YouTube is reportedly thinking about a significant shift –to keep kids (along with the platform ) easier.
In addition, a few at YouTube have considered disabling the suggested video algorithm on these childrens’ videos which gives viewers choices for information to eat.
YouTube hasn’t even verified those ideas could be enacted, but a spokesperson told the paper, “We believe plenty of ideas for improving YouTube and a few remain just that–thoughts. ”
There’s little doubt, though, that YouTube always finds itself under fire for the products consumed and made by kids. A report earlier this month stated that YouTube’s algorithm has been assisting pedophiles watch videos of young kids . That prompted YouTube to change its own livestreaming policy, disallowing those to broadcast themselves live with no adult present. The New York Times noted that YouTube had altered its algorithm .
“Responsibility is our No. 1 priority, and principal one of our areas of focus is protecting minors and households,” YouTube composed in a blog article about June 3.
That came three months after YouTube disabled the comments section for videos involving kids, deleting that section tens of millions of videos which had been uploaded and leading to an outcry from a family vloggers who rely on a playful comments section to enhance visibility and engagement.
Back in February, a variety of advertisers, including Disney, stopped doing business with YouTube following a softcore pedophile ring has been found on the platform. A couple of months before it was found precisely how widespread it was for creepy comments to seem on videos involving underage girls.
Some of the current changes have led popular 13-year-old ASMR founder Makenna Kelly to leave the stage for discriminating against her and for ignoring her claims an adult YouTuber “sexually cyberbullied” her.
“It’s just sad it’s come for the,” Kelly told the Daily Dot earlier this month. “I was such a proud YouTuber. ”
The YouTube Kids program hasn’t been immune from problems . Since 2017, the program has subjected its young viewers to bizarre conspiracy theories along with other disturbingly disgusting movies of kids characters that put them in violent or sexual circumstances.
As the Journal points out, a possible change of the caliber would alter the sort of articles you find YouTube’s website. But maybe this ’s exactly what YouTube executives feel needs to be done in order to squash the issues.
“YouTube is a business composed of parents and families, and also we ’ll always do whatever we can to avoid any usage of our platform which attempts to exploit or undermine minors,” the organization wrote in its June blog post. “Kids and families deserve the best protection we must provide: We’re dedicated to investing at the teams and technology to make sure they purchase it. ”
