Advantages: Best Website To Kill Time On The Internet
Disadvantages: Junk Videos
What would i do without youtube, it's the most entertaining and possibly my favourite place to kill the time on the internet!. I have been a massive fan of youtube since its early days and have always watched my favourite videos such as the simpsons and many friends episodes i miss. Youtube is like my best friend =]. It is so easy to use and with its layout it is easy to navigate to different content of videos.
Uploading videos. Youtube used to be so slow on uploading videos in the past and it used to take me hours on end. Youtube has now updated it's servers and I recently put a video on youtube and was fascinated on how fast it uploaded, it was done in under two minutes which is incredibly fast. The servers are highly tech than it was before. You can upload any kind of video but it has to remain clean and not abusive, such videos include happy slapping etc. Usually if you upload these kind of videos they are immediatley flagged down and removed from the site.
Privacy on your videos. If you decide you want to keep your videos private you can do so and block people from embedding videos on their website etc. I usually use this setting when i have some family videos that i want to upload on to youtube.
Viewing Videos. Recently youtube updated the player and now has a clean design which looks nice. You can watch videos ranging from cartoons, comedy and some just plain silly. I usually watch comedy videos and anything that catches my eye. I recently watched a video of the worlds fastest clapper it was just weird!. Many videos are rated for over 18s and you need an account with youtube to view the video, i think this is silly as anyone under the age of 18 can sign up and watch the videos. Many videos contain pornographic material and kids can easily access by signing up. Youtube contains every video you can ever imagine, you can learn new stuff like how to mend your car, fixing your broken phone which is really uselful for some people.
Junk videos. Besides all the great videos, i have to point out that there is an overwhelming amount of junk videos that are uploaded on youtube everyday and it just spoils the videos that are entertaining and funny.
Overall Youtube offers hours of entertainment when your bored on a rainy day. =]
Thanks for reading
