SINCE I do not have TV at my place, I have been reliant to the internet, particularly YouTube, to provide some of my entertainment needs. So here are some of the interesting videos I found on the video sharing website:
How Facebook is Stealing Billions of Views
Channel: In a Nutshell – Kurzgesagt (youtube.com/user/Kurzgesagt)
Recently, Facebook announced that its video views have reached eight billion views per day! That’s a lot of views. However, In a Nutshell explains to us as to how the social media giant was able to gain this number of views per day through rigging their algorithms and auto-plays. It also tackles on how most content on Facebook are stolen and how it is affecting the content creators of YouTube. It is a very technical video but well explained and informative. The graphics used are clean and also helps you to understand what they are explaining.

What would happen if you didn’t sleep? – Claudia Aguirre
Channel: TED-Ed (youtube.com/user/TEDEducation)
I think the title says it all as to what the video is about. This is a very informative video showing what will happen to you when you cannot get any sleep at all. Just to give you a snapshot, not getting any sleep can cause psychological, physical, emotional, and hormonal problems, among others. As always, this TED-Ed video explains the topic clearly and the visuals really helps in understanding what is being discussed.
