    So I was watching this superb movie called Downfall about the fall of Nazis and it make think about the downfall of youtube. Yes, I'm comparing youtube to nazis because of the way they try to control everything. I mean come on they take all of the possible info on you as they can collect. I feel like their next step will be placing a surveillance camera in your house to "verify you're not an automated system"

    But anyway, I did a lot of marketing on mypace for years making thousands of dollars a month. That lasted for about 3 years, but this month it's like 40$ so far. lol myspace is absolutely dead and I'd never have guessed it would die off this quick. Today thanks to yt I can keep up with the lifestyle I created.

    So my question is when do you think yt will be in the same place as myspace today? Will it ever get there? Thoughts?

    Everything is saturation. More people have come on board. The best thing is not to depend on one income method.

    Nothing lasts forever, make as much as you can when you can, and always research other methods of marketing/money making so you have something to lean back on!

    I'd rather compare facebook than youtube, facebook asks you all sorts of verifications and knows a lot more your personal info than youtube.

    Luckily most of them don't have the patience to build a solid foundation for their business.
    When the results aren't instant they move on to the next "golden method"...:D

    Yeah, what are you on mate? As long as you're not on the top of the game, it doesn't mean it's the "downfall" of anything... I still make a good load from YouTube - daily.

    hmm lets see the 2nd or 3rd most popular web site online for now and no sign of it losing out? you can sit and count the dots on the wall for youtube to go down and unlike the nazis youtube hasn't invaded any countries or go to war with the world.:rolleyes:

    I dunno abt YT, it's not only about the site itself that's already so popular... It's also google owning them.

    No matter what you're looking for on google chances are you'll get one or more YT videos on the 1st page of the most used search tool on the internet... Therefore any competitor in the video business is gonna have a really difficult time to launch something as successful. I strongly believe it'll take way longer than myspace to fall...

    When I started working on myspace almost 4 years ago it was on top of the world (in top 5 worldwide most visited site). Today its at #80. I thought I was going to ride the myspace ride for at least 10 years. wrong

    its amazing how quickly everything crumbled for them and i was just wondering how long it will take youtube to fall the same.

    youtube is very innovative. myspace was not. youtube has millions in funds backing it and i only see it expanding, not collapsing.

    This Youtube whining shit never ends....

    YT provides free videos for entertainment/education as well as free advertising for us webmasters.


    What more do you want?

    "They show ads on my videos!! wah!"

    "SMS verification??? WAH!"

    "They took down my video that I STOLE from a major movie company/Record label/ someone elses channel! WAH!!!!"

    "They have all my info! WAH" (WHAT GOOD IS YOUR BROKE ASS INFO WORTH??? A PHONE NUMBER AND A NAME? FUCK OFF)

    Like these companies sole objective is trying to please 13 yr kids hahah.

    Tell me...What projects are you working on to help people that will give them millions of hours of entertainment and free advertising?...or are you just trying to make a buck for yourself?

    I have 2 things to say people who have a "problem" with Youtube:

    1. YOUR DOING IT WRONG.

    2. SHUT THE FUCK UP.
