My Youtube Diary | June 2017

The results are in.

Back at the end of May I decided to look through my web browser history and look at how many Youtube videos I had watched, and listed them here on my blog. Since it had been done with no further planning, and I didn’t want to spend time getting further data, I didn’t know how long each video was, or how much time I had spent/wasted on the video sharing website overall, but knowing how many videos was a starting point.

For June, therefore, I kept a record from the start. Each time I watched a video I logged it, along with the length of the video, and then, at the end of the month I totalled up the time spent, and also counted how many videos I had watched.

Since I had been mindful of the fact that in May I had watched more than 100 videos (on average 3+ videos a day) I was probably more cautious about my viewing, and this is reflected in the fact that in June I watched only 36 videos. Of course, these could have been longer videos and thus the time spent might be similar, but we will never know; I certainly feel I was more self-controlled.

Total time spent watching Youtube videos in June: 738 minutes / 12hrs 20 minutes (it looks worse in this latter format!)

Average time: 25 minutes per day.

Having these two sets of figures, the number of videos and the duration, can give an insight into one’s level of attention, although I do often spread longer videos across two or more sittings.

Coincidentally, I came across a lecture about how we treat others online and the speaker mentioned how internet access around the world is still increasing, as access gained in those rural and impoverished areas that didn’t have it before. It made me wonder about declining access, albeit by choice; since I occasionally come across those (like myself I suppose) who try to limit their time online, or avoid certain popular social networking sites like Facebook, even when they’re the type of people you’d expect to be on there. I don’t think full time access is a healthy thing, and being mindful of our time here is important, along with personally moderating our own access to ensure a productive and active life away from the Net; this is a topic I’ve been interested in for many years, particularly because I’m someone that spent their childhood before the internet was really around.

Anyway, if you want to browse my Youtube viewing list for June, then here it is (putting a particular title into Youtube’s search box should find that video):
