I am just tired. You might have heard latest thing Youtube has done. Their golden boy caused controversy and Youtube decided show they are serious by taking monetazition away from all the smaller channels. Like we who have followed the rules and haven't done anything stupid are the cause of Youtube's problems. Probably no channel causing problems will be hit by this last action.
This makes me reconsider what I will do with Youtube. I haven't got money from them but in future there is no hope of getting any. Lately I have got more money but never hit the threshold for payments. When I check my traffic sources most viewers come from social media. Only traffic Youtube seems to give my channel are synth videos which are so niche there is almost no competition. Then they can show my channel.
Probably my content isn't suitable for all the click bate and people doing stupid things videos. I think Vimeo would be better suited but there is not similar monetazition. If there is no monetazition in Youtube for channels like mine I can as well upload my videos for more suitable platforms too. I will upload videos to Youtube because it is still the place to be. I don't know how long. I can't be only one feeling this way. I will probably watch less Youtube if I am only good for bringing audience for others to make money of.
Too bad Vid.me has already closed. They might have got new users after Youtube's latest thing. Youtube is lucky they don't have real competition yet. Maybe Facebok's videos will change that. If Facebook gives similar monetazition I would upload my videos there. Others would do the same. There should be something but it doesn't work for me. I can't even open page which tell the requirements.
