YouTube Trash

Well this is going to be a doozy.

You're not going to see me complain about YouTube itself (as if enough people already did that), but rather some of the absolute shit people post there. So one night, I was browsing YouTube on my phone whilst watching a video and then I see this. (The rest is in there, don't worry!)

For context, look at the second "recommended" video.

This legit makes me want to wonder what in the hell people like nowadays. Not only does it have LITERALLY 9,999,999 VIEWS when I took this screenshot, but it's the THIRD OF A SERIES?!

Nah, I'm kidding.

 

Those who have a keen eye and notice patterns quite easily will notice that the 9,999,999 views is actually the uploaders username. Almost fooled me to be honest. What honestly makes me blame YouTube over everything else is the fact that it was recommended which makes no fucking sense because A) I haven't watched an Undertale video for around 3 months, B) I wasn't searching up any lewd things, get your mind out of the gutter and C) How many people DID fall for it? Whilst I didn't actually tap on it myself (and I'll be honest, I don't really want to), I can imagine a lot of young children and people who have weird fetishes for anthropomorphic blue fish with eyepatches clicking on the video only to be, you guessed it, CLICKBAITED! The only reason I can guess this popped up in my recommended was because of it's tags, and it makes me wonder why YouTube hasn't took any action on those who abuse tags to get into peoples recommended feeds. It's sad too, because it's a really simple and easy solution. Look at the title AND the tags, as well as maybe a couple comments here or there.

Oh, and don't think I'm leaving ads out of this, far from it.

Holy hell, the ads on YouTube are almost as cancerous as some of the videos on YouTube. Not only do we have the infamous weight loss scam going on here, but I've seen an ad so far about exploiting a bug on a CS:GO website, an ad on how to get "free" Steam money and one that told me how to win free CS:GO skins. ogmf giv me sum fre csog sknis pls!!!!!!!1!!1!one!!!!exclamationmark!!

Again, these ads are catered to what you watch. I don't play CS:GO, but I do watch a lot of videos about them, which is probably why these ads appeared. After I stopped watching them, I noticed they never appeared again, so that's something I suppose.

YouTube is the most popular video uploading site, and it's easy to see why. A pleasing user interface (if a little inconsistant), an amazing player which can compress on the fly, and a really healthy community. However, more and more people are leaving YouTube and again, it's easy to see why. False copyright strikes, easy to clickbait, so much goddamn drama, and other things of the sort.

I can't think of a good reason to fully appreciate what YouTube's done thus far.

An ad I usually get on YouTube is for Legacy of Discord. The game with false ads that don't even use their own game for their ads. And yet I get ads for them when I have never even touched that. YouTube does nothing about those either. And the fact that anyone can have the same username as other YouTubers. It's crazy.

i don't know if this is a french thing or not, but the ads for free stuff (zomg totally not a scamm) are actually here too, but this time for clash of clans and clash royale! no idea if youtube just doesnt care about what the ads are as long as ppl pay or if it slipped through, but one thing is sure, and that's that it didnt work. i never used it but my pals that still play it don't have unlimited stuff and gems like every person that didnt spend a thousand dollars on the game, so i assume that it was a dank scam.
