I'm 33 and I use YouTube WAY more then Netflix. Despite how much content Netflix has, there's just not as much in interested in. Most of the YouTube channels I watch upload new content daily or several times a week. On Netflix you binge watch something in a few days then that's it until the next thing.

generally a YouTube video is much shorter in length so taking a 10 min break for example makes YouTube a better option.
