That appeared to achieve ahead with Paul, who posted a video in Japan in January that featured a suicide suffer and has since adopted that up with the extra questionable content material. This has copped the content creator further criticism from other well-known YouTube creators which questioned his sincerity such as Casey Neistat and Philip DeFranco. In his glorious return, Logan Paul thought tasering rats would be hilarious.
YouTube had said earlier this month that it could hand out harsher punishments to rogue creators and it has now detailed what these punishments might be.
Whenever controversies like this happen, advertisers tend to pull out en masse, crippling those who make a living on YouTube without being massive assholes.
"When one creator does something particularly blatant - like conducts a heinous prank where people are traumatized, promotes violence or hate toward a group, demonstrates cruelty, or sensationalizes the pain of others in an attempt to gain views or subscribers - it can cause lasting damage to the community, including viewers, creators and the outside world", said Ariel Bardin, vice president of YouTube's product management division.
'That damage can have real-world consequences not only to users, but also to other creators, leading to missed creative opportunities, lost revenue and serious harm to your livelihoods. "That's why it's critical to ensure that the actions of a few don't impact the 99.9 percent of you who use your channels to connect with your fans or build thriving businesses".
As it has done with Paul, the Google-owned platform said it will remove monetization options on the videos, specifical access to advertising programs, reported TechCrunch.
American video-sharing website YouTube on Saturday announced that it will remove ads and downgrade discoverability of channels posting offensive videos.
Generally, YouTube reserves the right to hide ads on videos and watch pages including ads from certain advertisers or certain formats. Those include shutting off ad support, deleting YouTube Original videos by the creator and barring channels from being able to be recommended or put on its homepage.
While it' a good step, I think YouTube could solve many of its current problems by just hiring more human moderators instead of relying on algorithms.
