Hey YouTube and Facebook - time to stop burying the good stuff with wall-to-wall bullshit In: Cameras Posted January 8, 2018 On 1/6/2018 at 2:58 PM, EthanAlexander said: I work full time in marketing at a company that sells 90% online and I can tell you that YT and FB are perfectly oiled machines that serve consumers exactly what they want to see. That's why they are worth billions. Youtube being worth "billions" is questionable. They've lost money for years. I think they may be in the neighborhood of breakeven at the moment. A lot of businesses are more profitable than Youtube with a fraction of the awfulness. 48 minutes ago, AaronChicago said: The only way to stop all of the shit is to not participate. Teach younger kids to find more substantive content. I've been off of Facebook for 4 years now and it feels good! There are at least two problems with that. The first is keeping your child off of Youtube and Facebook is going to be a tough struggle and turn them into an outcast. The second is you will deprive them of the good content on Youtube... There is no good content on Facebook. I've been off of Facebook for years. It is terrible. Everyone just gossiping and showing off while corporations harvest your data. And I don't even want to get into the Russia stuff so as not to trigger anyone. Just a terrible cesspool. I don't have any children, that god, but if I ever do I'm dreading dealing with their internet usage.
