Owner of a brand new iPad Pro, and installed all my apps. After I installed YouTube but before I logged in I got quite a shock when I loaded it. It was unrecognisable, a grid of sheer unpleasantness and bile, you can probably guess at some of the mix but there was such vile rubbish there, I was taken aback. The minute I clicked in, all gone of course, my bubble wrapped around me.
I got to wondering, a brand new device, not logged in, was this the top content in terms of engagement? Incredibly depressing if so.
I also got to wondering, given that I don’t stay logged in to Google or YouTube on a regular basis, but that I’d never seen the like before, what other means do they have of gauging likely interest, what digital crumbs they have me leave behind for non-logged in me to be guided to.
