YouTubers are risking their lives for our clicks

Interviewed: YouTubers Risking Lives for Clicks

Why are YouTubers, like social media influencer Jeff Wittek, risking their lives for clicks?

Like all things related to human motivation, the answer (much like an onion) has multiple layers.

See my (abridged) response, as a cyberpsychology source, on the Mic article here.

Expanded response

Due to submission deadlines and word count limits, the breadth of my original comments shared with the journalist for the Mic piece could not be used in their entirety.

Therefore, I’ll be writing a supplementary post that will include more context and detail pertaining to YouTuber’s risking their lives for clicks in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

For the time being, I appreciate the writer, Jessica Lucas, for having sought me out as a cyberpsychology source.

I’d also like to thank Mic for publishing an insightful piece on a timely topic.
