Youtube sucks. Or why we should kill it !

I am honestly tired of Youtube’s aggressive advertisement. Really now … guys … we are eating ads all day. On TV, on the street, listening to FM, reading online news and more.

Lately, in Spain, at every 1-2 videos I have to mute my speakers and switch tabs in my browser. Not only that most of the ads are 19-22 seconds and you can’t skip them, but they are also completely unrelated to my preferences. Youtube … PLEASE, pay some respect to the users that are feeding your bank accounts.

I understand and I agree that every company should find a way to make profits. But if this aggressive advertisement on Youtube is a reaction on the company’s low KPI, then you should rethink a little bit your business strategy.

Until then, with respect, YOU[suck]tube !

Our customer satisfaction went up, and the quality of work improved. We have happier employees, satisfied clients, lowered costs, and a better company overall.
