- Subscriber Goal
I have mine currently hidden because I wanted to do a test but I guess I have to turn my count back on.. What do you think of this
The most important currency on the Internet is trust. Creating trust online is difficult in a world of scammers, imposters, anonymity, likes, and made up information.I agree, I really don't understand the logic of hiding subscribers either. I have never hidden my subscribers' counts, I believe If you be transparent to your subscribers or other people who visit your channel, it will create a sort of trust and thus, it will motivate people to help you grow but again, I will respect your decision of hiding it If you must but since now, YT is taking off that feature or permission to hide the subscribers count, I would like to see how people might react on it. I have a few friends who believe If they hid their subscription counts when they have low subscribers, it might trick people into subscribing, which is quite wrong but some people have different reasons for doing things, hence, it might be fun to see how it will go for them.
The one good thing is that impersonation of the big YouTubers' accounts will be curbed or stopped at all. I personally have come into such a scenario and have found a few channels that were impersonating TubeBuddy and getting people into Crypto currency scams by using the same logo and everything.
I was gonna test it out to see if I get more subscribers or the same amount by hiding my subscriber count for 90 days....I've read articles where people have tried it and it actually worked for them so I was going to test it out and do a video on it but not anymore now lolI am unclear what turning off subscribers count does for any tests you might be doing.
It is perfectly okay to leave your subscriber count off for the time being if it is that important to you but YT is putting an end to that practice once and for all and I (one of many) am in support of it in the interest of transparency.
There are a lot of things written that once "worked". We have to not only figure out how prior information is applicable today's environment but we also have to look into the future.I was gonna test it out to see if I get more subscribers or the same amount by hiding my subscriber count for 90 days....I've read articles where people have tried it and it actually worked for them so I was going to test it out and do a video on it but not anymore now lol
