YouTube videos won’t make you an expert overnight

New York, March 8: Watching YouTube videos, Instagram demos and Facebook tutorials may boost your confidence in performing a task but it probably would not make you an expert overnight, suggests new research. Social media platforms have made it easy to record, share, and access instructional videos, but merely watching them without practicing the demonstrated skills may not actually improve our ability to perform them, according to the findings . “Our findings suggest that merely watching others could cause people to attempt skills that they might not be ready or able to perform themselves,” Kardas said.
