscribers and viewers for supporting them and as a thank you for their views. Sure new subscribers are welcome as well...but it's not fair those that join Youtube and subscribe to our channels so that they can join in a giveaway and then unsubscribe after the giveaway is over. That's not fair to us Youtuber's who make our videos and host these giveaways as a way to give back to our viewers, and it's not fair to our viewers either that these people join in on giveaways and possibly win and our viewers who constantly support us do not win.
4- Focusing more on new Youtuber's and Youtuber's who are just starting. Youtube needs to focus more on letting people discover new Youtuber's making videos and helping us to get views. I love some of my subscriptions who are fellow Youtuber's who have been making video's a long time and have many many viewers and subscribers. They are talented and deserve spotlight! However I think Youtube overshadows new video creators with focusing only on the popular and well known Youtuber's. They need a discovery section where people can discover channels with less views and not as many viewers. It lets people discover new channels and lets us newer Youtuber's have a place to showcase our work. So that we all can benefit from Youtube....not just the popular Youtuber's.
5-The new Youtube layout. It should not have been mandatory to get the new Youtube layout. I dislike it for many reasons. I do not like the layout, I do not like the lack of the background picture now, and the fact that my comments section is now missing.
6- The Youtube haters. Lastly and I have said this several times is the Youtube haters. As with any site where people put their all into their work and videos there will be those who feel they need to put in their 2 cents constantly. Those who watch videos only to bash them, to start rumors, to spread a negative attitude, and to talk about others in our videos. I never understood, if you hate a video why not just click the back arrow and quit watching it? Why feel like you need to talk about others? I believe it's just a way for them to get attention. So I have decided to always set my video's to approved comments only.
So there it is...that's my list for now. If your interested in seeing this as a video blog please comment and let me know! I will do a video on it if I have enough demand.
