Atleast im Not Alone…

So, I was looking through my videos, checking out the # of views and, I noticed the video reply had gotten alot of views since I uploaded it. It turns out, that im not alone… You might have heard of this new one man campaign to get on the front page, its CanYouTubeHearMe?. His name is Brandon, he got so fed up trying to contact the editors at YouTube to get featured that he decided to march down to the YouTube offices and have a talk with the Editorial Team.

It’s a deliberate strategy from YouTube. If they only feature quality videos, they might scare ordinary people from putting up videos. And that’s what YouTube want. They want as many videos as possible. Also the crappy (thou cute) dog-video. They don’t really care about the quality, they care abut quantity. Thats how you make money, and that’s the goal here. Remember that. In the end, it’s all about the bottom line (when it come to business).

Now this makes sense. Ive never seen a video from DigitilSoul or Mr.Safety on the Homepage.  And if this where true, it would make some good video makers pretty mad, well I know I would…
