Is "Newtubers" or reddit in general good or bad? I'm scared.

    So I've been trying to find more forums to be active on so I can get to know new people, and maybe get some fresh eyes that I haven't reached to let me know what they think as well as help if I can. I've seen mixed reviews of reddit. Some people think it's great, but some say that people are harsh there. I'm just wondering is it worth becoming a part of that community, or will it end up hurting me in the long (or short) run?

    Anyone have experience there?
    Any suggested options?

    If you want to go into reddit, you should treat it as any other forum, as to be active before posting your videos. If you don´t, then the people will be harsh.
    It also depends on who s the moderator on the specific subreddit, I have been banned for posting 2 videos, while others have been posting a lot more!

    In my experience, I post to any subreddit my videos are associated with and it can gain both types of feedback, negative and positive, I've gained views and likes, which is also good as it's promotion in a way :).

    I've used newtubers in the past, it's kind of a poor mans YTTalk in general. But with the added bonus people can downvote eachother.

    Reddit in general can be good but that sub reddit is a bit eh.

    The newtubers subreddit become REALLY strict a while back. They absolutely hate promotion now. And like DigiBox said, it's a poor mans YTTalk.

    but when you build a relationship with someone or help out people without really anything in return, you don't really have to promote. Sometimes people get curious, or they like you as a person and they check you out. I do it all the time. (being curious and checking people out I mean) You network that way-in a way. Being active in the forums probably get you further than just dumping your video. If you look in the video section there are LOTS of videos with zero comments. You're not really getting much out of that, but I could be wrong because I find myself going to the persons channel instead of just staying here. So that's good-but still. That alone isn't going to help. So them being strict isn't necessarily a deal breaker in my opinion.

    Reddit is okay, but very few subreddits allow you to really post a bunch of videos, or even self-promote. They are very strict with that type of stuff, so if you don't want to promote where you really need to research what you'll say or do with each post; I would maybe recommend Facebook Groups/Pages, they are much more relaxed with sharing or promoting, especially if you're in a community with a similar topic or just youtube themed in general.

    True that:up2:...........That being said you can gain A LOT of subscribers by using Reddit...Some of my videos that are doing the best I promoted on Reddit (it seems "provoking" videos are doing really well there) but be aware that people can be VERY harsh on reddit but if you don´t mind you should give a go IMO..

    I'll probably dip a toe it. It couldn't hurt, right? I mean it probably could with the wrong moves, but I don't stir the pot too much as it is so I think I could be okay maybe. :nailbiting:

    I started trying to find resources to just read tips for newer youtubers on how to up your editing game and create better content and so obviously stumbled upon /r/Newtubers but I think it tends to stick to only a few genres of video or at least only a couple of genres are the norm and i would be a bit nervous to post there if your channel is totally different to what they normally talk about.

    That being said, people do seem to get responses when requesting for criticism and feedback so it might be very helpful for you!
