How Google and YouTube replaced the Encyclopedias
What’s an encylcopedia?
But really!In all sincerity, I do have to say that by using YouTube as a form of further education, I have successfully taught myself quite a few things. Things like, replacing iphone and ipad screens. Finding out why my Murano keeps making that grinding noise and how I can properly explain it to my mechanic in hopes that he doesn’t charge me too much for being a girl that knows nothing of cars (chicas you know how that is…but another topic for another day!). It’s insane the amount of information that is available to the public at your very fingertips! I personally feel like we live in a very Golden age, and don’t know what I would do without these informational videos! You can easily find survival tips when your camping, what to do or not do when a bear comes your way, how to properly filter water so it is safe to drink in case of an emergency situation, where you can’t find a single Dunkin Donuts at every corner. Things from sewing, to changing a tire, starting your own business!, geez the list is kinda endless. YouTube is a tool of knowledge, boredom killer, and also used as a self promotional business booster, oh yes! also making some things go viral can be a bit of a buzkill, but hey! The good with the bad yea? Anyway, to further conclude this blog, I leave you here with a question.
How much of YouTube do you think is informative and resourceful?
