When it comes to social media such as YouTube there is thousands if not hundreds of thousands of video ebeggars. YouTube introduced the ability to have a donation button and now splits the profits from advertising. While getting a check from Google is a form of compensation, it is not really a job.
Anyone who accepts donations is not necessarily an e-beggar. Getting donations and living on the backs of others is not a job as well. If at any point in time, you need people to send you money in order to fix a problem in your life, or to let you do something you’ve never done before…..you could be an e-beggar. If your money that was just given to you by a flood of supporters is none of anyone else’s business, then there is a problem. The older generations like the baby boomers tend to call this type of person a mooch or a leech.
There are some that will argue that YouTube channels offer entertainment and thus giving them money is ok. People who are featured on this website meet a certain type of criteria. That criteria is normally met after a pattern of deceit is found, any type of pathological behavior followed by narcissistic behavior. I like to think we offer a form of accountability to those that are not being truthful.
