ASMR Community on YouTube is Growing

I’ve noticed lately that there’s quite a community dedicated to the phenomenon we know as ASMR on YouTube. I thought it was just my channel on there that had a playlist and such of collected trigger videos, often recommended by the Facebook Group members. But I’ve learned that there are other channels on YouTube that serve the same purpose, and some have been around for a while longer than the UNF YouTube Channel.

And the two or three I’ve come across also have favourited videos from other channels on their playlist. But I’m still looking for one that has user uploaded videos that are actually intended to trigger ASMR, and not just ones that happen to do it by incident. But this could be difficult seeing as what works for one asmer might not work for another.

An example of this is a channel called The Brain Tickle. On here there are videos that are grouped into this intended trigger collection, and consist of  the unboxing of products and so on. And people often cite that one of their many triggers is the unwrapping of things; the crinkling of paper, etc.

There's also a channel that was recently started that so far has one video that delves in to ASMR in a long, more opinionated point of view that even mentions a couple of the network sites. This is over at asmrgirl’s channel.

However, one of the most common triggers out there, and which is also very prominent on YouTube, is whispering. There are many channels with numerous playlists and videos within them dedicated to this – what I consider one of most pleasant things in the world: whispering. More people need to do this once in a while.

I was recently informed that there’s even a community that’s been set up which revolved around this subject matter. It’s a forum called YouWhisper and is made up of members who have accounts dedicated to whispering on YouTube, or enjoy watching videos of it.

By the way, I thought I would mention that the UNF YouTube Channel has hit a milestone, in being six months old this week. The date it was started was the 23rd of June, 2010. Currently the channel has over 150 videos that have been bookmarked, and it’s approaching 50 subscribers too.

Also, in case I don’t say it later on, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everybody! I’ll likely take a well-earned rest over the Christmas weekend and New Years as well, but over this period I’ll still schedule or publish some posts that I’ve written over the past while.

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
