You can do so much more with it
If you haven’t heard, Smart, Talk N’ Text, and Sun Prepaid subscribers can view videos on YouTube for FREE up to one hour or 1GB per day. That’s a big deal, since watching video sucks up a lot of your data. But before you binge on whatever’s on your subscription list, know that you can use the free 1 hour offer on so much more. Like:
1. Learn a new skill
YouTube is a great place to learn about new things. It’s also a great place to pick up tips and pointers that’ll help you out in life. Learning a new skill used to take a lot of time, effort and most importantly a competent and (sometimes expensive) teacher. While you’ll still need to sink a bunch of time learning a new skill, YouTube has made it so much easier to find willing teachers online, for free. For example, you can start learning how to cook awesome, delicious meals by simply following the steps as narrated by the host. Maybe learn how to fix your car, paint or even make furniture?
2. Watch reviews for EVERYTHING
Aside from providing quality entertainment, YouTube is a platform for reviews for literally anything. While we obviously have to pimp our own YouTube channel here *cough*subscribe to us*cough*, there’s almost a channel for anything. Our EIC Carlo Ople has his own channel where he reviews kicks and sneakers, there’s reviews for movies, cars, gadgets, TVs, books, shows and literally almost anything you can think of.
3. Plan your next trip
If you’re the sort of person that needs to escape the hustle and bustle of the city once in a while to relax and recharge, you’ll definitely need to start watching travel vloggers on YT. Not only can you live vicariously through them, they also have excellent tips and tricks when travelling, as well as access to vacation spots (both here and abroad) that you may not have heard of.
4. Learn about history
Many of you probably skipped history lessons when you were in school, but learning about the past is an important part of planning for the future. Understanding the events of the past explains many of the things that’s happening in the future, and learning about history is infinitely more enjoyable when it’s presented through a visually stimulating medium versus a professor droning in a stuffy classroom.
5. Make yourself smarter/learn a new language
The great thing about YouTube is that there’s literally thousands of great educational channels that’ll blow your mind if you just let them. There’s plenty of YouTube creators in the video app that tries to educate as well as entertain, and once in a while they produce videos that’ll truly change the way you see things.
YouTube also makes it easier for you to learn a new language, and while there’s no replacing actually talking to someone in the language of your choice YouTube language tutorials make the process so much easier. There’s so much free material available in the streaming site of whatever language you need, including Spanish, Chinese, German and French.
