YouTube has made it possible for online users to present and have access to as many ideas that can possibly be created by the human mind. No special degree of expertise is required to come up with a video for uploading to YouTube. Online users are pretty much free to test their good and bad ideas online with almost instantaneous feedback from an audience.
As a video sharing website, YouTube has provided a very convenient way for people to upload, view, and share videos. Contents that are usually user-generated can contain a wide range of topics and quality of output. These can come in the form of music videos, movie and TV clips, video blogs, and all sorts of video presentations.
It would not be inaccurate at all to say that the online audience has been treated to the best and worst ideas of all time through YouTube. This is not at all surprising since testing both good and bad ideas in YouTube seem to be a common occurrence among users. By and large, this freedom has enabled the audience to see the best of what the platform can offer. It is interesting to note that the so-called YouTube hits are not merely confined to exemplary work.
Most of us are by now very familiar with viral video. Viral videos are materials that have gained popularity within a very short time span primarily through the process of Internet sharing through social media, email, and video-sharing websites like YouTube. Most are what can be called as overnight sensations, creating such as stir in the online environment as to result to a viewing numbers that can run to more than a billion.
We can just imagine what kind of impact that generates to the public. A virtual unknown can be be transformed through the power of the Internet and the YouTube platform into the most popular figure the world has ever known. It isn’t any wonder therefore that many people are trying to use these tools for their own personal and business goals.
Good or Bad – Still an Idea
Qualifying whether an idea meant to be presented on YouTube may be premature when done before it has had the chance of being presented to the public. With the exception of course of video material that can out-rightly be categorized as unlawful, unethical, or unsafe for some reason, every idea deserves to be presented. In the end, it will be the audience who will have the final say for the material presented.
