The Ethereum Foundation (EF) Youtube channel should probably be linked next to the Github and Twitter. The Youtube is free marketing and education. Additionally, impersonating Ethereum channels are being used to run scams. Having a link to the official Youtube in the website should help with that.

Describe the solution you'd like

Add a link to the EF Youtube.

Describe alternatives you've considered

The footer is probably the best location for a link. If the footer gets too crowded, a column based layout for the footer can be used.

Example of columned footer:

Additional context

The EF Twitter, which is linked, has half a million followers.

While the EF Youtube, which isn't linked, only has about 30k followers.

Additionally, several fake Ethereum accounts exist on YouTube. Here's a fake EF Youtube which had about 3 million followers before it was taken down. That channel was often used to perform scams, impersonating Ethereum.

Having the YouTube linked in the website should bring clarity worldwide as to which account is the official Ethereum YouTube account.
