Creamhoven Posted March 24 Share Posted March 24 Hello fellow decent gamers, today I want to open a discussion about a very unfortunate occurance. By random chance I came across multiple videos of youtubers talking about the issue of youtubers getting paid fees for making reviews, without informing the audience about this. The number of videos that I saw led me to believe that this might be a real phenomenon. A youtuber said that he has recieved an e-mail by a company asking for a review and what fee he charges. Ive dismissed it at first. Companies paying fees for so called reviews, that is conspitorial type of thinking! When I saw more videos that adressed this issue, I was conflicted. Is it true? Are gaming companies working together with youtubers to advertise their product under the guise of a review? Think about it. When you can buy off a youtuber to make a video that looks like a review when it is in fact a advertisement this could be a quite effective way to move product, at the cost of trusting personality types. Is the fake review conspiracy theory true? This saddens me. Please share your thougts. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
