I do at times watch YouTube videos. I know there is a lot of rubbish, but there are clips that are entertaining or educational. I don’t create any myself, and that’s just laziness on my part, so you may say I should not complain, but I’m going to.
There are some things that bug me about YouTube, increasingly bug me.
I hate advertising in all cases, whether it’s posters on a bus, product placement on a film, interruptions to tv shows (I record the shows and skip the ads), spam e-mail, whatever it is. I don’t want your product, whether it’s female sanitary products or vpn services or web building wizards, or anything.
And to be honest, if I did, I’d avoid those companies who advertise incessantly, out of principle.
I left Facebook because the advertising was annoying. I stopped using Messenger – reporting the ads took too much time.
Nice to see my local baker in a tv advert:
