How Far YouTube Has Fallen…


Date: June 09, 2018

01) FIRED BY YOUTUBE!


“The title tells it all. Maybe if you ALL watch this video, oh like, 2,000 times, they’ll keep me on!?”

Zipster is an excellent example of YouTube culture, when things were really just starting to blow up.

He’s an excellent example, of the user base which built YouTube into the juggernaut it is.

He may not be everybody’s cup of tea…but he attracted his audience of people, with whom his media resonated.

That’s what YouTube was, originally…and for many years…It’s what refugees from the mainstream media culture, came to YouTube for…It represents the true power and potential, that YouTube once had.

Now it’s just a cold tool, of the mainstream media…the same media, most of us came to YouTube to get away from…to jettison out of our lives…

You now cant even escape it…on YouTube…Unbelievable…

The YouTube partner program?…

…I remember that…It was a huge deal, when it started.

It says a lot about the time, and how much things have changed, that a channel like Zipster’s would be the first candidate to get a call.

As standards go…the original “YouTube celebrities” were small potatoes…barely significant in comparison, to what billion dollar corporations with instant name recognition can garner…

But these small, grass roots channels…are what YouTube built itself upon…

…And it says everything…that YouTube considers the early heroes of it’s own story, to be antiquated…and worthy of treating like this…

…I agree with Zipster…

…Those original, chosen channels, should be grandfathered in…They should be protected, and enshrined…

…But, if YouTube were to actually do that…it would have to be constantly reminded, and make a public admission…of just what a corporate twat it is…

Shame on YouTube.
