Today i felt talking about a heavier
subject, which is opinions on what youtube and youtubers are and what they need
to be. I would like to point out that if you don't share the same opinion you
are of cause allowed to read and comment but please keep it civilized :)
My first point is that i believe
that the whole essence of YouTube (youtubers) is that it is "normal"
people communicating with "normal" people. So the other side of the
coin is that they aren't supposed to be idolized not that i don't think that
they should be famous and get books published and being on the front cover of
magazines I just believe we and everybody else crosses a line when it comes to idolizing
For example I think it has been
forgotten by some viewers that youtubers are complex people but i also believe
that some youtuber has forgotten that that each and every one of their viewers
are as complex as they are.
A thing i also think divides
youtubers and viewers are autographs because if a viewer goes to a gathering
and without asking get something (in Vicky's story a poster) signed without
consent then the youtuber is making the gap between youtuber and viewer bigger
because then one is not simple a viewer of a youtubers videos but a fan and
then the youtuber are no longer just a creator but a celebrity. I'm not saying
that i maybe wouldn't want an autograph but if a youtuber assume that i want
one than we are no longer just two people we fan and celebrity.
I also a think that is forgotten
that we as viewers know that there is more to youtubers than they show in their
videos and because youtubers have had fans/viewers scream/being very excited to
see them they have forget this.
It also seems like some of the
things fans/viewers say is being simplified like when i say I'm a fan of a
youtuber i say that I'm fan of their videos and the persona they show and/or
has created. And people should see me as enough of a person to see that when i
say i love a certain person (youtuber) I know that I don’t know all there is to
know but i love the thing that i do know.
i have used for inspiration:
