    Why struggle with IM when you can create YouTube clickbait that kids will watch..

    These clickbait YouTube kids have cracked the code and are making bank.. Just install socialblade and check their channel stats..

    It's kinda the same as that ELSA & SPIDERMAN craze

    Yeah, a lot of these people "aren't all there", if you catch my drift.

    Some of these guys have taken things a bit too far by introducing BS YouTube currencies related to their channel that dumb kids can buy with their parent's money and gamble away on nonsense.

    Then you have the people who take all of this way further than anyone should...

    Lol that's so messed up. It's one thing when it's other kids clickbaiting other kids such as a dude called DURV (who got banned from youtube after like a year of making $50,000+ monthly at like 13 years old) & another one called MORGZ who's still going strong, but when this grown dude is scamming kids is so fucked up lol..

    Hopefully there's no kids watching 8 weeks of video in their mums basement

    The initial boost traffic for kids is the hard part of this method. because of the competition going on

    Yep, that's how YouTube vids work these days. It's all about clickbait and nonsensical titles. PewDiePie does it very well, which is how he manages to stay on top with over 15.5b total views. Remember back in December when he trolled the internet into thinking he's going to delete his main account? Thanks to the publicity, he gained another 5m subs in 6 months.

    Here's how the video looks -


    30m views for this troll vid, lol.​

    Not really on topic, but this meme is also something I see on YouTube often.

    I find YouTube extremely toxic these days. No actual information, only "wannabe" future celebrities sharing their stupidity or arguing with everybody over views/likes/subscribes. It's gone nuts over the last year :| I get some of the "vloggers" in the trending section and watch sometimes and I am amazed by the level of stupidity the audience needs to watch that vid :|

    Depends what you enjoy. I think YouTube began to improve sometime in 2011/12. The quality of the videos went up. I never was a fan of vlogs and commentary vids. I prefer EDM music channels, certain Parody/Cringe channels and Blind Let's Plays. Popular channels were kinda lame to begin with. Don't really have a favorite channel because they all have their weak spots.

    I'm most impressed with people who are into Engineering and/or Gardening.


    Half-Life 2 gravity gun when?


    That's some 2001: A Space Odyssey mysticism going on, lol.​

    Nothing wrong with scamming kids, it's character building.
