1. Free Advertising

2. User Base of YouTube Expands even more

3. YouTube will OWN these people like Disney and Nickelodeon

4. The Own the rights to more shows.

5 Viewers.... You Tube will make more money and Google Wins.


BUT I don' think the people on youtube are ALL that interesting really....

I look forward to the day that I am listening to a Don LaFontaine "In a world where" style voice over on a radio commercial followed by BdoubleO100 yelling "Get a chop job in your face ya stupid idiot."

Despite what some say, being a YouTuber is not a real job or a profession. Its not like they have trained for it or have some education for it, they are just very lucky.

Neither is being a critic yet everyone seems to want to give their two cents. Some of these youtubers may be trained actors who are using this free platform to get their name out there. I for one don't see a problem with this. If you don't like it don't watch.

Obviously not all Youtube stars will translate to traditional star roles but there are certainly some Youtube stars that could easily be traditional stars given different circumstances. Jenna Marbles comes to mind here...

Good idea I suppose, it allows lesser known talents to be able to break out in to fame. upsidedwnsmiley.gif
