In order to complete that boycott protest I also had to leave Google, blogger, and gmail accounts as well.
Some of my subscribers did the same and we started a youtube-protest wallpage on Facebook.
The mega-corporate model is to identify successful (often synonymous to innovative and creative) entrepreneurs and buy them out. This happened to many tech companies and youtube is a classic example.
Then the slide downhill begins as profit motives take over with new policies & features changed to monetize users’ personal and private data.
To overwhelm users with advertising and contractual user agreements that infringe on their rights and freedom.
Please consider alternative companies to youtube, google, and facebook services…
Also join groups, such as GNU and Copyleft, FSF, and others in an effort to exercise freedom in the current age of computers.
Caution: anger language used.
Youtube is the new “Tower of Babel”, can we call them the towering “video Babel”?
They may fall as the People seek to exercise their freedom and create alternatives.
PS: I decided to share a short list to assist you in finding alternatives…
Keep searching, as more alternatives are being created…
