YouTube content creators should produce positive content, says speaker at ASMIS

Social commentator Omar Hussein shared his experience of creating YouTube content on the second day of the Arab Social Media Influencers Summit (ASMIS) at a session titled ‘YouTube Creators for Change’ hosted by Diana Baddar of YouTube.

At the beginning of the session, Bader said that 50% of youth feel that YouTube videos helped them change their lives, a statistic that puts a high level of responsibility on the creators of videos. She also said that the volume of YouTube content from the Arab world, which is already huge, has been growing steadily.

Comedian Omar Hussein shared his experience of creating the ‘Al-Haq Yankal’ programme on the ‘Sahi’ channel on YouTube. He said that content posted on YouTube has grown dramatically over the last few years.

Hussein said that content developers have a huge responsibility, and should produce and promote positive content. He also said that there are a number of humanitarian initiatives that he plans to launch soon including a visit to the Al Zatari refugee camp.

The two-day Arab Social Media Influencers Summit concluded today at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The event was sponsored by du, DEWA, Emirates NBD, Dubai Internet City, and Audi.
