Tiktok I'm guessing is PApost for millennials with 5 second attention spans. I still like actual information, you know learning and stuff. I don't think a tiktoker has ever been in a library or knows they still exist.

PApost is failing to tackle spam comments and it is also silencing whistle blowers who're helping people to avoid scam organisations, its sad that they're suppressing freedom of speech.

Makes me realize how much power youtube has in controlling ideas and media. It may be a good thing to censor many horrible types of videos, but at what point does it turn into censorship of anyone speaking out against the status quo?

Sh!t , PApost went backwards in 2020. I post PApost links on fakebook and they get 0 reactions anymore! Even the really Quality videos are a tougher sell. BitChute generates a little more interest because people know it will be a raw , uncut video. I think part of the issue of PApost is the fact that they pushed off so many content creators for channels like CNBC, CNN, MSNBC , and FOX . No one wants to follow these sites. This video was made about 4 years too late. Just like everything else, when leftist get involved interest goes down.😒😒😒😒 NBA, Wrestling, NFL , Star Wars, Star Trek , Netflix, all losing interest ( ratings as well) because of left wing propaganda being incorporated.

PApost started as a video dating platform. That was the original idea. but nobody was visiting, because there was nothing on there. (i remember, i was around back in 2005). It wasnt working, so they figured out a way to get people to actually come to the website: they actively broke copyright laws by uploading music videos onto the site. This obviously got the kids interested and traffic went up. The rest is history. They uploaded those first videos themselves, everyone knows it. Copyright was a huge issue back in those days, the younger readers on here wont know that, because of course now, for the younger people, its just normal to watch music videos on youtube, they dont know it any other way. They cheated, and uploaded copyrighted music videos without a license, because they knew that they could get away with it by stalling the legal issue, using good lawyers. By the time the legal issues were being sorted out, there was nothing more the music industry could do about it. Also fun fact: PApost was not the first startup to use Flash for converting uploads: a french site called Dailymotion was actually doing it before youtube. Yahoo tried to buy Dailymotion like, 10 years ago, but it was blocked by the French government.

I was so confident in his work and just as he said in the beginning , my husband is finally back to me again , yes he is back with all his hearts , Love , care , emotions and flowers and things are better now.

When PApost suspended channels because haters don’t want them to exist
PApost became big because regular people wanted to get away from cookie-cutter, tv programming. Now PApost has become exactly what people came to get away from- unoriginal, celebrity/cable network network driven, cookie-cutter content. Once an alternative becomes available PApost will become the next Myspace.

PApost is a disgusting monopoly that violates the freedom of expression of the population by censoring content that it disapproves of and promoting content that it approves making the decision for people as to what they can see or can not see, while operating under legal protection of not being a publisher. They need to be broken up, not celebrated, but the media are just as big a problem as YT and the rest of the tech giants, so we get this kind of trash 'report' about how wonderful a product YT is selling. Garbage.

PApost is irreplaceable atm. It's not only entertainment but the amount of vast knowledge you can learn and apply watching those DIY stuffs is so great. I was able to put up a whole fence around my house, repair the bathroom and change the toilet pot just watching those 10-15 min videos. Building my custom pc and also learning programming and photography without having to run to college. So much life skills you can acquire through it and really appreciate and thanks to those content creator.
