I wonder whether we should actually consider YouTube as a social network in its own right.

Thanks for your comment!

Many social networks have some elements in common. YouTube has many of them and it’s also the 2nd largest search engine (only after Google). True, categorizing YouTube solely as a social network would be a reductive, but it is a social platform and much more: User submitted content, users who view other user submitted content, Likes, messaging, sharing, comments, direct messages, groups..
