Social media bubble
Things like this will continue to happen as long as you willingly give your content to someone else for free: YouTube Gun Channels In Danger Of Disappearing Forever
The Captain on the economic reality of such things: You Will No Longer Be Able to Make a Living Off of YouTube or Amazon Affiliate
Blogging went the same way. Up until about 2012 or so, this blog made a decent chunk of money. I mean, not like I could live off of it with a family or anything. But enough to support my shooting and technology habits while making a profit. Social media became a thing and website reading, in general, went the way of clickbait and listicles to draw eyeballs from social media. And that was that. Blogging declined, except for those who adapted to the new way or those who already had a very large audience. I’m guessing the number of new blog readers is barely a blip these days. The difference between the social media folks and bloggers is the latter owned their content and delivery system. The social media types don’t own and are dependent on the delivery system someone else owns. And it’s their house and their rules.
Life in the future.
