Why do people say YouTube is social media?

There’s nothing social about making and watching videos since anyone can make and watch videos even anti social/asocial people.

    I think it's not social media, it's one kind of search platforms. there you can get a lot of informative video articles.

    It IS social media. You can make a short video or a long video and people can reply, just like on facebook and twitter where you can make a long post or a short post and people can reply. The act of people being social doesn't make something social media, what its made for does.

    It doesn't qualify as social media but with billions of users, the video content you share becomes viral through the users present on this platform. Your content, if Youtube users find it interesting, will definitely be shared on a social media. So, there is no direct link but indrirectly Youtube fuels social media.

     Yes YouTube is considered a social media platform. What's more, it is also the 2nd most-used search engine following Google. ... For the record, YouTube is used in this fashion primarily by the younger generation, and not as frequently as those who might actually have the resources to become a customer.

    It's because anyone can post a video there and express their opinion it's interactive.  And people can leave their opinions there and comment.  

    It's internet based and interactive therefore it's part of social media.

    You can post comments or reply to somebody elses comments, sounds like social media to me.

    People get upset about stuff like racial and political issues or even a sporting competition and once the abuse starts it just keeps going.Although there is an option to turn off comments it seems like few users choose to use it.
