Is Youtube Losing Popularity?
« on: May 01, 2014, 08:18:26 PM »
I ask this question because all this weekend I have been seeing commercials on tv promoting Youtube. Seeing as I have never seen a Youtube commercial before and the fact that just about everyone who has access to the internet knows what Youtube is, this strikes me as a bit odd.

Why does Google feel the need to advertise Youtube now? The only thing I can think of is that Google is seeing something about Youtube's "numbers" that they don't like and feel an advertising push is the only way to improve the situation.

So what does CFC think? Is Youtube losing favor with the internet masses? Can anyone provide any insight as to why Google feels now is the time to start an ad campaign for what is probably their most well-known service outside of their search engine?

Youtube's popularity will continue to grow as the number of computer users with decent internet connections increase. This does not mean Youtube shouldn't be advertised though. Take another example - Coca-Cola. It's a pretty popular drink in many places in the world. So should they stop advertising it? No.
