My pet hates on you tube:

1. Unskippable ads that go on forever. - Does anyone really watch these things?
2. The way after you do a search and the thumbnails come up - just about to click on a video and they drop down and a couple of ads come on top. So you miss clicking on the video and click on a stupid ad instead.
3. On some videos you get text boxes full of rubbish and cover most of the video.
4. There is an error loading this video - please try again later

The best thing about YouTube is that absolutely anybody can make a video and put it on the internet for everybody to see.

That is extremely annoying, especially when it's blatently obvious the video is from your country.

A lot of Channel 4 ones aren't available in the UK (last time I checked, it's been a while) even though it's a bloody TV channel.

This! cool.gif

Some more:

5. Comments of people begging for subscribers/views with the 'I am a 15 year old singer-songwriter from blah blah' comments
6. The amount of fake videos people upload when you are looking for songs to listen too
7. 'Youtube famous singers' who butcher your favourite songs (Edit: Miranda is an exception wub.gif)
8. The same ad that is played on every video laugh.gif

These are seriously minor niggles. The only serious problem YouTube has is the fact that it's comment section is inhabited by people that make Michael and Common Sense look like f***ing Mensa members and industry powerhouses.

Never used to be like that. I think the change over was a year ago. They allowed you to merge your youtube account with existing google accounts like Gmail if you had one.

I think the awful comments are definitely one of the worst things about YouTube (and social media in general). There are some deeply insecure and bored people in this world, whose only outlet for it is to intimidate and bully people online whilst hiding behind a pseudonym.

Second to that,

Oh yes the comments too drama.gif literally every female artists is either "copying lady Gaga" (I've even seen that on classic Madonna videos :/) or they are a "f***ing bitch". And then there's like extremist Christians or whatever who say every popular artist is "satanic", and then just general idiots.

Oh yes the comments don't half get on my nerves sometimes! SUCH nonsensical drivel in there sometimes, people hate for the sake of hating most of the time (without managing to spell said 'insult' correctly) without providing constructive criticism. ALSO, tired jokes in the comments - HOW do people still find stuff like 'Justin Bieber is a girl' funny??

Also, I do quite like some YouTubers (like ThatcherJoe and his sister Zoella for her helpful beauty stuff) but some of them get on my nerves with the way they carry themselves sometimes. Technically they ARE famous because they have huge followings, but sometimes they come across so awkward/try-hard for views just CALM DOWN.

Oh and the less said about that Fred thing the better.

Apart from that I adore YouTube, one of my most used sites since about 2006.
