That's just it though. They're not just "online personalities" and that was my point. Unless we're about to get perhaps the craziest reveal of all time, they're actual people who are in part video game enthusiasts and create videos and stream together. There's nothing requiring them to be "smart about social media" or anything else, especially if that ends up meaning converting their entire daily focus to being said online personalities and "like and subscribe" and such.This is a pretty disingenuous comment considering all of the posts by myself and others about the social media use from the allies was strictly from a business perspective with the aim of getting more people engaged and hopefully aware of and supporting the group.
None of us have said they don't work hard and to also suggest that because they are working hard that means they don't have to use social media in a smart way for their business is pretty ridiculous considering how vital social media is to businesses in 2019, especially online personalities.
I know the thread has moved on but holy shit is this is some ludicrous hyperbole. Patreon is about supporting artists not investing in a sweatshop.
What a giant, shitty move. I download my MP3s to a DAP. I don't listen to them off of a phone. I don't have a place to use their fucking app. What a giant pile of bullshit.
love short form scripted but off the cuff streams are easy to produce - with multiple allies in the room i expect a lot of fun. i'm psyched for what's been announced so far!
Their business isn't built on youtube views though. It's built on Patreon. I probably won't watch too many of the streams either, but it's what a lot of fans have asked for (on here as well) and I totally get why they did this.
