    Is YouTube healthy for our industry?

    What are some of the good and bad things about seeing bowling equipment repairs on YouTube.

    Yes, YouTube is healthy for our industry.
    No, YouTube for one reason or another is not healthy.
    I'm not sure.

    Good when the content is accurate and not misleading or overtly unsafe.
    Bad when the content is sketchy and or dangerous especially to the uninformed.

    Since the uninformed as well as the educated go to YouTube for various reasons, not sure which side wins.

        I would assume so. That way people don't have to just visualize words from the posts. Pictures and step by step videos go a long way for sure.

          I also agree with loadtoad concerning safety and using correct procedures.

          But, to touch on another aspect of our "industry", I could spend hours watching old videos of the PBA, back in a day when professional bowling was as big as professional golf. Back in a day when bowling meant more than bumpers, music, and flashing lights. Don't get me wrong, I realize that these things are helping keep the "industry" alive, but I sure miss some of the old days.

            I love the videos it gives the viewer better instructions. I learn a lot of stuff on YouTube from rebuilding car engines to waxing floors.
            Keep an eye on it see if it does it again
