YouTube Further Cracking Down On Inappropriate Children's Videos
29 November, 2017, 00:52 | Author: Warren Cooper
Many big names such as Adidas, Cadbury, and Duetsche Bank have frozen their ad accounts with the platforms when they found out that their ads were being displayed with abusive content. If you don't know, YouTube Go is a lightweight version of the YouTube with more features such as video downloading and more.
In response, YouTube said, it has terminated more than 50 channels and have removed thousands of videos under its new kid-safe guidelines which it outlined in a blog post titled "5 ways we're toughening our approach to protect families on YouTube and YouTube Kids". The company is also working to fix an issue with its autocomplete feature that returned "s*x with kids" on a search for "how to have", according to Engadget. YouTube revealed to VICE, "Finally, over the past week we removed ads from almost 2 million videos and over 50,000 channels masquerading as family-friendly content", and repeated their opinion that "content that endangers children is abhorrent and unacceptable to us". (Those autocomplete terms appeared to have been removed by Tuesday morning.) The freakish search results may have been the work of trolls who successfully gamed the YouTube search algorithm to make the phrases appear at the top of the autocomplete list, the BuzzFeedreport speculated.
Google said in a statement on Monday, "Earlier today our teams were alerted to this profoundly disturbing autocomplete result, and we worked to remove it as soon as we were made aware quickly".
This is an terrible autocomplete result and we really appreciate you making us aware.
