As a media student, Youtube is such a useful tool to use when researching about specific opinions, videos, songs, talks and pretty much anything. I am a public relations student and I love using youtube to watch current launches of shows, how have they been perceived? What are the peoples opinions on certain issues, is also a an area that is useful when using youtube as you can find out about different people across the world. This can be from a guy giving his opinion on a UK general election, to a video of Lady gaga singing at a show in Madison garden to 15k+ people . There are so many ways to use youtube and for useful information.
Youtube has made itself to be a useful tool where you can find out the daily happenings in the world, obviously the youtube homepage has many useful videos to what is happening in todays society. The hashtag #PopularOnYoutube allows users to find out content that is happening throughout the world all on one page.
From a university/college students point of view, youtube is a very useful tool which allows students to find out different opinions and theories on a specific topic, which is essential when doing a essay or a research project. Its also more interactive and interesting compared to having to read a book.
