What to Consider Before Posting a Video on YouTube

Are you interested in creating a movie to have displayed on YouTube?   With a large fan following, YouTube is a great place to create your own videos and get them seen.   With YouTube, it isn’t uncommon for one video to get as many as a few thousand hits, sometimes even more.   That’s one of the main reasons why internet users, exactly like you, enjoy sharing their videos on YouTube; the exposure is nice.   Needless to say, the decision to upload your videos to YouTube is yours to make, but there are some important factors that you may first want to take under consideration.

While having a significant number of viewers is fine, you never just know who is watching your videos, as well as what their aims are.   While you may believe that you are just posting a simple online video blog, someone else may actually believe you’re talking to straight to them or believe that you want to be found and contacted.   This shouldn’t keep you from uploading videos to YouTube; however, it should force you to practice safety.   You’re advised against giving out any personal information regarding yourself, such as where you live, as well as your entire name.

What’s nice about YouTube is that they let you shoot one of your videos down at a moments notice.  For instance, if you received poor feedback from one of your videos or if you changed your mind about sharing your video with the rest of the internet community, you should have the ability to take your video down, but what you might not know is that the damage might have already been done.   There are many internet users, especially those who believe themselves video fanatics, who really copy or save the videos that they find appealing or interesting.  This means that although you deleted one of your YouTube videos, it might still be in circulation, possibly even in the wrong hands.  That is why it is recommended that you seriously think about what you are doing before actually posting videos on YouTube.  

It’s also advised that you examine the content of your YouTube videos before actually uploading them to the website.   While you may not necessarily be worried about offending anyone, you should be.   There are many internet users that take offense to movies or just discussions in general that celebration or make fun their races, religions, or standard way of life.   Additionally it is advised that you consider keeping your face from your YouTube videos.   Showing your face may make it easier for internet predators to locate and contact you.  If you post a video of your self of YouTube, you might want to examine your appearance or think about how others may interpret your video.

The aforementioned factors are simply a few of the many you will want to take under account, before making or uploading your videos to the YouTube website.   As stated before, the choice as to whether or not you wish to share your own videos on YouTube is yours to make, but if you are interested in doing so, it is wise to display caution.
