If you don’t know what YouTube is, then chances are you live under a nice big spacious ROCK. I used to visit YouTube solely for my fix of cute kitten videos or looking up a music video from my childhood when the tune got stuck in my head (commonly an old Britney or other teenybopper one-hit-wonder). These days though, YouTube is much more than that and I believe it will take over the world someday.
Have you spent time on YouTube lately? And by spend time, I mean actually spend time – not just looking at a cute baby laughing at the sound of paper ripping. These days, people are using YouTube as a way to launch themselves as a brand, produce content that real TV would never approve of, and do their own thing to make it big in the reality fame club. Reality TV is the exact opposite of that (meaning, not real at all) so people are sticking to YouTube, where they can produce whatever they want, post it, and gain attention. They can produce short scripted videos, documentary style snippits , or vlogs (video blogs/diaries) of their lives – some do it on the daily – and not have to worry about the production company cutting stuff out prior to air. It’s a freedom we didn’t always have but now that it’s here, it’s not going anywhere!
