YouTube Vows Consequences for ‘Egregious’ Video Makers
YouTube recently announced that it will be changing its policies and developing sanctions to deal with video makers who produce egregious content that damage the reputation of the platform.
The decision came after a hugely popular content creator named Logan Paul made a video where he reportedly made fun of a dead body in Japan’s “suicide forest”. Paul had since been removed from the Google Preferred program which sells premium ads for video makers in the top 5%.
YouTube had been using algorithms to prevent showing ads on controversial content, but CEO Susan Wojcicki said that they may start to ad more human moderators to be able to review videos better.
