Strange times...  :suspious:

YouTube will no longer allow videos that "maliciously insult someone" based on "protected attributes" such as race, gender identity or sexuality.
The video-sharing platform will also ban "implied threats of violence" as part of its new harassment policy.

"Even if a single video doesn't cross the line, with our new harassment policy we can take a pattern of behaviour into account for enforcement," Neal Mohan, chief product officer at YouTube stated.


Not sure what drove them to this decision but it should help keep some sort of order and help reinforce  a decent level of behaviour from the content creators.

this is going on too... basically there is going to be a huge purge of youtube users in the future... even channels that would otherwise be completely harmless are going to be gone..

On Tuesday afternoon, YouTube formally announced its plan to have creators label any videos of theirs that may appeal to children. Starting in January 2020, if creators mark a video as directed at kids, data collection will be blocked for all viewers, resulting in lower ad revenue, and those videos will lose some of the platform’s most popular features, including comments and end screens. It’s a major change in how YouTube works, and has left some creators clueless as to whether they’re subject to the new rules.

Reached by The Verge, Google confirmed that this new system was the result of a landmark $170 million settlement YouTube reached with the Federal Trade Commission in September for allegedly violating children’s privacy. It’s the largest fine ever collected under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which forbids collecting data from children under the age of 13 without explicit consent from their parents. In this case, the ruling means YouTube can’t employ its powerful ad-targeting system on anyone who might be under the age of 13 — a dire problem for a platform with so many young users.

The new system is already sending creators reeling over what exactly is considered kids’ content and what could happen if they unintentionally mislabel videos. Some of YouTube’s most popular categories falls into a gray area for the policy, including gaming videos, family vlogging, and toy reviews.

With both of these moves to contend with we might see the share price of the platform take a fall as well as a loss of some of the more useful video creators whom can no longer monetise their content, as always when a fine is levied by an agency, who gets to keep that cash ??

Answers on a postcard anyone  :whistle:

youtube has -never- been profitable... its been in the red year after year ever since google bought it... they are trying to get mainstream (crap on tv) programming so they can actually make money (or die trying)... course that gets rid of the 'you' part of 'youtube' but nothing good lasts forever...
