Gizchina News of the week

During Wojcicki’s tenure, YouTube underwent many changes and innovations, making it difficult to summarize them all. However, let’s focus on the decisions made in the last few months that had the greatest impact on the convenience of using the platform.

One of the changes that caused controversy was the elimination of the downvote counter. Google wanted to prevent harassment of new creators. And conducted an experiment that showed that users are less likely to give negative ratings when the counter is invisible. However, the lack of showing the number of negative ratings aroused ridicule among some YouTube users and the creators themselves.

Like other popular online platforms, YouTube has been focusing more than before on fighting disinformation. And removing videos that do not comply with the platform’s rules. The site has removed materials linking the 5G network with the coronavirus, promoting hatred and conspiracy theories. However, the website itself has made mistakes while cleaning up the platform, such as deleting popular science channels.
