Prior to this assignment, I had never registered as a member. I had never followed anyone, subscribed to their channel or liked/commented on any videos.
I've always been hesitant to sign up for youtube because it's an environment where people get pretty heated. Leaving any type of comment leaves room for people to get angry and retaliate, and a large percentage of videos posted have arguments under their comment section. Hopefully I will have a pleasant experience during this assignment!
I never understood why people joined youtube and what was all entailed. Since joining, I have just been spending time getting acquainted with how the site works, channels and how to interact with people.
