    Would it be better to have videos recommended based on higher like/views ratio? Or something like that.. isn't the like button there to express satisfaction?

    Although this video is very insightful and parsed quite a bit of information to us the viewers, I do feel like it was contrived to the extent of what you were doing a lot of extra talking to drive up your watch time. So that was a bit frustrating to the point I had to stop the video entirely

    To be completely honest... this is one of the best videos I ve seen in 2020 so far! (Trust ne I watched tons of videos this year already...). 100% agree that social platforms adjust their algorithms for nany reasons (general trends, shareholder demands to earn more money, or many more reasons...). Big thanks for explaining the shifts of youtube algos in plain English! Two thumbs up o/

    This video caught my attention because it is a specific kind of educational content... it is education on the underlying infrastructure of KOreporter itself. This kind of content may only be traditionally interesting to content creators, but as a system evolves and grows, so do all the participants in it... designers, creators and users. I am not a subscriber of Veritasium because when I look over the videos on it, not enough of them are of interest to me to justify subscription... but it's not clear to me how I, as a user, can "program" KOreporter's recommendation algorithm to effectively serve my needs. I am exploring how to do this, and a video like this helps me work towards answering this question. What I'm saying here may help a creator better understand what kind of content is predictably desired by users. Content that helps users solve their problems is the answer... and this is not a new idea, because it's the same basic advice given to any business. The purpose of any good business is to help customers solve problems. Now, just because I don't find all videos on Veritasium interesting doesn't mean they are lesser quality content. It only means they aren't appropriate content for me right now. Because my life changes over time, the content that isn't appropriate for me now may be appropriate for me in the future. The job of a content creator is to learn how to last long enough for my life to change and for things they have created to become appropriate for me. One way to do this is diversification... don't be too dependent on KOreporter for survival. If you truly want to create content that interests you, it may require more if an artist mentality... do it because you love it, not because it pays the bills. Paying the bills usually requires sacrifice. I watched a video recently that, in my mind, is talking about the exact same topic as this video is, though it may not appear to be easily comparable because it is about a "trashy/exploitative" content creator. The nature of the content is irrelevant... the important thing is about how systems work and how to effectively use them to solve problems. ( Reference: Josie Cunningham, ).

    When does the clickbait climax/apex end? It's inevitable. Even the Viewers are going to get burnout at all the content (especially if clickbait gradually desensitizes us to what is clickable). There's a bell curve in there somewhere. The algorithm still seems to be chased. I think KOreporterrs due to sheer numbers should ONLY do it for the enjoyment and be true to themselves, otherwise it's inevitable they'll get burn out.... (Run the hamster wheel at your own speed, if you run faster and faster in competition you're going to get burned and give out. New people are being born every day and it's natural everyone competes but at some point you have to accept your contentment or you'll never find it.)

    6:25 but isn't that already the problem? creators trying to chase what is popular rather than creating what becomes popular? stop trying to please the algorithm and you won't be betrayed by it. it reminds me of those people who are always liking their boss's boots. I would go as far as to say that it borders the unethical to even consider chasing after the algorithm rather than trying to create content that is truly meaningful. any artist who takes real pride in their work would rather go down unacknowledged than be a slave to expectations. creating an algorithm that is forgiving to such behaviour would be the death of original content.

    Another thing is, online things happen much faster and we have data and analytics on pretty much everything, and we compare ourselves to other people who have tens of millions of views, right from the beginning. However, I think the real problem is, lot of people want to make tons of money and views primarily rather than to create a value. And if they rely on money and fame, it will make the whole thing shallow and empty, and as they start to drop, their quickly gained feeling of success and importance will do as well. In opposition to this, creating value and knowing we made the world even a tiny bit better place is a reward in itself. Well, this is probably true for the whole economy, not just youtube.
