What Do I Think About The State of YouTube?

            So what are my thoughts about the state of YouTube? Well I will get to that in a moment. Recently YouTubers have noticed that YouTube has shut off the comments but it is very much temporarily but it does cut off communication with the content creator and their subscribers which isn't good. The comments is a great way to interact with your fans honestly, get new ideas for videos or can be also a great tool to hear people's thoughts on the video.  I heard it is a temporary thing and I have seen it for myself that video comments was off and I know not all the comment section are taken off from the creator and it has been proven as there is an an article and if you google "YouTube Shutting comments down" you will find it. The reason behind it if videos have kids on it they will temporarily shut the comments down and it is understandable as for the safety. However not all comments are bad though, there is going to be a ton of positive comments that are being made. Next thing is there is channels being shutdown for controversy and I do understand that but really, I feel like the freedom to express appropriately is not around anymore. The freedom to discuss things on the platform isn't like it use to be.

            I mean it has changed so much since I left 2.5 years ago and it hasn't gotten better. I feel like the platform is slowly on it's decline and I feel like YouTube will not be around much longer if it continues down the route but I understand the reasons behind shutting down but it would be nice to have a little more freedom to express ourselves as creators but what do I know, I am a retired YouTuber for the last 2.5 years now going on 3. But it has gone downhill since I walked away from the platform and it is truly sad to see it go this way and yes I have rambled about this numerous times and there is always something that is to be said and that is why I mention it but it isn't too often but when something happens I will talk about it and my feelings but this is only my opinion but let me know in the comments below on your thoughts on the state of YouTube.

Have a great Wednesday!
