Golden age of YouTube replaced by darkness: YouTuber Joey Graceffa
Share This Article:
YouTube’s golden age is over and has been replaced by a dark place, popular YouTuber Joey Graceffa has claimed. He blamed increased anger and fear in the world for the shift. The 27-year-old, who has almost nine million subscribers on his main channel on the video-sharing website, believes the algorithm on YouTube favours “negative energy”, with people focusing on cancel culture, where controversial comments or activities from a person’s past are dug up. “The direction it’s in right now, I don’t personally agree with the types of videos and content that does well,” Mr Graceffa explained. “I definitely think there was a golden age of YouTube but currently now it’s a bit of the dark times, and hopefully we’ll get out of that soon.” The video-maker said he feels as though people want to see others fail, turning the platform into a “very scary and dark place”.
