    I use it almost daily. The amount of educational and instructional information that's available is amazing.
    Do you want to see a Heart Bypass operation or how to fix a Leaky Toilet. What's A Cochlear Implant? You Tube's got it.

    Several times a week, but mostly when I am looking for a video of a song that I am listening to, so that I can post it in the thread about which song you're listening to. While I am listening to those songs, I am not usually listening to them on Youtube.

    Hardly. If at all, then occasionally for DIY.

    It’s a lot easier to go to YouTube for instructions when I’m dealing with something mechanical instead of looking for a manual.

    Other than the above, “TED talks” always has some type of lecture or symposium that might pique my interests and several major colleges and universities have free classes and lectures that I like to attend. MIT had a 6 part quantum physics class that kept me glued to the screen. I used my Ipad to take notes and watched the lectures on the Dell.

    When I get a bit bored, there are also a lot of free full length movies that I have enjoyed. Most of them are older, such as a string of John Wayne movies like Rio Lobo, McClintock, etc., but there are times when watching something again is just as pleasurable as it was the first time.

    Sorry I am a YT junky. I follow many people who keep me updated on what is going on in the world. The TV is never turned on and there is no local news papers here. I find that the whole world is waking around with their cell phones turn on just ready to get the next news scoop. Then they normally put it on YT or people will be doing live streams from some riot or protest and you can see what happened before the news media distorts it.

    You betcha .. YouTube can be your friend in many ways. Hubby loves it for instructional videos and almost all things wildlife. I love it for instructional videos, funny videos, music and interviews.

    I certainly has evolved into quite the easy access "library" of life !

    Not a lot, but enough. To see old Classic Rock bands playing, like Three Dog Night. Also for instructional purposes. But, almost didn't get my hip replacement done, when I watched a YouTube video of it being done.

    I don't personally use it much but Bubba loves watching videos on it. I have used it occasionally, for instance, to see how to clear a paper jam from my printer.

    This is exactly what i do as well, although now, I find that people are reporting from all over in the patriot/Trump groups that I belong to, so I check in with those fairly often each day, and usually more often than I check in with Youtube.
    Besides news and world information, I like watching videos about ancient history, pyramids, and some of the other old monuments that exist in this world and we don’t really understand what it all means, to this day.

    I also like youtube for recipes, because you can actually watch the person make the food, and see what it looks like as it is cooking, and not just follow a list of ingredients from a recipe book.
    As everyone else has mentioned, there seems to be a video (or 100’s) on youtube for just about anything a person wants to know about, or find directions for, and I like the tutorials , too.

    I was able to see actual filming of 1953 & 1955 bases where I was stationed in Korea & French Morocco. I recognized buildings jet fighter and B 47 bombers that I worked on.
