When YouTube is demonetizing their top-performing content creators like Joe Rogan, it should be unsurprising when they leave for better alternatives. The question I want to tackle is why YouTube has been allowing less and less content to exist on their platform.
I theorize that it partly has to do with storage space costs and partly to do with them wanting to shift their business model to be in line as a competitor with major streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime. Regardless of the reason, this has been a complete flop.
YouTube marketed itself, advertised itself, and built itself up off the backs of creators and being supportive of creators. If there were space issues, they could have limited uploads for channels with fewer followers or something and for the streaming service take, I think they would have pissed off way fewer people and made a ton of money if they just made a separate platform or product that you could still access with your YouTube/Gmail login.
Either way, YouTube is losing creators and support left and right and they seemed doomed to fail at maintaining their status as the creator haven it once was. With so many innovative and successful alternatives, there’s no reason why anyone should stay.
Check out the likes of LBRY, DTube, BitChute, 3Speak, Vibravid, Minds, BitTube, TokenTuber, and Cos.TV. There are many alternatives for people to take advantage of and I recommend diversifying as best as you can. I sure have.
