Hello ladies and gentlemen and welcome to another edition of the monthly newsletter, this month's Newsletter is brought to you by the community team, yup that's right, these are the guys & gals you see all over Freedom including the F! Channel, Discord, Facebook, Twitter and the Freedom Forums. You know come to think of it that's a lot of us... Anyway back to the Newsletter, let's remind you all of the activities and events that happened in April. "Dealing with 4k1k" As we all know well, the recent changes to Youtube are nowhere to say, to say the least, and everyone and every other channel has adapted to this change and some of you managed to maintain your partnership and some of you were unfortunately removed, but with this being said, YOU MUST NOT GIVE UP. Now you can attempt to let this defeat you and discourage you from making the content you love but I say this: Why not look at this a positive? "How can this be a positive" It is a positive because now you have another or greater chance to show your passion for videos again, while all the other channels that have given up, leaves more room in the market for you to shine, so think of it like that. When you do, you'll realize that actually, this is an opportunity. Logan Paul ends daily vlogging Not particularly thrilling. Well, I suppose it's Logan so we might as well talk about this as in the mainstream media it's big news. When he started his Daily Vlogs series in September 2016 he has built up an audience of 17 million subscribers. After a total of 536 daily vlogs, he has decided that he will not be continuing any more. Which I believe is the result of the backlash that faced at the beginning of the year in January, for his absolute ill and disrespectful behavior which then leads to him losing his Google Preferred ad scheme, but alas I am just a writer, what would I know. To be fair who wants to go around buying much that says "hey, I want to be an unbranded calf or yearling." Merch joke, I know I'm not funny. YouTube channel pages down for several hours Yup, you read that right, The world's largest online video site, which is owned by Google, confirmed that channel pages went down for about three hours. To be clear, you could still watch videos on the site -- you just couldn't find them by clicking on channel pages. A YouTube spokeswoman said the pages went down starting around noon PT. They started to reappear around 3 p.m. PT. The news is just so crazy right! Time to get Social, with Freedom!
