Youtube Videos

       Last week the post was about what people your kids are following and watching.  This week is about the type of videos they're watching.  Some of the types of videos make you think, "people really watch this?"  Yes.  Yes they do.  Hundreds, thousands, and even millions of people watch these types of videos.

       So what types of videos are kids watching?  The article below describes the main genres as: Let's Plays, Minecraft, Unboxing, Challenges, Makeup and Fashion, and generally Funny Stuff.  To learn more about what these videos contain as well as some of the main personalities that post these videos with millions of views, click the article below.

Discussion questions with MS students:  What type of videos do you watch? Have you seen these types of videos? Do you think they are a good use of time? What do you think about the language many of the popular Youtubers use?

Youtube "Stars"

 

       Last week we posted about how kids spend their time.  Much of it (as much as 6 hours/day) is spent on their phones.  Even if they don't yet have a phone, much of it is spent in front of a device.  So what are they doing?  A good guess is watching some sort of video - Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, Vine, etc.

       Youtube is one of the most popular video sharing sites on the planet, so what are they watching on there and is it edifying?  Check out the article below to take a look at several Youtube "stars" and you be the judge!

*Note, this article was published in Sept 2014. So, this top 10 list has since changed, but all 10 of these Youtubers have gained a significant amount of subscribers over the last two years to remain prevalent in the vlogging world.

Discussion questions with MS students:  Have you heard of any of these Youtubers? Seen their videos? What do you think? Who do you subscribe to or watch videos of? Do you think it gives glory to God? Why/why not?
