YouTube claims its new provision are helping to receive new success
Youtube is benefiting from enforcing its own moderation rules. The company blames graphic violence, scams, or hate speech on the site for its declining number of subscribers.
Last year, up to 18 out of every 10,000 views on YouTube were on videos that violate the company’s policies and should have removed before anyone watched them. That’s down from 72 out of every 10,000 views in the fourth quarter of 2017, when YouTube started tracking the figure.
While they measure how well YouTube is doing at limiting the spread of troubling clips, they’re ultimately based on what videos YouTube believes should be removed from its platform and the company still allows some troubling clips to stay up.
