Well, basically the site has been around since it has more traffic than any social media sites on cyberspace. And it’s widely used by many as their platform to stardom. However, upon this being well-known, there are a lot of advertisers who take advantage to the site, by posting advertisements in the videos that you are browsing on youtube. For me, it’s kind of annoying seeing an ad on a video you are browsing. Why not put an advertisement on the other areas of the site, rather than putting it on the video which makes youtube viewers bored of waiting for their video browsed to load since a stupid commercial is popping.

We really cannot complain about it my friend, because it's how the site earns from letting us view videos for free . I also encounter that a lot of times and it's indeed annoying. I guess, it's one reason why the video takes a while before it runs?

I totally agree with you and beside if we can view free videos for just watching a 10 or 20 sec add, i think it's worth it. (loved you profile pic , is it yours :d )

No , it's not my picture. It's an avatar i downloaded from the net, alvi. I changed it because i got tired of my real picture as my profile picture.
