i sometimes go down the rabbit hole and start looking at YouTube cooking vids.

 

An endless fork here to there etc.

 

recently Ive found a set

 

SousVide Everything which Im enjoying.

 

I avoid " SocialMedia " and " Subscribe " like the Plague.

 

however Ive ' subscribed ' to these as an experiment.

 

they seem to come at leasts once a week.

 

however  Im not sure what Subscribe means or accomplishes.

 

I wouldn't mind going to the site from time to time and See What's New

 

but as far as I can tell , having no YT skills at all

 

I can't even sort the group by date made   etc

 

anyone more YT competent than me ?   [ed.:  that's probably everybody here that's been to YT more than once ! ]

I'm slightly farther along than you, but not much. I have learned that if I subscribe to a particular YouTube series I'll get a notification every time a new video comes out. The notification comes by email and as a notification to my Android devices. The notification methods can be adjusted, just as they can be adjusted for eGullet.

 

AFAIK the business of "following" someone benefits that person, but not you. The more followers someone has, the better their cachet. @gfron1 referred to this when he was looking to get his book published. He, @Franci and any number of other star members can asked more light on this aspect if they wish.

Two thoughts on this. I subscribe to YouTube channels so that I can go to my page and see what new videos have been released without getting notifications.

 

From the perspective of the uploader, if they have ambitions for a book or paid videos or such then the more followers you have the better, but I don't think that's what the OP is getting at here. I think my former answer is more relevant.
