YouTube has provided millions of people with a means of reaching out to others and building connections. Sharing a viewpoint on any topic or hobby has enabled these users to build an understanding in ways that were never before possible. When a person gets on YouTube to create videos, it allows them to spread their views and begin securing a following online.
YouTube has also enabled video makers to enjoy financial profits as a result of the videos they place online. Previously, these videos assigned a financial value based on the amount of views they resulted in. However, this is a practice that needs to be altered because of the fact that many people are making low quality videos. A video that is short in duration may only cover a small aspect of the topic. However, this is currently done in order to increase views and make more money as a result.
