  • 3. Things that are popular on Youtube
    Every so often, videos will go viral on Youtube
    http://youtu.be/he5fpsmH_2g
    But there’s more to Youtube than talking animals, cute babies, Rick Rolling, lip-syncing, and 13-year-old pop stars
  • 4. Youtube Celebrities
    Youtube has introduced the
    world to a new form of celebrity
    status
    Vloggers, comedians and
    musicians getting more hits than
    Hollywood music videos
    (http://www.news.com.au/technology/meet-youtubes-224-million-girl-natalie-tran/story-e6frfro0-1225843291213)
    Famous for raw talent and people like them for who they are

    Able to showcase their art, different sides of themselves
    Ex. David So, Mitchell Davis
    Make a living
  • 6. The Youtube Community
    Millions people interacting everyday
    Many Youtube celebrities based in LA
    Often collaborate with one another, form friendships
    ISA/Vidcon(http://articles.latimes.com/2010/jul/10/business/la-fi-ct-youtube-20100710)
    “Youtube Mecca”
    “We meet, talk, share ideas. We’re all friends” -iJustine
    Not only community of video-makers but viewers are also involved
    Video responses, interactive videos, meet-and-greets
  • 7. Pros and Cons of Youtube
    Pros
    Resource for learning, you can find almost anything!
    Youtube celebrities more real, allows people to follow passion
    Communicating and connecting people in ways not possible before, more than just videos on a site
    Better form of communication than just text
    Cons
    Youtube negativity, trolling etc.
    Not a real community, in the end, still through a screen
    Allowing people to “edit themselves”
    Time consuming and not always productive
    Have to filter through what you watch
  • 8. Opinion/Conclusion?
    Like everything else, there’s a lot of good on Youtube but it comes with bad things too
    Good way to get away from glamourized media but also easy to get caught up in it
    Youtube’s grown from a simple video website to something people can make money off of
    Advertising on the site now
    We’ll see what it grows into in the future
