Your family knows you. Your friends know you. But now thanks to social media, lots of other people can get to know you, too. Sharing your life on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube has become very popular. Kids (and adults) who put videos up on YouTube are called YouTubers.
家人認識你、朋友認識你， 現在因為有社群媒體，很多素昧平生的人也開始認識你。許多大人和小孩，都喜歡在臉書、Instagram 及YouTube上分享生活點滴。把影片上傳到YouTube 跟大家分享的人，就叫YouTuber。
Lots of people put videos on YouTube. Some people get famous quickly. Have you ever heard of a channel called FullTimeKid with Mya? How about EvanTubeHD? These kid YouTube stars make videos that are so interesting that both kids and adults subscribe. Mya makes videos that teach you to do experiments and crafts. Evan shows you toys and does silly challenges.
Not all YouTube channels are safe for children, even if kids appear in the videos. YouTube is trying to be more careful about the kinds of videos people can put up. Recently, one channel called ToyFreak was banned because the videos showed too much violence which taught kids bad lessons.
If you just like watching YouTube videos, that’s okay too. The videos are usually short. That means you can learn about many different things quickly. You can also find specific videos on whatever you’re interested in. Unfortunately, YouTube has lots of annoying advertisements and sometimes they’re hard to recognize.
如果你不上傳，只是喜歡看YouTube 影片，那也很好，因為YouTube 影片通常不長，看影片可以讓你很快學到新東西。你也可以在YouTube 找到感興趣的特定主題影片。但很不幸的，YouTube 裡有太多惱人的廣告，而且麻煩的是，有些影片讓你看不出是廣告。
Think carefully before you share! Your video could make you very popular, but it could also get you into big trouble.
People are not always nice on the Internet. Think about turning off the comments for your videos.
Before you share your YouTube channel with the whole world, try sharing it with your friends and family first.
Some people say things on the internet to start a fight or hurt other people’s feelings on purpose. That’s called trolling.
When a video or image on the internet becomes so popular that everyone shares it, we say that it’s trending.
