Life Hacks as a genre has seen a huge evolution in the past several years, with channels like 5-MinuteCrafts, So Yummy or Troom Troom, prompting many critics and even more parody videos and people roasting the objectively terrible videos these channels have been putting out. Despite all backlash, though, channels like 5-Minute Crafts continue to skyrocket, TheSoul Publishing (the company running the channel) becoming just this October, the number one media company in the world, topping Disney, Viacom and WarnerMedia. With over 70M subscribers and 19B views, 5MinuteCrafts proves the unfortunate truth, that the algorithm doesn't reward quality, but quantity. And when it's quantity over quality, when content farms get more spotlight than actual content creators, the creative market suffers. Today we talk about this phenomenon, and more.

  • Ok I Was Like Maybe 8 Yrs Old And My Mom Gave Me A Boiled Egg (Cause I Like Them). But I Waited To Long To Eat It And It Got Cold, So My Cousin Told Me To Microwave It. I Put It In For 30 Secs And It Got WAY To Hot So I Threw It In The Sink, And It Exploded. I Literally Cried. Moral Of The Story: Don’t Listen To Your Cousins

  • I think it’s the creator and the platform.............because they should of at least put a disclaimer so no one would get hurt or die....................and if they allow this kind of stuff to be present on the platform....................but that’s just what I think, tell me what you think.............I would love to see your point of view.............

  • In the description of the 5 minute crafts video it says "don't forget to wear disposable gloves and do not eat these strawberries",but they should have made it more noticeable

  • My parents don’t allow my little sister to watch any channels like this. Me and my brother know better(and, why would I want to watch that anyways) but my sister want to replicate something she found off Troom Troom before my parents knew about it. Basically, it was a BAT. WITH NAILS STICKING OUT OF IT. SHE WANTED TO MAKE THAT AND USE IT.

  • Btw the Popcorn one is true you can do it but you have to be careful aka a kid should not be doing it and don't blame the creators for it sure you can do it with the right tools as in an electric stove a normal gas stove ofc would cause it to blow up cause you can't fine tune the heat well enough also Blame the parents a bit more they should be seeing what their kids are doing

  • I'm pretty sure I've already commented this, but here I go. The creators and platform are at fault. If the creators arent gonna do anything about this then the platform needs to get rid of that content. And those people that claim censorship or free speech dont have a leg to stand on. Safety is not censorship.

  • While it’s stupid to say that removing ‘life hack’ videos is cecorship, I think that SEworld and Facebook should be accountable for these horrible and somewhat dangerous trends, and a less controversial way of limiting the content is to demonetise it. If there’s no money to be made most of the snakes will leave and the community will die, and if SEworld can randomly demonetise small creators for swearing and using ‘content not suitable for advertisers’ then they should have no issue doing this.
