Recently I have been becoming increasingly annoyed by the amount of YT gurus and bloggers who post "reviews" of products that they have literally just opened. I don't know about you, but I believe a review should be about a product that you have used for a while. It's impossible to get all the good and bad points simply from opening the product. These types of posts/videos should be more appropriately titled as "unboxing" or something similar because that is basically what they are. I clicked on a product review video this morning and as soon as I realised that it was really just a product promotion video for products that had been sent to them I quickly stopped the video and went to do something less boring instead.
Whilst I am on the subject, another pet hate of mine is YouTubers and Bloggers who don't reply to any comments you make. Even worse, some Bloggers in particular, don't reply to ANY comments made on their posts. I feel this is incredibably rude and extremely big headed of them not to interact with their viewers/readers. After all, without the viewers/readers then what is the point? Viewers/readers and their loyalty to the YouTuber/Blogger shouldn't go completely unnoticed. Granted, some gurus receive a large amount of comments and can't physically answer them all, but bloggers in general receive a lot less and I don't think there is any excuse for not replying to people on a blog.
