Why PewDiePie Should’ve Quit YouTube For Real | CCS Video Podcast
Recently PewDiePie has made the announcement that when his YouTube channel reaches 50M subscribers, he is going to close it down. The reasons being the latest round of complaints by YouTube creators involving 1) YouTube viewers being unsubscribed from their favorite channels without their knowledge; and 2) subscribed content being drowned out by either recommended videos, recommended videos with deep pockets, clickbait videos with large view counts, or older, more popular videos by a channel a viewers is already subscribed to.
After watching his video, here is our somewhat controversial argument. Personally, we don’t think that PewDiePie will follow through with this threat if the comment box controversy is anything to go by. However, love him or hate him, we as YouTube creators NEED PewDiePie to NOT delete his channel.
Because better or worse, he is one of the top YouTube channels that represents the YouTube creator community.
