Youtube is powerful

This few weeks, I bought a lot online. I love online shopping because it is so convenient. I am so busy nowadays; however, online shopping save a lot of time, especially time of travelling to the shopping mall. Before I purchased the items, I was wondering how it works and the reviews. I want to buy some luxuries cosmetics. It is expensive, so I need to fully understand the products. I go to youtube and type the items those I want to purchased. There were a lot of reviews of those cosmetics. I watched some of those, and get the information that I needed. Finally, I purchased that one I want regarding to the reviews. When I received the products, it was so nice and it works just exactly the same of how the reviews describe. Blogging is so popular nowadays. People film their life, and share online. The review videos are so useful if people are interested on the same product. Beside, there are many educational video on youtube too. For example, last month, my friend’s phone was dropped on the floor and the screen was broken. He bought a new screen glass to repair. He go to youtube and watch the tutorial of how to fix the phone. Then he follow the steps on the video, his phone fixed.
People love sharing the life online. One of the benefit is people can get information from it. It is so useful.

I agree with you too. Simple make up or review video has tremendous effect on people lives today. In my experience, I wanted to buy some expensive Go-pro camera to put my traveling memories. Of course, as a newbie , I had to look for reviews. YouTubers specifies what's the function and price. Moreover, video always reliable because I can really see how it looks like.

When I first started college I would also find videos to wear my hair in an easier manner and I turned onto YouTube. After learning about simple hairstyles I then came across makeup tutorials and now I have escalated into mainly watching Vlogs that makeup artists make based on their daily lives. YouTube can be informational for many purposes which is useful. I have also watched YouTube videos on how to work a certain math problem or watch videos on the career I want to take and listen to people’s constructive criticism.

Yes YouTube is very helpful for all kinds of things. Recipes, product reviews, repairs, hacks, health info, and tutorials on anything. My son recently broke his elbow and was very nervous about having it removed so we went on YouTube and looked up videos on how the casts are removed and he felt at ease when we went to his appointment to get it remove. I do not know what I would do without YouTube.
