Are you one of the millions of internet users that enjoy viewing free movies on YouTube?   If you’re, the notion of creating your own YouTube movie could have crossed your mind; has it?   If so, you may be wondering whether you should create your own YouTube video and then upload it to the YouTube website.   When making your decision, it’s advised that you can analyze the pros and cons of doing this.

When it comes to creating your own YouTube video, there are a number of cons or downsides to doing this.   Perhaps, the biggest downside to creating your own video and then uploading it to YouTube is that you are essentially sharing the movie with the entire world.   Many individuals mistakenly believe that their videos will only be seen by YouTube members, but this isn’t the truth.   Any internet user, even those with no YouTube accounts, can see videos on YouTube.   In actuality, it is not unusual for YouTube video viewers to email a YouTube video link to those they know. 

Considering any movie that you upload to the YouTube website can be viewed by just about anybody with an internet connection, you might want to be careful with the amount of information that you disclose.   As an example, if you’re doing a video blog, you might not need to give your real name or at least not your full name.   It is also important that you don’t mention where you live.  If you want, you might want to outline the state that you reside in, but never provide the city or town, especially if you disclose your title.   You will want to attempt to refrain from providing any personal information to any YouTube member, even those who send you personal messages requesting information.  As with most online site, YouTube can be a dangerous place, but you should have the ability to stay safe as long as you stay aware.

Even though there are a couple of downsides or disadvantages to uploading your videos to the YouTube site, there are also a number of pros or plus sides to doing so.   One of those pros is ease of use.   Even in the event that you believe yourself to be unskilled with computers, then you still need to be able to make, upload, and share your video or videos on YouTube.   Once you have your video on your computer and edited, if you wish to do so, you will simply need to follow YouTube’s step-by-step uploading instructions and then your movie should be ready for sharing, in as little as a few minutes.  

Another pro to using YouTube to discuss your own videos with other internet users is uses.   Although a large number of internet users use YouTube videos for fun or for private reasons, there are lots of others using them for business or at least to up their exposure.   You will need to remember that millions of internet users watch videos on YouTube.   Whether you’re advertising your services, like as a website designer or an internet actress, you can do this through YouTube.   The only thing you will want to do is try not to take the spam approach.   If you are marketing yourself as a web site designer, try taking a few videos of you making a website or use your video to research websites that you have made.  Simply adding your business information at the end of the video is a great way to get your point across, but without creating your YouTube video seem as it’s an advertisement.

As stated above, it is advised that you use your best judgment.   Needless to say, you can post a video on YouTube if you prefer to do so, but just be sure that you are doing so safely.
