YouTube - Youtube need to fix the blocking (block users)

The only thing that annoys me is not being able to fully block users on YouTube. I want to be able to not just mute people but block them from coming to my actual channel like TikTok. I really think that YouTube and Google are enabling stalking and bullying and have done so for many years. If someone is harassing me on YouTube, I do not want to see them in...

YouTube A Personal Perspective on YouTube

As I delve into the reviews of The CareGiver Partnership, LLC, I can't help but reflect on the mixed sentiments shared by customers about YouTube. It's evident that YouTube, a platform many of us turn to for entertainment and information, is facing criticism on various fronts. From concerns about censorship and content manipulation to frustrations with excessive ads and user experience issues, the reviews paint a picture of a platform struggling to meet the diverse needs of its users. Despite its flaws, YouTube remains a significant part of our digital lives, offering a vast array of content that both captivates and frustrates us. As we navigate the complexities of this online giant, it's essential to approach it with a critical eye and an understanding of its limitations.

YouTube A good review about You tube

You tube is an online task that you can go on. It is really entertaining for kids and adults. Sometimes you tube could be a bit appropriate but sometimes they fix it or sometimes they don't, but they mostly do so every thing with you tube is alright and good to know, and if your child isn't aloud to see anything appropriate they can go on you tube for kids and adults can go on normal you tube, and no you tube doesn't suck person with the sponge bob image, you tube is a really good website and there are people who make good videos on you tube like the ACE family which stands for Austin and Alaya, Catherine and last of all Earl. The oldest to the smallest are Austin then Catherine then Earl then Alaya. It is something really good to watch on you tube, they do the best videos ever. Soon I hope I could do lots of good video's but all I know is that Familia Diamond 100% copies them.

YouTube Ok I have been an avid youtube user for quite a while

Ok I have been an avid youtube user for quite a while now. I like youtube because if you want to watch a video on how to do somthing then search for it if it isn't there well make it for the world to see. I know that most people go to it just to see viral videos and some people go to learn how to do a particular thing like maybe glitch in Modern Warfare 2. Me myself I watch them to be entertained. Now that they have a safe search feature on the site then it is easier for parents to monitor what their children watch which might help in some of the accidents that have happened because of some of the videos. The only gripe I have is not being able to actually download videos without having to download an add-on into Firefox. You have a variety of videos to watch from funny to fitness. Sometimes you can even watch Tv shows be they are usually taken down within a couple of hours after upload. I recommend this site for entertainment.

YouTube I dont understand negative feedback about ALLOY. but I can only speak on MY experience

ALLOY is a GREAT company in my opinion. Overall... NOW... I will say I did one time get one pair jeans that was waaay too tight in the ankle. And I couldnt get across my toes or ankle or whatever. So I sent them back... sad face... but otherwise I think they are pretty good... Yeah, as with all companies there are pros and cons. But. I love ALLOY... and they show great care "in my opinion" of how they try to help their customers. So rock on ALLOY. I love their clothes. I am 41. Dont look. At all but truth is I am. but I can shop from them without feeling like I'm trying to look like a teeny bopper or young twenty-something. But all the same if the shoe fits... lol I am also tall... height is 5.9 and half and weight is a little over 145 almost 150 mainly height. But I do or could stand to work out a little. To "tone". But otherwise their clothes are sexy. Fitting. Appropriate for my age group... Soo please give them a try... and again to each its own... I hope this helps someone... I will never say a company is perfect. But overall ALLOY isnt far from. SHOUT OUT to them LOOKING OUT for the TALL SLIM CHICKS... lol

YouTube I could get lost in YouTube for hours on end

I could get lost in YouTube for hours on end. I think that TV stations and the like should allow clips on YouTube. Like So You Think You Can Dance? I always want to see dances that I love again and since that show cannot put out a great DVD with the ones I like I think the next best thing is to have YouTube have them up. They could even put commercials in there... short ones. 8 seconds.

What I really love are the people I follow who give commentary on what they have heard int he news, movie reviews, people who have skits, or those that sing really good with covers and their own stuff. Youtube has nasty commenters, but I don't read the comments often nor do I make comments that often. I vote. I think that it's great to see videos run freely like this.

YouTube is one of those sites that is a double edge sword. People just have to know how to handle it and it can be a great tool. And just like the internet it has dark spots that many should just avoid all together. Don't let those dark spots suck you in like political spite or angry speech. Stick to the real and the happy. Don't anchor yourself with cynical thinking that could so take you in a direction that you don't want to go in.

Oh and I love finding clips of old cartoons I haven't seen in a really long time. Love that.

YouTube I want to share this with everyone

I want to share this with everyone. I was over my boyfriends house one night and he put a movie on that was playing on the AMC channel. Well I have never seen this one before it was called Tombstone. It featured Kurt Russel as Wyatt Erp and Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday. I am sure everybody has heard of the Tombstone Arizona, and the gunfight at the O. K. corral. I enjoyed this movie so much. Val was so funny in this that I was laughing so hard my ribs hurt. I know that the real shoot out was not a laughing matter, as a matter of fact very terrible and sad that cowboys hurt people that way. The Erps were just trying to employ some kind of law. After watching the movie I was curious to see what the people really looked like. I visited many sites by using there names. I got to see what all of them looked like. The good guys and the bad guys. This was very interesting to me because I got to visit the past. So if you go to this site you can see parts of the movie. Then If you like it, you can buy it. I liked the movie so much from tv that I went out and bought it before I ever visited this site. When you go to this site click on the site that says my favorite scenes from Tombstone. To be able to watch the scenes from the movie you can type in www.youtube/docholiday, or www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ydgkvwh3jq. I hope this is of interest to some people so they can see how people treat others so badly. This is a reality check for all of us. Sincerely, Lorraine W.

YouTube *** Update! Not an Order Nightmare anymore

Sooo... update on Alloy...

Order was processed After a. Phone call, a few emaiks, etc...

AND... order and clothing are fantastic!
Dis not get the 90% or the jeans I wanted, but 50% of new arrivals was/is decent and the jeans fit like a glove and I look about 20 pounds thinner!

Thank You Alliy for stepping it up!

Updated 7/25/16

*** First... I Love the clothes.

That being said- I put in an order... PayPal still has hold- from March 4th... and I did not receive anything! So... I check, sent e-mail, called (they were closed?), received a response to contact... called. On hold for 11 minutes... No Way! Had to hang up...(only get 30 minutes for lunch)... received email, sent back email asking to just put the order through! Nope. Still. Call. Called again. Closed. Ugh...

Still have not received my order. Or the order I placed after that! Same things. Just not with the 90% off clearance price. And some items sold out.

Sorry Alloy... customer service is a HUGE deal to me and I am disappointed.

By the way... My order was for $96.00 and second order was $89.00! That, to me is a significant purchase and since I was a repeat customer I really expected better.

My subsequent e-mails have not found a way to an acceptable resolution and I put in a quick email to PayPal just recently...

I really, really just wanted my order though! I'm 5'11 and they sell Tall sizes!

I've worked retail and I understand things happen- I also believe the customer is NOT always right... but... they are always the customer!

YouTube The gold standard of online video hosting

YouTube is the biggest and most ubiquitous video sharing site on the internet available today. It's gotten to the point where there's no real way to compete with the site simply because it has enough money behind itself to always be improving itself.

The downside of YouTube being so ubiquitous is that it's almost impossible for there to be anyone competing with the site. It's just too expensive for anyone to really be doing that unless a major corporation decides to throw endless amounts of money at them.

Because of this and because there's always been issues with YouTube having to negotiate its way through the corporate hell of finding advertisers, the relationship between YouTube and the people who make a living from making content for the site has always seemed fraught. There's regularly some new scandal about a new YouTube policy or because they're enforcing the terms of service in a way people perceive as inconsistent, or because there's some issue with ad revenue.

I think YouTube's ubiquity kinda hurts it as well. Really the site's only recourse if an advertiser says there's too much offensive content on the site is to essentially say, "Sure, but at least we're not 4chan or a porn site." There's no option for them to say, "Yeah, but look at the company practices of this other site; this kind of thing is industry standard."

In terms of usability, YouTube is the gold standard of video hosting. There's probably never going to be another site that's quite as good as this one when it comes to ease of use. As much as people like to complain about the site being worse than ever before, I think in a lot of ways, it's much easier to use than it was in '08 or '09.

While the standards for what's considered monetisable content on YouTube has seemed to get stricter as the years have gone on, I think this is mostly because the site has grown more concerned over what's going to fly with advertisers as the years have gone on. As it stands right now though, there's still plenty of channels who are doing content about anything you can imagine and many are still able to find an audience.

YouTube The Problem with Youtube: Censorship, Advertising, and Lack of Transparency

Youtube used to be a great platform for uploading videos and sharing content with the world. However, over time, it has become more and more focused on making money through advertising. This has led to a shift in the type of content that is allowed on the site, with many creators feeling like they have to censor themselves in order to comply with the rules.

While there is nothing inherently wrong with companies and advertising, the problem arises when they start to dominate everything and make it difficult for creators to express themselves freely. This is especially true when it comes to political content, which can be demonetized or even removed altogether if it doesn't align with the views of the advertisers.

One solution to this problem would be to switch to a social funding model, where users pay a small fee to watch videos and the money is collected into a central pot. This would allow creators to be paid directly by their audience, rather than having to rely on advertisers who may not share their values.

Another issue with Youtube is the lack of transparency when it comes to demonetization. Creators often have no idea why their videos have been flagged, and there is no clear appeals process. This can be incredibly frustrating for those who have put a lot of time and effort into creating content, only to have it taken down without explanation.

Overall, while Youtube is still a popular platform, it has definitely lost some of its appeal in recent years. Many creators are looking for alternative sites where they can express themselves freely and without fear of censorship. While there are certainly challenges to creating a new platform, it is clear that there is a demand for a more open and transparent video sharing site.

YouTube Navigating YouTube's Copyright Claims: My Frustrating Experience

I gotta say, my experience with YouTube has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Let me tell you a story. So, a while back I wrote a book called Blood Lines Family Ties and in early 2017 I made a video to promote it. But then, not one, not two, but three different companies claimed that I had infringed on their copyrights. Can you believe it? I went through the whole YouTube process to dispute these claims, and it took months, but I ultimately won.

Fast forward to now, over a year and a half later, and another company has laid claim to my intellectual property on the same video. And, once again, I'm being called a liar and a thief. It's frustrating, to say the least. When I try to dispute these claims, YouTube does everything in their power to discourage me from taking action. They even threaten to remove my video or block my channel. But I'm not one to back down from a fight.

The real kicker for me is that I never get to see the other party's work that's supposedly in question. It's like they're hiding something from me. So, this time, I'm not playing by their rules. I've rallied my friends and followers on various sites to spread the word, and I even made another video. It's a good one, if I do say so myself. You can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7CTFJrJko8

But here's the thing: we should have the right to see the other party's material when ours comes into question. We shouldn't be made to feel like we'll be punished if we stand up for ourselves. If we want to be taken seriously by YouTube and Google, we need to stand together and have each other's backs. We may not have a lot of money, but together we can make a big wave.

I've even gone so far as to email 60 Minutes about my experience with YouTube. I encourage anyone else who's having issues to do the same. Together, we have a voice. Separately, we're mute.

All in all, YouTube can be a frustrating platform to navigate, especially when it comes to copyright claims. But I'm not giving up. I'll keep fighting for my rights as a content creator. And who knows? Maybe one day, YouTube will start taking us independents seriously.

Oh, and by the way, here's a picture of my book, in case you're interested.

YouTube YouTube's New Rules: Running Off Good Content Creators & Censoring Truth

I'm a content creator on several platforms, including YouTube. I've had six channels on YT alone in a year and a half with good success. However, I would never monetize on that platform as they are always screwing over the monetized channels, especially during the immediate lock downs in March 2020. I had a "Relaxing Music Videos" channel that they took down last year sometime. Really? Relaxing music videos were bad while there is porno all over the platform, child abuse, animal abuse, murders for hire, plans to kill a judge, etc.? I filed many reports via their worthless, no-action so-called reporting system. I work with a lot of government agencies, so I am not a "misinformation" fraud. YT themselves are. They delete any truth there is about this pandemic.

When I was in Studio a week ago to upload a video, which I have cut WAY back on & focused on more worthy platforms, a lot of new "rules" started this month. I was always responsible & marked my entire channel "not for kids" just to be safe. I even made 1 or 2 age-restricted videos per their "guidelines". They make us, the adults, constantly censor our content or they outright "remove" it. I keep asking them, "Did YouTube Kids get deleted? Is that why you're now imposing MORE rules for so-called kid-safety, so much so that the adults can't even use YT anymore?" I don't get it. Sure, I know about COPPA, I abide by the guidelines. But you know how doesn't? YT!

They have now changed it so that they can delete entire big channels that are monetized no matter how good they are. Any content creator who uses YT can go to Studio & read all about the new rules themselves. They are bs & they're running off the good content creators.

I was a Lab Assistant at LabCorp during the last SARS outbreak in 2004. I've worked with what they call "Covid" today. When I would post USDOJ lawsuit links against Pfizer & Johnson & Johnson for fraud, particularly in regards to marketing ploys & pharmacy kickbacks, they would get deleted. I don't know how sitejabbers works or if they require evidence, but I will put the links right here for anyone to verify.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wednesday, September 2,2009
Justice Department Announces Largest Health Care Fraud Settlement in Its History
Pfizer to Pay $2.3 Billion for Fraudulent Marketing
https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-department-announces-largest-health-care-fraud-settlement-its-history

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, November 4,2013
Johnson & Johnson To Pay More Than $2.2 Billion To Resolve Fraud And Misbranding Allegations
https://www.justice.gov/usao-edpa/pr/johnson-johnson-pay-more-22-billion-resolve-fraud-and-misbranding-allegations

I will just say here based on my clinical & government experience, why in the world would these 2 companies be allowed to create ANYTHING for this pandemic? It doesn't matter what my opinion is, you can see they've ALREADY been charged with fraud at least once.

YouTube needs to create another platform for adults & real news since they have now turned the current YT into a kid's platform, 500% censored & no more money-making for those who are trying to make a living on there. Thanks for reading!

YouTube The Importance of Freedom of Speech in the Age of Censorship: My Experience with Youtube and CNN

I recently had an experience with Youtube that left me feeling frustrated and confused. As someone who values freedom of speech and expression, I was shocked to find that my comments were being censored and my account was blocked. It all started when I commented on a CNN news program that presented a young girl as a CoVid 19 expert. I expressed my opinion, which was not particularly controversial or offensive, but within a couple of hours, I was blocked from commenting on CNN and from accessing my Youtube account.

As an educated and law-abiding citizen, I couldn't understand why I was being treated like a threat. I have licenses, degrees, and certifications in various fields, and I pay taxes and vote. Yet, I was being silenced for expressing my views. It's not just Youtube and CNN, but Google as well, who has not responded to my inquiries.

This experience has made me question the state of freedom of speech in our country. We have laws that are supposed to protect this fundamental right, but what happens when those laws only apply to certain groups or parties? What happens when the media, which claims to support freedom of expression, does the opposite? When freedom of expression is limited, we move closer to widespread repression, as we saw in the former Soviet Union.

The level of "news" today is also concerning. As Swedish writer Henning Mankell points out, we have never seen such a flow of information, yet people know so little. Everything is broken into fragments, and words are misused. CNN is a prime example of this, as they constantly repeat fragments to convince people of their views, no matter how corrupt they may be.

As George Orwell said, "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear." I hope that my party, the Democratic party, and its supporters at CNN, Youtube, and Google will no longer block freedom of speech because they don't want to hear what someone has to say. Let's uphold the values of freedom of speech and expression, and allow for open and honest discourse.

YouTube Navigating Youtube: A Guide to Safety and Creativity for Kids and Parents

Youtube is a site that has been around for a while now, and it's a place where people can upload and share their original videos. You can find all sorts of videos on Youtube, from concert footage to homemade movies, and everything in between. One of the great things about Youtube is that you can search for videos by subject, so if you're interested in dogs, for example, you can find videos featuring dogs.

However, there are some things to be aware of when using Youtube. For one thing, there is a lot of content on the site that may not be appropriate for all viewers. That's why Youtube now offers a Safety Mode feature that filters out objectionable content. This feature is opt-in, so you need to enable it on your browser if you want to use it. If you have a Youtube account, you can password protect Safety Mode so it always filters content. Youtube also displays TV ratings for the TV show clips it offers, so parents have a sense of the age-appropriateness of the video.

Despite these safety features, it's important to remember that no filter is 100% accurate. That's why it's important for parents to supervise their children's use of Youtube, and to talk to them about what they're watching. Youtube remains one of the most creative outlets on the Web, offering kids myriad ways to exercise their creativity.

One thing to keep in mind when using Youtube is that the content can run the gamut from the totally benign to the totally outrageous to the potentially harmful. The user-rating system is fairly trustworthy, though, so if lots of people pan something, it's probably not worth watching. If users give something a high rating, it's probably pretty good. However, the user ratings have nothing to do with age-appropriateness.

Another thing to be aware of is that although you can't automatically get to the adult videos without logging in, anyone can lie about their age and get an "adult" account. Most of the videos aren't pornographic, but some of the comments about the videos can be vulgar. Submitters are cautioned to refrain from showing personally identifiable information in their movies, or images that would help a stranger identify their locations.

Overall, Youtube is a great site for people who want to share their videos with the world. However, it's important to be aware of the potential risks and to take steps to protect yourself and your children when using the site. As with any site that offers user-generated content, it's viewer beware.

YouTube YouTube's Corporate Greed: A 1-Star Review of Poor Public Consumer Rights Enforcement

A few years ago, a college student named Chad Hurley was discussing the downsides of online video sites with some friends. This led to the birth of a new approach to online video, which combined it with social networking. In 2005, this idea became a reality and a new generation of online websites was born. YouTube was one of the most popular of these sites.

One of the great things about YouTube was that you could build your own page, host your own videos, and even become a YouTube partner to earn money. This led to thousands, then hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions of people logging in daily to the site. However, things have changed.

Today, the number of daily sign-ins is well under half of what it used to be, and it may not even be reaching 100 million anymore. This is a significant drop from the 2 billion people who used to log in daily in 2011. If any other corporate entity lost 1.5 billion customers, there would be consequences. However, YouTube is owned by Google Inc, and they seem to be immune to such losses.

Google Inc is chaired by Salar Kamanger, a devout Muslim who was born in Tehran, Iran in 1977. He was specifically recruited by Google Inc to help enforce restrictions of material access to all those in Arabic/Muslim countries. His job was so successful that he was promoted to undertake a much bigger and darker project: cleansing YouTube of all information sharing and spreading of "rumors" regarding the new world order global agenda.

He did this via a brand new interface at YouTube code named "Cosmic Panda". This permanently ended every social benefit and function at YouTube officially in February 2012 on what major account holders there refer to as F'D UP FRIDAY the 21st. You can no longer email anyone in-house at YouTube, have your own home page, or design your own profile. You can also no longer earn money unless you are a major corporate player.

In the past two years, everything has suddenly become for sale at YouTube: rights, profits, and control. For the everyday person, this means they are screwed. Even middle-sized players are getting screwed. In 2012, multiple rights lawsuits were filed in both the US Federal Court System and the World Court, all claiming stolen content, mass public fraud, identity theft, and other issues.

The US Federal Trade Commission was set to file many charges against YouTube LLC & Google Inc on these same grounds, but the White House intervened on the grounds it would be a bad public sign. This all underscores the fact that Barack Obama, despite being a man of diverse racial origin and despite him claiming to be a Democrat which have historically been the champion of public issue and rights, has overseen the worst public rights enforcement of any US president in the modern age.

Despite all of this, there are still some videos lurking around YouTube that go into details about this president and his anti-consumer/public war. They are there, but they are drowned out by all the commercial and agenda propaganda crap. Overall, I would give YouTube a 1-star rating because of the poor corporate behavior and lack of public consumer rights enforcement.

YouTube YouTube: A Great Platform with Flaws in Management and Moderation

This platform is a great place to share videos on a wide range of topics. With just a recording device, you can showcase your skills or highlight issues that matter to you. The platform also has a feature that allows you to control comments, which helps to keep trolls at bay. Unlike other sites like GameFAQs and TVTropes.org, YouTube has an administration that is not power-hungry, making it an excellent platform for expressing your voice. However, getting views and subscribers can be a challenge.

Unfortunately, there are two significant problems with YouTube that I must address. The first is the platform's unwillingness to listen to criticism when they establish rules that favor the rich. As a resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, I visited YouTube's headquarters on December 6, 2019, to raise concerns about my parents' house, which was in a terrible state, and the community's refusal to help fix it. However, my attempt was treated as a joke, creating an unwelcome atmosphere of fear. YouTube is supposed to address such issues, but they seem to care less about what happens in their own backyard.

The second issue is even worse. YouTube refuses to disincentivize proven bad guys like Mangs, who has confessed to rape and attempted to blame alcohol for it. He has also turned a pseudo-African character into an offensive African American stereotype, bashed the intelligence of Africans/African Americans, and named a custom item after a slur in a public stream. He has also encouraged catfighting with a "Mangs Points" system and mistreated women. Despite all this, YouTube has allowed him free reign of the algorithm, including monetization, even to present day. This is a sign of failure to manage due diligence that warrants the loss of two stars.

Another problem worth mentioning is that when a user gets blocked from another user's channel, their comments on the blocking user's videos get hidden from public view. This can happen for any reason, including declaring the target user "100% a troll." This is rather unfair, as it allows history to be held at the whims of the popular, no matter how wrong they are.

Despite these issues, YouTube is still a great platform for a variety of interests and shows signs of fairness. However, it suffers from a laissez-faire design that applies to key points where it shouldn't.

YouTube YouTube: A Solid Website with Some Downsides

I gotta say, I've been using YouTube for a while now and it's pretty cool. You can find all sorts of videos on there, from funny cat videos to educational stuff. It's a great way to kill time when you're bored or just need a break from work or school. Plus, it's free! Who doesn't love free stuff?

One thing I will say though, is that sometimes the ads can be annoying. Like, I get it, they need to make money somehow, but do they really need to interrupt my video every five minutes? And sometimes the ads are like, longer than the actual video I'm trying to watch. Come on, man.

But overall, I think YouTube is a pretty solid website. It's easy to navigate and find what you're looking for. And if you're into creating content, it's a great platform to share your stuff with the world. I've seen some really talented people on there, making all sorts of cool videos.

Of course, like any website, there are some downsides. I've heard stories of people getting their channels deleted for no reason, or having their videos demonetized. That's gotta suck, especially if you're trying to make a living off of your content. And there's always the risk of running into some not-so-great stuff on there, like hate speech or graphic content.

But overall, I think YouTube is a pretty cool website. It's not perfect, but what website is? As long as you use it responsibly and don't get sucked into a never-ending rabbit hole of cat videos (not that there's anything wrong with that), you should be good to go.

YouTube Is YouTube Premium Worth the Monthly Subscription?

YouTube is the biggest streaming service in the US and offers a wide range of educational and entertainment video content. With 30,000 hours of video uploaded every hour, YouTube has the ability to serve many different demographics. To enhance the user experience, YouTube offers a premium service called YouTube Premium. Although not all demographics on YouTube will benefit from the premium service, some find themselves in a situation where the cost of the service might be low enough to justify the monthly subscription.

YouTube Premium is worth the monthly subscription because of its services such as no ads, offline options, audio options, YouTube originals, and competitive pricing. Ad-free content is one of the most popular features of YouTube Premium. This feature is excellent for uninterrupted entertainment, and both the viewer and the content creator benefit from this exchange. The viewers don't get annoyed with constant ads, and a portion of the monthly subscription will be divided among the content creators you watched over the past month, which is a higher portion than if it was a regular ad view.

Another great feature YouTube Premium offers are the offline options. You can download up to one hundred of your favorite videos to watch later, including a few movies. This feature is great for flying, camping, or knowing internet service will be slacking or at all. Included in the YouTube algorithm is a downloaded playlist that is constantly updated with suggested videos in case you happen to forget to download or an unexpected loss of data occurs.

YouTube Premium members also get the luxury of audio options. Such luxuries are locking the phone screen and still receiving audio. Another is to change the setting to stream audio-only. This is huge because it saves on what consumes the most amount of data, video. YouTube is an excellent resource for music lovers. Every genre of music and most artists you can find. So YouTube catered to this market and created the YouTube Music app where these settings can be used best for music uploaded onto YouTube.

Yet another great feature of YouTube Premium is full access to YouTube originals. Subscribers can watch all available episodes in a series as soon as it premieres. They also get access to bonus content like deleted scenes and director's cuts. A lot of the content showcases some of YouTube's favorite content creators. Such as Pewdiepie. Although premium content isn't usually people's favorite subscription feature, it still adds more value to the service.

Last but not least, YouTube Premium has competitive pricing for the service it provides. There are three different plans available, with the standard plan costing $11.99 a month. There's also a more expensive family plan at $17.99. A special student plan at $6.99 is also available. There is no annual plan available. YouTube Premium is for people interested in educational and short videos and finds them self on YouTube often.

Although YouTube Premium is an excellent service, it's not necessarily meant for everyone. For people interested in long movies or watching actors do their job, a subscription to another developed streaming service would be recommended. YouTube Premium's exclusive content collection is fragile. There are few original series and programs compared to cheaper services, such as Netflix. In addition to a few options, the ones that exist there are not public or critical success. They are not sufficient reasons to justify the signature.

In conclusion, YouTube Premium is the perfect product for people that spend a lot of time on YouTube for leisure or educational purposes. The ability to listen when not watching and have uninterrupted content is ideal to have on your most viewed platform. From exclusive content to its competitive pricing, all aspects of the subscription makeup all members' premium services. The service is constantly updated and tends to only get better over time.

YouTube The Decline of YouTube: A Platform No Longer About Fun, But Profit and Restrictions

When YouTube first started in 2005, it was a whole different ball game compared to what it is today in 2021. Over the years, a lot has changed, but not necessarily for the better. Back in the day, YouTube was a place where people could have fun and enjoy themselves. Nowadays, it's all about money, profit, and advertisements. There's a total lack of creativity, unlike the good old times. Instead of promoting freedom of expression, YouTube has become obsessed with copyright and deleting comments that contain URLs linking to other sites. On some browsers, it's even impossible to reply properly to another user by name because of the total lack of an instant reply option altogether.

Posting hashtags in comments is also a big issue on YouTube these days. One can even get banned for spamming if they post too many hashtags or links in their comments! YouTube doesn't let users add links to other sites, even if many movies and TV shows are missing from YouTube, all due to copyright, as well as community guidelines. Some users tend to falsely tag their videos as suitable for children, although in fact, they're not, simply to avoid their videos being flooded with ads.

If you ask me, YouTube should ban all those users who only troll the site, uploading hours of nothing at all, hidden behind the fake title of some full movie. Two hours of absolutely nothing! What a total waste of time, not to mention the memory hosted on YouTube servers. There are so many trolls on YouTube these days, with so-called full movies that are nowhere to be found, all thanks to this ridiculous YouTube copyright policy. Also, the community guidelines make absolutely no sense these days. I'm under the impression that everything is unacceptable to post on YouTube these days! People get a lot of false copyright claims on their videos all the time from various music companies, or movie companies, or TV broadcasters, even those that nobody has ever heard of, such as the mysterious yet omnipresent Lasso Group, yet no one ever received a single strike on their account for trolling the site! Even if being reported for trolling, or spamming, by so many users, some spam or troll accounts on YouTube are never deleted! Go figure! Looks like YouTube doesn't care much about trolls and spammers anymore!

The comment section is the worst! People use it to post negative comments all the time, and to spam the site with some of the most absurd comments you can imagine! Some of them even re-post the same comment multiple times, without any repercussions from YouTube whatsoever! Although it's against the general rules of YouTube, many users post comments only to hurt other people, or to make someone look bad. Comments keep disappearing all the time, for no apparent reason, much like the likes that one gets for their positive comments. YouTube obviously doesn't want people to interact with each other on the platform, afraid that it might become a social media, instead of just a video sharing platform! That's why replying to somebody's comment is being heavily discouraged by YouTube itself.

Personally, I think YouTube is already a global social media, and a perfect replacement for a defunct Google Plus, and I'm not the only one who thinks so. The site allows users to upload public executions, torture, and other gore content, yet for some reason, any sexually explicit content gets deleted immediately! YouTube is a very cold and hostile place now. There's no fun on YouTube anymore. Everyone only cares about the money these days!

YouTube is discriminating against all those small channels with less than 1000 subscribers because one can't even start a new poll on YouTube these days unless they already have 1000 subscribers to the channel. Additionally, the subscriber count on some YouTube channels may vary significantly from day to day. One could lose plenty of subscribers literally overnight, all due to a single video, or some difference of opinion posted in the form of a comment! Also, YouTube keeps decreasing the total subscriber count by removing a lot of users without any channel content whatsoever from the list of subscribers. Meaning one can no longer know for sure just how many subscribers they may have this time tomorrow. Many users only subscribe to some channels only to downvote the videos and to post negative comments.

What can one say about all sorts of phobia existing on YouTube these days, or this constant clash of opinion between the opposite political views?! Even the most absurd things can occur, such as massive dislike of certain videos, like some Christmas carol, for example, from users who don't share the same belief system. Why else would someone ever be listening to a Christmas carol, unless they're actually Christians themselves?!? People nowadays use this YouTube comment section for personal insults and for posting a lot of very offensive comments full of hate speech against other religions, nations, countries, or even someone's political views, race, gender, or sexual orientation. That's not acceptable on any site, especially not on YouTube!

On top of all that, YouTube is full of unwanted and completely unrelated ads. Way too many ads, if you ask me! Sometimes, the ads altogether are even longer than the video itself! One has to pay extra to get the YouTube Premium, so they could get rid of all those annoying ads! It's almost impossible these days for any small creator to ever reach the number of 100 subscribers, much less the 1000 required for monetization.

Basically, YouTube became a synonym for Vevo, with some of the biggest channels out there designed only for some online streaming, as well as running personal vlogs, yet the average creator on YouTube is completely helpless and left outside altogether. How can anyone make a fanvid these days when all the music, as well as pictures, or videos, is already copyright?!? Fanvids without music have absolutely no sense. Music is the key element of every single fanvid. I remember the time when users could make a remake of some popular song, and then the video would go viral in the matter of hours. Today, making such a remake would only result in getting a copyright strike, or even a channel deletion! Not all users can afford to pay the enormous royalty fees to some copyright owners just so they can upload some full movie, music video, or some full episode of a sitcom, or some other TV show. That's why you won't find any of those on YouTube, so may I suggest that you go and find it yourself someplace else. None of the most popular TV shows, or any blockbuster movie is available on YouTube! To watch it, one has to look for it elsewhere.

YouTube was supposed to be a place of fun, not profit, but most users only care about the money! Search results and suggestions often show only the videos from some big channels. The other huge problem on YouTube is the YouTube app, especially the mobile one, which is no match to Google's high standards, although Google actually owns YouTube now. They should make more effort to create a much better YouTube app for everyone.

YouTube should finally do something about all those problems mentioned in this review. Getting an email on which one can actually reach YouTube personnel, instead of some bot, would be a good start. Let me remind you that so far there's no way to send a simple message or a complaint to YouTube directly. For a global platform such as YouTube, it's a big disadvantage these days. Speaking of a global site, most users are unaware that the majority of uploaded content is literally unavailable worldwide, due to YouTube copyright policy, as well as this whole YouTube region restriction. Some content is unavailable in certain countries, while some videos may even be blocked all over the world! That's not how a global site should look like! When one uploads something to YouTube, they expect it to be visible to everyone, all around the globe, which is not always the case. Sometimes, two copyright holders are in dispute, so one could get a copyright claim from both parties involved, making it impossible to upload certain music videos, movies, or TV shows!

What YouTube needs right now are some Vevo-like channels made by all those major movie companies to upload their own products: full movies, and full episodes of all sitcoms and other TV shows for people to watch for free. There's not so many full movies you can find on YouTube, and finding some full episode of some TV show, or some sitcom, is literally mission impossible, because of YouTube copyright policy which makes no sense to anybody, much like those very confusing community guidelines.

My conclusion is quite simple: YouTube needs some improvement soon, or more users would quit the site and go someplace else, to some other similar site with less confusing ground rules and simply absurd guidelines, and without any more obstacles in expanding the boundaries of one's creativity.

YouTube Again with the sex advertising!

Open YouTube and immediately confronted with a sexual advertisement! Get rid of it or I will throw it on Twitter!

Many many times YouTube places sex advertising. After complaints they remove it and start again after a while. It's offensive! They accuse you of watching sexual content on YouTube?! If this is possible this medium is legally forbidden in Europe. We do not want to emulate leftist Americans!

Desired outcome: Remove sex advertising!

YouTube billing

We cancelled YouTubeTV on Oct 24 but they then billed us thru Nov 14. At the same time they discontinued the service as of Oct 24. It is impermissible to charge for a service that is discontinued.

Seems like the above is adequate. Address is 42778 Larry Lee Lane, Murray Weber, [protected]

YouTube earns a trustworthiness rating of 91%

Highly recommended, but caution will not hurt.

Our conclusion: After a detailed review, ComplaintsBoard finds YouTube to be a trustworthy company. Although there's a 2% resolution rate for customer complaints, which deserves attention, YouTube is known for their high standards and safety. If you're thinking about dealing with YouTube, it's wise to check how they handle complaints.

We found clear and detailed contact information for YouTube. The company provides a physical address, 4 phone numbers, and email, as well as 3 social media accounts. This demonstrates a commitment to customer service and transparency, which is a positive sign for building trust with customers.

Youtube.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

Youtube.com has been deemed safe to visit, as it is protected by a cloud-based cybersecurity solution that uses the Domain Name System (DNS) to help protect networks from online threats.

Youtube.com you are considering visiting, which is associated with YouTube, is very old. Longevity often suggests that a website has consistently provided valuable content, products, or services over the years and has maintained a stable user base and a sustained online presence. This could be an indication of a very positive reputation.

YouTube's website appears to be focused on art and entertainment. While this can be a great source for finding creative inspiration, it's important to verify the legitimacy of the site and its content before investing time or money. However, it's important to take the time to research the site and verify its legitimacy before making any purchases or investments.

Adult content may be available on youtube.com. It is important to be aware of potential risks and to use caution when accessing or engaging with such content.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While YouTube has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 2% of 1219 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • YouTube protects their ownership data, a common and legal practice. However, from our perspective, this lack of transparency can impede trust and accountability, which are essential for establishing a credible and respected business entity.

YouTube youtubetv

No matter where I go and how hard I try to just use my yahoo email address to sign up for YouTubetv, the system secretly searches for a google related email address on the computer/laptop/hotel computer or whatever device that I am using, and will force that address on as my new service email. It ia the largest invasion of privacy i have witnessed.

I have talked to 3 different youtubetv CSR and each one cannot believe what I am saying and since they are foreign based/born, find it easier to hang up on me instead of finding a technical solution to my problem.

In reality the solution is easy, stay on the line with me, establish new service with me on the line using my email address of choice and then cancel my old service that uses the unwanted email.

I wish I could rely on Google / Youtube to assist but sadly I am reading that this is their very downfall. [protected] robert

Claimed loss: several hours of activation troubleshooting along with 3 hrs of realtime loss talking to reps from India/Bangladesh who hang up on me ...despite my courtesy of desperately working to bridge the communications gap.

Desired outcome: Someone to add my account manually (even with me on the phone or online with them) using my yahoo email, and then deleting the old account that grabed the wrongful email account.

on 10-28-2023

At 26181 Buscador, Mission Viejo, ca 92692. They're making issues out of no reason.

I made a report. I did nothing wrong and it seems they are trying to tell me that I am not allowed to speak to those people on YouTube or they're trying to tell me that they can see me on the computer and being disgusting like preventing me from getting help.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The phone line is still off.

I have an issue; the neighbors next door may have a machine that reads my mind; if it exists or maybe hacking into my computer to see what I am doing and being disgusting. They plus the police may be preventing me from getting help.

I still did not get help since 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 and still.

Could you charge them / jail / the death penalty to die to stop this please and they have my dog / Shiba Inu / Kai too, could I get him back please and the money that was stolen from me too? This needs to stop please.

I don't know who they are at all. None.

The son said he put my name for taxes. But I am not sure. Is it the parents that are putting my name for taxes to get money?

I email: Ryan Reynolds and Wentworth Miller.

Ryan blocked me on YouTube and the neighbor next door invited Children over and made loud noises. I think it is a set up for that game to steal from me , lie about me, not wanting to get caught, not wanting to pay up, not wanting to owe. They may be reading something too.

Could you help me please. They think they can abuse me and my rights. They are fully misinformed to attack me by that neighbor next door.

Why are kids saying I care? ( The kids are next door to me and I put like a care bear.)

What are they seeing next door please?

I sent this to three people.

Care

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVjvHY111lU

If they are looking into my computer. Why?

It is none of their business. That family does nothing but abuse me with that game and make me hear it outside their backyard.

Can you get the police please right away there trying to take my rights away?

They were also trying to get me out of own home.

What did they steal from me? If they did; could you please mail it to Diana Sanson 26175 Buscador Mission Viejo, CA 92692.

They also have my dog / Shiba Inu / Kai and I don't get why? It is my dog.

AT 26181 Buscador, Mission Viejo, ca 92692.

There lying and making me look incorrect that I did something wrong, when never. It's all their fault. I am still stuck and unable to do much, but click on the sweepstakes.

They need to apologize

With that game I have heard from other people saying Ryan Reynolds was stalking me. Not meaning not the neighbor next door. I am not stalking and not a fan.

-----------------------------

I sometimes hear planes over the home.

I hear now the neighbor next door with children outside in the backyard.

Is there a reason for everything and even what I hear?

---------------------------------------------

It really doesn't bother me with outside with children.

What bothers me is they kept messing with me with the game to hear something outside in their backyard. That female and son are unwell how they can treat someone that they never knew and still.

I don't have children and I am fine with that.

I don't know who they are so it doesn't bother me.

What bothers me is that they have my dog / Shiba Inu / Kai and are messing with me with a game to tell me that they stolen from me and lie about me. So I don't like bad people getting away with anything and having another day as they are not learning what they are doing wrong at all. I have told the police and that I want my dog / Shiba Inu / Kai back. Not sure. Nothing, but ignores and still.

Diana Sanson

26175 Buscador

Mission Viejo, CA 92692

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Could I get their address of Ryan Reynolds and Wentworth Miller please?

I am not a fan. All they do is ignore though, but they wanted to see me and they did, but it's like kidnapping, rooms, Walmart, might have been young too, when parents were there. David Sanson and Mieko Sanson.

These people are unwell and creating lies to make me look incorrect again.

Can this be fixed and charge them / neighbor next door please as they don't know what they are talking about? That neighbor Next door is out of line and messing with a game to steal from me and lie.

I made a report and tell the police; but these people are unwell.

Their / neighbor next door are playing that game and having actual kids involved. They're teaching them the wrong thing and their kids. I don't get it at all. What is it for? Their unwell, why don't they leave me alone. Why can't I comment on the YouTube? I am bored. I am stuck and my older sister, niece, attorneys, sweepstakes / Publishers Clearing House cause it for me to be this stuck in this situations for years for no reason and still. The police, randoms, neighbors next doors have mess with me with that game too.

When do I get to be ok and happy? And the bad people go to jail and the death penalty to die? They think their lies can not make them not get in trouble and making me look incorrect to misinforming people of the truth. They think by lying that they think I won't get help.

I am stuck and that poor and they all caused it.

YouTube YouTube TV streaming

My recorded shows are stopping before the show is over! I am missing the ending of several recordings. Very frustrating. I don’t know if the timing is off when the show is on due to other programming, but it’s happening way too often for that to be the case in my opinion. Just now, Homicide For The Holidays Season 5 Episode 3 shows that it is 1:01:06 long. So obviously the last 1:06 isn’t recording.

Desired outcome: Make sure a recording is one hour only even if you have to delete or shorten a commercial!!

YouTube YouTube Channel - UA Light

Dear Concern,

My YouTube channel is UA light, which was started in Feb, 23. Till i have 1k subscribers, my channel was growing well, soon after completing 1K , the subscribers are automatically stopped. Morever, I have just noticed that videos I am uploading, the views are decreasing...which means yesterday in my new video on Radha Krishna my views were 142 (as attached) and today it is 107 (as attached)...I agree, subscribers can decrease, likes can also be decreased by how come views decreasing...this happens with my last video also...would request you to look into this..

Regards,

Archana

U A LIGHT

I have tried to contact you tube customer services but have been unable to find any contact .I do find it frustrating that they don't have any contacts and that is rather unusual too.I have reported quite a few and rather shocking videos that can cause a lot of harm as well as the spread of disinformation and hate speech over the internet and in public...

YouTube False accusations!!

Since Google bought Youtube, and then Google allowed the Chinese government to buy into the company and pretty much took it over... YouTube isn't what it once was.

YouTube now panders to demographics that pander to the lowbrow, the diseased, the mentally deranged, and the filthy degenerates of society. Nasty, vulgar, offensive launguage is now "normal" everyday verbage for these channels and "creators", because they rake in the views because of their harassment, verbal assaults, and vulgar lifestyles and speech... so YouTube literally lets them get away with murder.

And yet, the clean, safe, and decent channels get assaulted by YouTube, having their channels hidden, having their numbers of followers deleted, and being hit with "bans" for being "offensive", when they've done nothing of the sort!

This goes for VIEWERS as well! I've seen some comments from some viewers that are nothing more than hatemongering, vicious, vile, depsicable, and rampantly diseased...INCLUDING death threats! And yet, YouTube does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO THESE VIEWERS!

IN the past two months, I've been "hit" with THREE YouTube "warnings" telling me I can be BANNED because of my harassing comments! And yet, they cannot PROVE to me what comments these are, or WHO they are harassing! I just get a warning popup while I'm watching something, with YouTube HARASSING ME with these LIES! Not ONCE have they given me a screenshot or any kind of PROOF of what they are accusing me of!

The Chinese government IS in control of Americas media resources. If you do your research, you will find out for yourself. BE WARNED, they do NOT want free speech online in this country, and they don't want anybody saying anything that doesn't hold to the Communist governments way of thinking!

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Desired outcome: Straighten up or suffer the consequences of Bud Light, General Mills, Twitter, and many other long lived conglomerates that finally had to pay the price for their corruption and traitorism.

YouTube YouTube Video Viewing Interruptions

While watching videos on YouTube (mostly rebroadcasts of conservative news programs and podcasts) our viewing is abruptly terminated and replaced with amateur video footage of Asian people preparing food and a variety of other tasks. The video footage is of unknown origin, but always shows Asian people doing various tasks. It feels like some entity is hijacking my viewing of certain programs they don't like, and replacing them with homegrown videos. The situation started at least 5-6 months ago and has increased in frequency to the point that it now happens every couple days. This is extremely annoying and nefarious in my opinion. Please try to resolve this situation soonest.

Desired outcome: What I would like to see is an end to the current disruptions in my viewing service, e.g., the uninterrupted viewing of programming that I choose to watch.

About YouTube

Screenshot YouTube
YouTube is a video sharing platform that has revolutionized the way people consume and share video content. It was founded in 2005 by three former PayPal employees and was later acquired by Google in 2006. Since then, it has grown to become the second largest search engine in the world, with over 2 billion monthly active users.

The platform allows users to upload, share, and view videos on a wide range of topics, from music and entertainment to education and DIY tutorials. It has become a hub for creators, influencers, and brands to connect with their audiences and build communities around their content.

One of the key features of YouTube is its algorithm, which uses machine learning to recommend videos to users based on their viewing history and interests. This has made it easier for users to discover new content and for creators to reach new audiences.

YouTube has also become a major source of revenue for creators, with the platform offering various monetization options such as ads, sponsorships, and merchandise sales. This has led to the rise of a new generation of content creators who have turned their passion into a full-time career.

In recent years, YouTube has faced criticism for its handling of controversial content and its impact on mental health and well-being. However, the platform has taken steps to address these issues, such as implementing stricter community guidelines and providing resources for users to manage their screen time.

Overall, YouTube has had a profound impact on the way we consume and share video content, and it continues to be a major player in the digital landscape.
