YouTube Comes Up With A New Refresher On How Its Platform and Policies Work

YouTube has become a nerve center for almost every topic that is trending. People visit YouTube to learn, get information, and implement themselves. YouTube provides another version that is kids friendly, called “YouTube Kids”. Under this, YouTube keeps a strict check on the content that is uploaded. It doesn’t allow any 18+ content or something to which kids shouldn’t be exposed. Such content is called age-restricted content.

While every social media platform is coming up with something new, how YouTube could stay behind? YouTube came up with a blog post in which they answered every query they get daily. The most common query was “How YouTube Works”. Under this blog, they revealed their strategies to choose ads, recommend videos, and trending videos.

How YouTube Works is a new page, created by YouTube to explain their policies, strategies, terms and conditions, and a lot more.

In its policies section, YouTube disclosed rules about its monetization policy, recommendations, or suggested videos, privacy, and appearance of Ads. In their policies, they also laid stress on sensitive content. They explained that what type of content one should upload and what type of content a user should avoid uploading. Being a responsible forum, YouTube doesn’t support harmful and offensive content. Any content that is violating YouTube policies gets removed.

They further explained how they evaluate content that has to be removed. It is evaluated through the following means:
  • Automated Flagging
  • Specific Trusted Flagger
  • NGO
  • Government Agency
  • User
Trusted Flagger is the YouTube trusted source that includes NGOs or government agencies that are committed to play their vital role in stiffing the genuine content among the policy-violating ones.

Not only this but YouTube sometimes removes the video if it gets no views or below then 10 views.

YouTube is a source of awareness for people. Many people have started their channel. For example, Ryleigh Hawkins a citizen of New Zealand started her channel. Her videos were informative, humors yet joyful. She earned an indefinite number of followers from all around the world.

YouTube is not only a source of complicated or humorous information; instead, it solves daily life problems too. i.e. how to fix a broken garage door or how to solve a mathematics problem.
