Top and Best Platform for Video sharing and Steaming

YouTube experience was amazing, from uploading new videos to live streaming. It help companies to reach wider audience for their specific niche. Live streaming is like free Webinars, just sharing the link is enough, customers or audience are very familiar with how YouTube works, so it helped us a lot to save time for explaining things like how to join, which platform to join, how to interact with streaming person and more. User experience was just top notch, everything works smoothly with no issues.

PROS

YouTube is an excellent platform for both large Firms and small creators, to showcase their new or unique ideas to ever increasing audience. YouTube has so much userbase, that videos easily gets large amount of views. To meet this requirement their are also a wide variety of consistent YouTube creators who fullfill all the searches in YouTube. Businesses have been getting many customers from running Ads in YouTube. More the audience or views, more will the chances of getting leads or sales. One of the biggest advantage is YouTube is free. If I continue to explain more the list will be too much, So I would suggest whoever thinking about getting into YouTube either for business or as a creator to go for it, since it's free and versatile.

CONS

Their is nothing I don't like about YouTube. Didn't got any issues while using it.

Reasons for switching to YouTube

YouTube was free and everyone knew about it. It was Easy get more audience with YouTube.

My experience with YouTube

PROS

YouTube is an amazing free platform to start sharing your content with the world. There is no cost to upload videos, and it is very accessible. They pay your channel ad revenue after you reach 1000 subscribers to add a little incentive to your content creation. It is also an amazing platform to watch content and share fun videos with your friends!

CONS

YouTube does have some pretty strict copyright bots and will strike down any video with about 5 seconds of a copyrighted song.

Loving YouTube news

PROS

Normally, the YouTube service has been growing and has been greatly improved on several platforms that I use. For me, Shorts has been the best invention of YouTube, fast videos, easy handling and functionalities. I really like the automatic adaptation of the video quality according to the user's connection.

CONS

Look at the excess of ads in a single video, for example, it is something that is very annoying in the free version. And the app on Smart TV needs a little more attention, they are quite unstable.

YouTube - Not bad for a monopoly

I have a love/hate relationship with YouTube because I consume so much content there but at the same time I am disgusted by what it has become

PROS

It is very easy to sign up and upload a video to youtube, and in theory you have access to a ton of people

CONS

Depending on the type of content you are creating it can be hard to be seen. The algorithm favors the lowest common denominator, so if you arent pranking people in public or radicalizing people, you don't end up in the trending section
