When one watches one video on YouTube then the viewer sees something that catches their eye in the "Related" section on the side and watches this video then finds another interesting video on "Related" and watches and so on. This process can last for hours, leading the view to videos completely unrelated to the original video they watched, this is very important to discovery of small videos. It is sometimes very hard to stop once you've started.

A website that is owned by Google that has absolutely terrible copyright rules, thanks to the DMCA.
Guy1: I got a copyright strike on YouTube for playing a copyrighted song for 3 seconds.
Guy2: YouTube has some of the worst copyright rules.
Guy1: FUCK YOU DMCA
Guy2: I agree

A site that was once about, well, you is now about whoever makes the most money.

Are you an animator? YouTube doesn't give two shits and they'll never support you.
Do you want to be a critic? Ha! If you want to get a copyright strike then go for it!
Do you want to express your opinion? Get ready to be hated and get your channel taken down for no reason?
Do you want to do anything creative? Go fuck yourself - YouTube

If you want to be successful, do something easy like becoming a let's player or a vlogger. Oh yeah, and make sure you have a pretty face so idiots can fantasize on being in bed with you.
Or you could become the utter scum of YouTube and become a reactionist. What's a reactionist? They're basically people who watch a video and do nothing but yell, "oh shit" or "dayum!" without being creative. In fact, they steal the video!

So there you have it. A site that can be amazing but chooses to be shit.
Hey my channel got taken down!
YouTube: Fuck you.

Back in 2005-2016, it was a Legendary site/app to use, since people could share videos they've created, upload whatever they pleased, and also, if it was massively successful, could get monetization from YouTube VIA Ad money. Nowadays, you can post literally anything that isn't anything bad, and your channel can get striked, because Susan runs YouTube like the Chinese Government runs their Market... Censoring lots and lots.
Before 2016

Guy: "Man YouTube is THE best thing the Internet can offer, fr"
Guy 2: "Bro, come on. Everybody and their mother knows that YouTube is like, a mythical place to chill out to"
Guy: "I hope YouTube can stay with humanity, like, forever."
Guy 2: "Same"

After 2016:

YouTuber: "BRO WTF MAN, I'M ONLY GETTING A DOLLAR FOR EVERY MILLION VIEWS! WTF!!!!!"
YouTuber 2: "MAN AT LEAST IT'S NOT AS BAD AS HAVING A MEME VIDEO TAKEN DOWN FOR USING LIKE 2 SECONDS OF COPYRIGHTED MUSIC!"
YouTuber: "OMG I HATE THIS SO MUCH BROOO!!!"
YouTuber 2: "BRO SAME..."
