WHAT'S UP WITH YOUTUBE'S DISFUNCTIONAL 'LIKE' BUTTON?


Over the past few months, I've clicked the "LIKE" button on a very wide varity of videos that I've watched on the flatporm called "YouTube", after watching it.  Well, Who Hasn't??

Did you know however, that when you click that "Like" button, for some random video which you DID indeed like watching, YouTube adds that video to your account's "Liked Videos" section??

Here's the worst part:  this information on what You have LIKED, is stored somewhere else,  for someone else to see.   And it takes clicking the delete icon (the X),  
~at least 3 (three) times before that old video will go away from your list.
        I checked my "Favorites" list, there were 314 videos in there!!  

Some of which are deleted by the uploader, or have become "Private Video"s, but yet THEY STILL CLOG UP MY LIKED VIDEO COLLECTION,
 FOR SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE TO ANALYZE.

IT TAKES ONLY ONE CLICK, TO "LIKE" SOME VIDEO YOU VIEWED; BUT TAKES AT LEAST THREE ATTEMPTS TO REMOVE IT FROM YOUR PERSONAL STASH.   
I HAD 314.

TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT YOU'VE LIKED; AND ASK YOURSELF IF YOU WOULD WANT ANYONE ELSE TO SEE THAT LIST~~~


      HAVE A LOOK AT WHAT I "LIKED", IF YOU WANT;
IT'S ALL HERE FOR ANYONE TO VIEW, AND MAYBE LIKE YOU, YOU'VE liked SOME VIDEO THAT YOU'VE WATCHED, THINKING YOU'VE ADDED A POSITIVE NOTE TO THAT VIDEOGRAPHER..... INSTEAD OPENING YOURSELF UP TO ANYBODY LOOKING AT WHAT YOU LIKE.

THIS IS AN INVASION OF PRIVACY BY "yOUtUBE", AND BY GOOGLE.  IT'S TIME THEY NEED SOME rough justice.

Below, if you choose to invade my privacy, as Google and YouTube have decided to do, are the remaining 195 videos that I, your Local Malcontent, have "LIKED".
((just click the Fast Forward button in the bottom of each)), and just READ the Video Titles of my LIKES~

OR, Take the shortcut.  Everything that I have LIKED on YouShareTube, is what I've also already shared here on my bloggie....  pretty mundane crap, really-- mostly Revelation 12 videos, and Christian stuff, some beloved videos of music, and some ancient, American comedy~
I'm pretty Vanilla coated, Red Ice....
(0ther than the 159 Racoon-rape videos I deleted....)

~please excuse that one very popular YouTube video of two horses mating, from three years ago, OK??~




From now ON, VIMEO~!

I have six, all of which are there because I wanted to save them for later. A couple of Christmas videos, and an appearance by Wyatt Earp's nephew on The $64,000 Question, things like that.

I don't use Youtube's "Like" button, just like I never leave comments. So I had no reason to know that Like-clicking a video added it to favorites. I think I would have raised holy hell if I'd accumulated hundreds of "favorites" swamping my little collection of genuine favorites.

Google management must want their company's stockholders to go broke or something.
