Agha Ali Of Digital Information World Gets Zennie Abraham Google, YouTube, Facebook Point Wrong

ONN – Agha Ali Of Digital Information World Gets Zennie Abraham Google, YouTube, Facebook Point Wrong

Talk about not asking a person what they meant in tweets, this Agha Ali guy of “Digital Information World” blog, writes this:

“On Twitter, a YouTuber, Zennie Abraham, started accusing Google of displaying Third-party video links instead of YouTube results to which Danny Sullivan from Google defended.”

First, Agha Ali never bothered to contact me on Twitter (which is easy to do), he just copy pasted part of my conversation with Google’s Danny Sullivan.

What I was rightly complaining about was that Facebook and Instagram openly discriminate against promoting YouTube videos, whereas Google has started presenting them in search results, at times over YouTube videos. This contributes to the overall problem of video monetization that had plagued the vast majority of YouTube Partners, now called YouTube Creators.

This is the Facebook-directed tweet that Agha Ali left out of his post on me:

And Mr. Ali really missed this:

Google has allowed Schema code pages that claim to have videos to overtake real YouTube videos! This has gone on, now, for almost two years without stoppage.

Presenting those tweets changes the nature of his post, and for the better.

Danny says that many search YouTube for YouTube videos – that’s known and not the point. The point is that YouTubers benefit from what’s called “external” view sources – like posts on other platforms.

That ad revenue from those posts benefits YouTube; so why isn’t Google fighting for YouTube?

That’s the question.

But Agha Ali could have reached out to ask me about what the Twitter exchange was all about. He obviously got it wrong.

Stay tuned.

Oakland News Now Note: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network. This is a major part of our new approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and also seek interested content and media technology partners.
