I've been enjoying YouTube for years & have been a premium member since I was available. I really think YouTube is creating a proper social media competitor to Instagram & will continue to make the interactive features better as time passes. YouTube is really the only social media app I use & I can say so with pride now. The community is so much better than it used to be & I personally watch TV on YouTube more than I do through cable.
