YouTube's problem with dodgy videos is about much more than just porn

YouTube's problem with dodgy videos is about much more than just porn

"We rely on teams from around the world to review flagged videos and remove content that violates our terms; restrict videos (e.g., age-restrict content that may not be appropriate for all audiences); or leave the content live when it doesn't violate our guidelines", YouTube said.

In the final quarter of past year 8,284,039 videos were removed from the site for breaking community guidelines.

Additionally, the video sharing platform revealed the top 10 countries from which it receives the most human flagged video reports. The streamer says that this technology is helping it quickly remove "high-risk low-volume" clips that can be characterized as containing "extremist views".

It further added, "We're also introducing a Reporting History dashboard that each YouTube user can individually access to see the status of videos they've flagged to us for review against our Community Guidelines".

Dividend Stock With Analysts Upside: General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS)
It increased, as 56 investors sold GIS shares while 388 reduced holdings. 107 funds amassed holdings and 288 increased holdings. It operates through three divisions: Consumer Banking and Private Wealth Management, Wholesale Banking, and Mortgage Banking.

YouTube has been heavily criticized in the past for issues with video and commenting moderation. In June of previous year, the machine learning was introduced, and now 50% of videos removed for violent extremism have fewer than 10 views. After YouTube started using its machine-learning algorithms in June 2017, however, it says that percentage increased to more than 50% (in a footnote, YouTube clarified that this data does not include videos that were automatically and flagged before they could be published and therefore received no views). Among the total removed videos, about 6.7 million were flagged by machines only.

During that same period, 9.3 million videos were flagged by people, with almost 95% coming from YouTube users and the rest from its Trusted Flagger program and government agencies or NGOs. Most were flagged for sexual content (30.1%) or spam (26.4%). Of the videos flagged by users, 1.6% were due to the video promoting terrorism.

YouTube also reviewed its progress with machine learning to examine videos.

FINALLY. @YouTube's new transparency report breaks out content flags by category.
