The Problem With the New YouTube
The name YouTube perfectly described the platform of my youth. People making and posting content of themselves meant to be shared online. And not necessarily with the hope of going viral. What has it become now? Small YouTubers are overshadowed by corporations and businesses. Individuals who become successful now all sell merch and maybe even have exclusive content unlocked for a price with "join" button or with their Patreon. Youtube’s algorithms give me dumb suggestions I don’t want to watch because of all the clickbait out there. How has this happened? Is this a problem? Is it inevitable evolution of the medium?
