Final Comments:

Just a pasting a youtube link in a post without any dialogue about that video is of little use. If you have watched a video and think it is worth sharing then your opinion about the video is worth something too. If you are to post a video make sure you say something to it, so the reader can decide if it is something that may interest them too. To be effective 300 or more word is ideal. It is important to ensure that words are original not a copy and paste of someone else comments on the subject. You want your article to be read right?
