Top 10 Reasons to Leave YouTubenelsonerica 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
This is very true. Youtube seems to actively reward all these horrible people. And due to the studies done by sources such as New York Times and Vox there's also worry that Youtube is being used as a breeding ground for the Alt-Right. Because those kinds of videos always seem to get pushed to the forefront, and how they feed off Youtube's algorithm to the point where it thinks that if you watched just one of their videos you're the biggest fan and want all their other videos shoved in your face. The amount of times I had to click "Not Interested" on entire channels was just staggering. - SuperSonic17
I hate youtube. Always have. Always will. They need to be regulated. Too many trolls. Awful.
Youtube is Not Great Anymore
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
There are still great people on YouTube. The problem is everyone is giving the bad ones attention. - 3DG206 Comments
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?
It's AWFUL! People can't make or upload good videos anymore, I hate YouTube now for what it is, I can't even find a good video to watch with all that CRAP in the way, YouTube is dead man.9 Comments
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.
Give them a chance.
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!1 Comment
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 agree. I just closed my youtube account because of some really mean and ugly comments that were made to and about me even when I ignored them. It's no longer enjoyable to comment without getting blasted. I will watch videos but not comment. But it is easy to sit behind a computer screen and spew hate.
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.
Ya honestly I fell like the people who been on youtube the most, defends these bullies. Sures there's negative criticism but it can be done maturely without threaten them into drama or death threats. Just because people can use the " Constructive Criticism" excuse doesn't mean it's a pass to be an total ass. I feel like these youtubers are profiting bulling by these steps. 1. They see a YouTuber they don't like 2. Make a "commentary" or rant I should say, to them 3. The fans of the Self Proclaimed Commentator Flames on the victim youtuber he made a video on 4. The commentator collected all of his and her subs just so he can get money and views to make the victim small and harmed. That's how youtube goes today. Big youtubers picks on small youtubers for profit. For instance take keemstar for example.6 Comments
I once watched an 8 out of 10 cats video. the next day I get loads of videos about James Macaster, who I despise. And the 8 out of 10 cats video did not mention or have James Macaster. - DylanB5
I watch 2 Smosh videos for the first time in months and what happens? A ton of Smosh videos show up in my feed. - 3DG20
I hate "recommended for you". It is so annoying.
All the time, it made me hate YouTube so much.1 Comment
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
Yes! So many people who use clips as evidence or as basis for commentary get a strike. A 90 minute video can get claimed for a 5-second clip, and then the striker can get the video taken down (used a lot if they just want to bury the evidence) or they can claim all the revenue! As if the creator didn’t do any work at all!
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.
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
Freedom of speech, really. Though hearing children swear all over the place is cringey.2 Comments
The abuse of youtube to "subscribe" to get rid of all of the inane ads...as if they can pressure you into buying a monthly subscription by nagging you to death with advertisements and then stopping the music you're listening to to make you click, "yes...duh, I am listening still"
There's probably an ad below this top 10 comment!
The massive increase in advertisements recently has completely turned me off You Tube. There is no way I would subscribe - it’s way too expensive.
I see what you did there. You put an ad on this one.
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
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.
Agreed so much. Ripoffs and stealing both suck.
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.
Comment like Bad Song on good music which makes no senses. - Rawflesh0615
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!
If your video has big bold letters and giant arrows pointing at something in your thumbnail I'm not watching it.
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.
It's poisoning people's minds with useless information which slows down your reaction time
It doesn't make you happy you need to live and escape from social media
Why the hell?
"GoTtA mAkE yOuTuBe kID fRiEnDlY! " Say to the ones that posted an ad of underpants...
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.
Why would I bother paying for Youtube Red...I don't get it.
I hate that YouTube is banning sml from there site these new rules are the reason why I hate YouTube now
People will produce videos daily, that are dumb or stupid, just for views. 1 big Youtube channel with 3,000+ videos, might have 20 good quality videos that actually don’t make you cringe.
Makes sense though...
Yep true, those so called users never educated enough to think strongly on which music they listen. - Rawflesh0615
Can these folks debate somewhere else? Bunch of wannabe jokers. - Rawflesh0615
I seen comments from Non-political pages where people who talk to much off-topic like Obama, Romney and even Trump which the video hasn't do anything with real life. - Rawflesh0615
People just post reaction videos because they want more viewers, people think they're funny when they're actually not, they are just annoying.
Seems like the Terms is not as strictly implemented as it is here on TheTopTens.
Honestly. One hour length for videos made in youtube editor? The heck?
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.
A lot of manipulation from YT, recommending me to watch a politician I absolutely hate and despise umpteen times, during his candidacy for an important position that got aired even in other countries (the guy is a puppet of a powerful country).
A lot of nauseating agenda. I will delete my account sometime, and would gladly use a nascent alternative to raise view counts and make that video hosting site popular.
Also the horribly psychopathic comments... Trolls and clickfarms accusing others of trolling and bot claim clicking. I hate Google too. Prying and shoving itself down your throat so that you can use services life forces you to use (work, for instance)
I want an alternative. Seriously.
Example: J.B.M. had made an deadly prank called "Rainbow Dash.EXE" which shows Rainbow Dash.EXE slaughtering those poor Little Ponies, Torturing them with one deadly weapon and then targeting your Microsoft Account with Rainbow Dash.EXE which says that J.B.M. is going to hurt you. J.B.M. should go to prison for blood guilt.
Most of people shouldn't take to serious with those toxic comments:
1. Makes your body shiver.
2. Makes your mind shocked.
3. Very immature for the younger who has some less strength to go on internet.
4. YouTube loved those comments for more funding. - Rawflesh0615
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.
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.
Spam Comment. - Rawflesh0615
They congratulated a corporation. A CORP THAT USED ILLEGAL SUB BOTS. YOUTUBE YOU FOOLS! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO DESTROY THE DARK SIDE, NOT JOIN THEM!
Exactly. THey pick random ads for you to watch and in some of them there may be swearing.
