As a media passionate, media student and media consumer I think the best search engine is YouTube. I am a journalism student and I love reading blogs and watching vlogs. I am always on the lookout of new stuff, new thoughts, new experiences and YouTube gives me the opportunity to watch anything happening in the world. From a guy giving his thoughts on the elections in Myanmar from his car in Mulai to Taylor Swift singing to 20,000 people at the Staples Centre.
We live in a society where everything is fast, updated and online. YouTube is a book where you can express your opinion, a window where you can say hi to the world but where you can also learn a lot from. If you click on the hashtag PopularOnYouTube on its homepage you can basically update yourself on what’s happening in the world.
From a student point of you, YouTube can give you an outlook on other’s opinions and thoughts which is essential when doing an essay or a research for a project. It might be more useful than a book. I think that a person experiencing an extraordinary event and posting it up on YouTube can me more trustworthy and interesting than a chapter of a book. It’s alive, it’s interactive.
Watch this video. This is society now. This is what unusual people bacame with YouTube.
Thank you YouTube.
