Why do people care so much about usernames?


#1

I was just wondering since I’ve seen so many things about usernames… Why do people care so much about usernames? Isn’t it about the videos that you post and not about your name?

because you can build a brand around it.

Ultimately youre right, they dont matter much. But a good usernamr can help. If you have a super good one like “comedy” or your first name, its a lot better than Elel_6689_ox

Content is king but the little boosts or having the same user on many platforms can benefit

Yeah, sometimes you want something easy to remember, something to describe you, or something with a ring to it.

For instance, arf! I’ve only ever heard dogs say that before…

My mother didn’t go through all this trouble to give me a unique name just so it can be taken by someone else on an app.

many people build a business around a username like @theirname and If u get manage to get the same username for all platforms it’s easier for your supporters to find you
