“Knowledge made simple” can be applied to the tremendous number of YouTube videos available to the user covering an wide variety of topics. Diverse subjects appear on this platform as academics from major universities lecture on scholarly topics or the latest fashion advice is dispensed from people located throughout the world. Varieties of musical genres are accessible on the platform and any topic search might produce thousands of results.
On the other hand, in some instances, the video producers’ qualifications are unknown in many instances and it is possible to spend time watching videos that are misleading, or contain informational and instructional errors. The number of views posted for a video is not necessarily an indicator of its truth or reliability. So, other than accessing videos produced by large companies or academic institutions wary of liability issues, or entertainment videos, time spent watching YouTube videos can be a waste or even misleading.
