Well... what do you think?
Why anyone would watch YouTube is totally beyond my comprehension, Australian morning TV news networks "must" include the obligatory news clip of the day.
Do teenagers rule?
Why don't people get a real life?
Good luck to the person concerned but it's a sad indictment of how far society had disintergrated when trivia becomes important.
Or is it? Seems I remember olden day news reels from the 1930's era with stupidity which cheered people up.
Maybe I'm just too old, cranky and live too far in the past.
A main stream Australian TV network [Ch 7] just aired at [08:45 Z] a short shot of an Asian fellow loading his head up with bricks.
This is dumb TV, even dumber because people actually believe it is real, I have sufficient experience in the construction industry to know that was physically impossible. Kids watching don't know that.
Now whether main stream TV or the YouTubes, it needs to be stamped out and I don't care who is making money off it.
This is not censorship, what next? Some dumb kids getting 15 seconds of fame by putting shotguns in their mouths?
Surely anyone with half a passing brain must realise limits.
Anyway, more power to this guy. If he can make $20,000 a month from cat videos--at least until the next big thing comes along--he's got my admiration.
But i have a two month old kitten so it sort of caught my attention! And yes, they rip your home to shreds far more effectively than an out of control combine harvester.
They show ads on the lower part of the video. There's an inch-high ad on the screen that slides up and stays there unless the viewer clicks to close it. Revenue is split with Google.
He's making 20 grand a month while getting only a portion of the penny clicks on a site where blindness to the ads is huge?
Now i'm impressed... (or am I about to cry?)
I personally think live cam feeds aka lifecasting will overtake premade videos in the future. I am expecting to see YouTube incorporate these at some point.
Cats are a popular topic there. Ditto dogs ("talking" dogs esp.). They are amusing and cute. Every single moment of the day does not have to be filled with Bakhtinian analyses of Dostoevsky's novelistic discourse.:)
I have also watched videos about my niche market there that were serious. There are all kinds of things there, just like the rest of the internet.
I was wondering about the ads. I noticed them last time I was watching videos about mambo music, heh. I have five cats, but I don't think they are ready for the small screen.
