Alphabet Inc's YouTube said on Dec. 4 it plans to add more people next year to identify inappropriate content as the company responds to criticism over extremist, violent and disturbing videos and comments.
YouTube introduced changes to its rules for videos in which all children were removed, reports kaldata.
YouTube will now block these videos that show real or fake bullying over children or family members. These videos will be removed and the comment space blocked. BuzzFeed alerted YouTube about the problem on November 21st.
YouTube has removed nearly 50,000 videos featuring radical Islamist preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a drone strike in 2011, reported BBC.
Awlaki was renowned for preaching violence as a religious duty, although at the time of his death his family denied he was a terrorist.
The remaining videos are mainly documentaries and news items, reports the New York Times.
The YouTube TV platform is a massive negative item in the YouTube budget, says an analyst. Reports Kaldata.
According to Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia, YouTube TV is probably losing money from every one of its subscribers. The reason is that much more money is paid for new content than earned from subscription fees.
