Top 10 Reasons to Leave YouTube

nelsonerica
We all loved YouTube, it has given us so many awesome videos and shows for us, there were people who made funny videos that made us all laugh.

But it seems that we don't have any good videos anymore, and instead they're being filled in with a bunch of crappy garbage videos that don't mean anything other than shock value and laziness.

It's a horrible evolution for YouTube and much of the Internet.

Here's a list of the reasons why we should all leave YouTube.

As far as this list was made, it is flawless and has no mistakes, it deserves approvement for what it is.

The Top Ten

1 It's Not Good Anymore

YouTube needs to be back to this fun site it used to be, not this trashy money-making site that hurts our heads, I hardly see any good videos anymore, yet I keep going on many different channels to see if there are any good videos, and so far, very few, once they get removed, then YouTube is dead.

It's the Worst site now, I used to go on it, I loved it for so long, but now it's not good anymore, I can't watch anything on it anymore, all the videos I love are destroyed and replaced with horrible videos.

YouTube's mainstream is horrible now, back then it was good, but now it's all crap, what happened to the good days of YouTube?

All of the most subscribed-to youtubers are terrible rip-offs who make bad quality, boring, and unoriginal videos that take 5 minutes to make, meanwhile really good youtubers who actually care about their fans and want to make the world a better place (it sounds cheesy but its true) are having no luck. Most major and minor youtubers nowadays just relies on clickbait for views, because if they gave out actual descriptions of their videos, they would be royally screwed.
Also, it's now spammed with cancers such as twelve-year old cussing commenters, terrible people who do nothing that doesn't benefit themselves, and of course the haters and fanbases.
And seriously, the monitoring system? Great youtubers are taken down for simply stating their opinion while videos of prank-throwing water in people's faces when there's an acid thrower going around still stand!
Youtube is almost as bad as the whiners on Tumblr now.

2 YouTubers Have Become Bad People

YouTube used to have awesome people you would want to watch their videos of and subscribe to, they were so funny.

But nowadays, that isn't the case anymore, now we're seeing even the best YouTubers in history become bad people, they are doing bad things like making fun of people, swearing, not listening to fans, and showing off their body parts for more viewers and money, it's serious, they've turned to the dark side.

It just shows you that YouTube and its people have lost their charm and can't be good anymore, they choose to be bad and not realize what happens when they do that. - nelsonerica

Most of the bigger earning YouTubers have become so ugly and pretentious. They brag about their money and it's total ugliness.

*cough* THE PAUL BROTHERS *cough* *cough* - awesomedp900

I so agree on this one. Nathaniel Bandy, SMG4, Chuggaaconroy, bill wurtz, I Hate Everything etc. did get worse over the years. - TheYoshiPyro64

3 The Comedy Is Gone

Remember when YouTube used to have all these funny videos from people, they made us laugh so hard we would get the hiccups.

But that's hardly happening anymore, and even the funniest people we once had on YouTube, have gone downhill to extremes, and with that, it has been connected to us that YouTube cannot be funny anymore, but instead have gross videos treated as comedy. - nelsonerica

Actuallyi he comedy has grown - Nateawesomeness

Sam Pepper pranks are comedy for me LMAO

He touched girls in their butts and pretended to kill a best friend, he got reported multiple times, because he's the biggest demon on YouTube, it's his fault for making those videos. - nelsonerica

Actually, we have SMG4, bill wurtz, Nathaniel Bandy, Memeulous and more! - TheYoshiPyro64

4 YouTube Doesn't Respect Smaller Channels

They kick off the smaller channels that aren't making enough money for the company. As if Google doesn't have enough money!

Actually, we have PewDiePie; hate him all you want, but he actually does donate to charities and has appeared on smaller gaming channels. - TheYoshiPyro64

Give them a chance.

5 Harsh Comments

When people went on YouTube, they posted comments about the videos.

But then, like we didn't hope, people started posting comments that were wither rude, insulting, negative, or just annoying.

Some people made fun of others, and there are even people who are bullied by others when they're just trying to let others know, and there are also comments of people not liking certain sexual orientations.

We know things like this happen on social sites, but on YouTube, it has gone too far. - nelsonerica

Then leave YouTube. I personally find it to be good site; just avoid the bad users. - SwagFlicks

I Hate the comments people post on YouTube, most of them are to bully others, they hurt people, and some of that is going on here too, but nowhere near as much, Plus, this site is still good compared to the now crappy old YouTube.

Harsh? More like someone can't take negativity. "Bullying" has turned into a word used by people who overreact over criticism. Not everyone would like you and you can't please everyone. And I acknowledge that not everyone would like this comment, too.

It goes with it, harsh can describe as either too strong and/or bullying, it falls within that, and there really are people fighting a lot there. - nelsonerica

It's full of like begging virgins, channel advertisers and obnoxious kids now. R.I.P Youtube

6 Reliance on Shock Value

YouTube used to be the best site ever to go on, but lately, people have been doing weird things like this, such as talking about and doing weird things, like joke about certain subjects/objects like certain body areas, and often, they even flash certain parts onto the cameras for shock value, more viewers and money.

It's just such a shame that people do that very often nowadays on YouTube, and it's just one of the most desperate attempts at gaining more viewers, subscribers and making more money, it just ruins their reputations and pollutes our entertainment and minds, how can anyone watch a good video with all this garbage around? - nelsonerica

7 Copyright Strikes

YouTube used to accept people uploading videos, including clips from shows/movies as well as full shows/movies, for free, but then one day, someone complained about copyright and reported to YouTube about it, then YouTube was hypnotized and removed the videos, and then, they have grown so much that they complained to the point of taking down even edited videos, YouTube isn't even good anymore. - nelsonerica

I completely agree with you. I remember a time when all the good Disney movies, all the Kratts' Creatures and Garfield and Friends episodes (nostalgia fuel for me), and all the Animal Atlas episodes were on YouTube, but then they had to ruin it with the copyright claims while leaving bad videos to stay on the site.

This is a major peeve of mine. I wish it didn't happen.

8 Swearing

It's actually true, people swear because they want to and because they want more viewers, they don't realize that it's not a way to get viewers, and they're being horrible, people just like to mess their minds with idiotic psychopaths that pollute our internet, at least this site is cleaner and better.

I feel like I am the only adult on the whole 'net who doesn't swear. I wish more people didn't swear as it can be unpleasant and there are many words you can use as an alternative.

Swearing is a big problem, we know lots of people on Earth swear, even your parents or siblings can swear, but on YouTube, which was once a place for just about everyone to go on, it has gained in swearing to levels we've never measured before, and even some of the most iconic people who didn't swear back then are swearing now, it shows you more proof that YouTube is going downhill. - nelsonerica

Oh, boo hoo! Let me play a sad song for ya on the world's smallest violin. - Mr. Krabs - TheYoshiPyro64

9 Bad Videos are "Recommended for You"

I hate "recommended for you". It is so annoying.

All the time, it made me hate YouTube so much.

10 8-year-olds are Having YouTube Accounts

I KNOW RIGHT

Not all 8-year-olds are terrible, but they should not be having accounts. Especially on popular YouTube videos, those "children" says things like "ime onlee 7 but hadd secks with 10 gurlz," or "Ime 8 yeerz ol buut alreedee 9'10" tawl," and many other unrealistic comments. Not all children with YouTube accounts do that, but most do. It's annoying to many adults skimming through the comments. I apologize if this is a stupid comment. - anonygirl

The Newcomers

? YouTube is Toxic

It doesn't make you happy you need to live and escape from social media

? Google Buying YouTube

The Contenders

11 Plagiarism

YouTubers used to make videos with their own original ideas, but they aren't doing that anymore, instead, they are being like everyone else, of course when you get older you want to move on, but what they're doing is plagiarizing each other with their not-so-random videos and many people and I can't even go onto YouTube anymore with all those copycat videos being made, they either ran out of ideas or just don't want to make good videos, they lost their effort and talent. - nelsonerica

It's called a SCHTICK. A few YouTubers would copy one another but that's called INSPIRATION. - TheYoshiPyro64

Agreed so much. Ripoffs and stealing both suck.

12 Too Many Advertisements
13 Google+

YouTube used to be great and free, and back then, people would upload any video for free without signing in, but then Google+ decided to take over YouTube, and that was when it first went downhill.

Ever since then, people had to sign in to Google+ and get an account from them in order to upload videos, like/dislike them, subscribe to the YouTubers, post comments, etc.

Google+ is a big corporation made by Google, but Google+ did not help YouTube at all, it was originally supposed to be a social sharing site, but instead, it ended up being a marketing place that forced people for money, YouTube didn't really even need Google+. - nelsonerica

True, Google+ was what ruined YouTube in the first place, people have to sign in to Google+ in order to upload videos, subscribe to others or post comments, Google cares too much about money and they don't give a thing to people because they beg too much for money, yet I agree it was supposed to be a social sharing site, when it instead became a greedy marketing site.

Google+ sucks, they are AWFUL and they ruined YouTube, now you have to sign in to Google+ in order to have a YouTube account.

14 Spammers

There are comments like this first, notification squad and who is watching in.i always report comments like this because they are spamming the video and they also get likes for nothing this comments that are already unoriginal. these people should stop doing this and no one cares if get a notification squad or your watching in 2018 or 2019 and if your first cause NO ONE CARES

FIRST COMMENT ON THIS ITEM! ! YEAH FIRST COMMENT!

Nobody cares

15 The Channels Aren't Good Anymore

Remember back when you go on YouTube, you saw these amazing channels, but now, even if/though they're still there, they aren't good anymore, and it shows you that they have evolved into awful channels with little to no entertaining videos and and the people making the videos aren't good anymore. - nelsonerica

I can't STAND the channels YouTube has now, it used to have awesome channels to go on and watch videos on, but not anymore, they're just creepy and disgusting, who would pay people to watch them?

The good days are over.

16 All the Clickbait
17 YouTube Red Was Launched
18 This Video Is Not Available In Your Country Block
19 The First Comment on every video

"FIRST! "

20 The Youtube Rules

You can't do anything anymore I got striked for a video that had no cussing and no injuries or anything and it was took down and when I said appeal it they said it violated the terms of use oh what is it you have to be a kid frendly person what is this youtube kids

I hate that YouTube is banning sml from there site these new rules are the reason why I hate YouTube now

21 Subliminal Advertising
22 Majority of the Videos are Gaming Videos
23 Reaction Channels

People just post reaction videos because they want more viewers, people think they're funny when they're actually not, they are just annoying.

24 This Video Is Private Block
25 The New Rules

Honestly. One hour length for videos made in youtube editor? The heck?

26 Not Monetizing Channel

Principle. THat is all. It's easy for some copyright shill to make a claim and monetise your own video, but you can't realise the value, albeit your own tiny fraction, of the net worth that is youtube. I'm going.

27 Censorship

Youtube has flagged videos because they do not agree with the opinions in those videos. They have also automatically demonetized channels who's message they don't agree with.

28 People are Greedy

I can't STAND these people now, they used to be good. now they're just trying to make as much money as possible, they can't make anything good or entertaining, and they have no respect or wisdom towards others, and some of their fanbases are awful, yet the innocent fans want them to make good videos again, but the people making the videos don't care about them, nor do they respect, some of the T.V. networks suffered the same downfall in their evolution, and so did a fair amount of other sites, like DeviantArt or Facebook, I hate YouTube now because the people making the videos are now too greedy and are DESPERATELY hungry for money.

29 YouTubers Are Now Violating the Terms Of Use

Seems like the Terms is not as strictly implemented as it is here on TheTopTens.

30 Misleading Thumbnails
31 Scam Videos

So many videos are just uploaded to get people, especially smaller childeren, onto a scam site. Often because they then will receive "Free Gems" for a game.

32 Quantity Over Quality
33 Biased Trending Page
