Am I the only one who has noticed that Google loves to give power features to those users who are popular or famous? Before you go all crazy on me, let me explain…
YouTube: This is the first one I feel disgruntled about. Ever heard of the term Partner? Of course you have, and hearing about it is all you will ever do unless you reach a high amount of views and subscribes. I think it would be in Google’s best interest if they allowed anyone to be a Partner. It would make them more money then it would us. So what if our videos were subpar? As long as somebody watched your videos, Google would make money. AND SO WOULD YOU. Hello? Failing Economy? It’s a NO BRAINER!
We would all like to be power users. Google could have a service for everyone called “Temp Partner” where everyone gets to feel the joy of being a YouTube Partner. If you didn’t keep up with your schedule, THEN you would be dropped from being a Partner. Badabing, Badaboom.
Google Plus: If you have a lot of people who have put you in their circles, you receive a plethora of new features as they roll out. The rest of us schoobies have to wait until they’ve been ran through the mud and boasted by big wigs. Screw us small wigs. We aren’t allowed to the party. The big one I’m focusing on is Hangouts On Air. Now Google Plus power users can stream their hangouts to YouTube for the world to see. The rest of us who want to do this have to download software, subscribe to a service, etc. It’s ridiculous how they treat us.
I could go on and on, but I will stop before I blow my stack.
