Google is attempting “to fix YouTube content” that exists in a sort of gray area. It’s content that doesn’t violate the site’s policies. But it does contain controversial religious or supremacist content YouTube want’s to hide.
Flagged videos will be relegated to a limited state. In a purgatory where they’ll be less visible to the casual browser. Never appear in automated recommendations. And lose out on features like comments, likes, and suggested videos.
While we agree that Terrorist and ISIS recruitment videos should be taken down. This new policy will no doubt wreak havoc on Conservative, Critics, Corporate Naysayers, and other Video classes to be determined after being flagged.. 😡
Many videos uploaded to YouTube without monitinazation are already being rated at “low quality” and are already in a limited state, per say. Google is probably making note of this new policy due to legal concerns about hiding publishers videos in search.
