Youtube kids

When my boys are napping and my little sweet angel Peace is napping I have free time at home. We have a maid that comes in to clean and do the laundry here so I don’t have to do any thing like that. I do my work calls and emails when I have down time. Lately though.

Okay I’ve been on Youtube guys. No one told me what it as like out there. I clicked on 1 stinking video that led me to another and another and another and…

You get it. These Youtube kids. I don’t really get them. I mean I know that we are in the Selfie age and I know people are a lot more narcissistic than I am (If that’s possible 😉 ) but I don’t know. I mean they do prank videos. Then they do reaction videos. Then they make up music videos and on and on. They get 9 million followers in a week? WTF. I’m up to, let me look, oh wow Lol Sidebar!

Guys I’m at 84,999 followers on my Twitter account. It’s been 1 year since I joined Crowdfire and I’m up that far. I thought that was good. The new Twitter app shows when your follower count goes up by one so let me wait a few to see who the lucky number 85,000 is.

It’s @TechGenYZ, go follow that account please. He just won a free shoutout! I just looked the account is in Kolkata, West Bengal. Oh that’s Calcutta. I had to google that too.

Okay back to what I was saying. They get all of these followers who “sub” their channel. I had to google that, it’s subscribe. They have all of this lingo, they are all dabbing everyone, everywhere. I don’t get it. I’m going to start watching more of their videos to try to understand this phenomenon. So far the only kid that seems nice and respectful if FazeRug. He just pranks his parents. Some of the videos do look set up. I think his parents are in on some of them but I also think they want to get famous too. They each have their own Youtube channel as well.

Does anyone get why you do prank/reaction/whatever videos daily on Youtube? Are they making money or is this all for the attention? I don’t know. Please explain I’m just an old dad over here trying to remember to put the twist tie back on the bread sack.
