As with any sole provider, it can (and will) turn to utter rubbish, competition keeps things fresh, keeps things clean, keeps things from becoming an overwhelming dictatorship, and makes any platform that can legitimately claim the top position, there because people have chosen it.
What we have is a clear platform monopoly, and thus, they not only do not need to listen to anyone but those that would legislate against their power, they have no fear of repercussion to any of their ill-minded actions, why would they? Where are you going to go they laugh to their selves!
The only way to stop YouTube from becoming consistently worse, will be a viable option for people to migrate to another network of equal calibre, which is pretty far fetched at this point in time.
I've even heard (unverified), that YouTube is now operating at a large loss to the company, they don't mind though because it seems what they lose in profit, they gain in societal influence.
I wouldn't say the begging for likes and subs. I mean we gotta make a living off it somehow.
For me I think it's the lack of transparency from youtube itself and their total lack of hearing out legitimate issues. Like big companies abusing the automation of Youtube's systems like Nintendo for example. Or letting politics dictate their moderating and rules rather than a fair unbiased system. Like right now. All this history and gun enthusiast channels are getting targeted because anti gun is the current political fade at the moment. Politics as a subject is a nasty viotaile mess in itself. Problem is it tends to leak into other non political aspects and cause problems for areas outside of politics.
