YouTube Removes Ads from Anti-Vaccine Channels

YouTube Removes Ads from Anti-Vaccine Channels

This time, it's how videos of minors are being used to create what one video blogger called a "soft-core pedophilia ring".

Some leading firms stopped shopping for commercials on YouTube after their advertisements appeared on movies the place pedophiles littered the remark sections, The New York Times reported Wednesday. Free Hess has revealed that a video of a man instructing kids how to commit suicide has been found on YouTubeKIds.

Most shocking of all, Watson shows that videos of this nature were monetized and ran ads from YouTube's advertising partners. There have been other incidents since then.

That's because the Alphabet Inc. search giant is just so vital to advertising that no company that wants to reach consumers can survive without them, said one ad agency executive who asked not to be identified because the agency often works closely with Google. The platform's scale is simply too vast to ignore.

But last week, just a month later, the company once again boycotted YouTube amid a new scandal.

YouTube disabled feedback on tens of hundreds of thousands of movies that includes children and eliminated 1000's of offensive feedback on related content material, Cho mentioned. That insanely big number represents the size and scale of both the opportunity and risk facing brand advertisers.

Hess said she spotted another version of the same video on YouTube Kids in July a year ago. There is no ultimate fix.

Since the backlash in 2017, YouTube has outlined steps it is taking to improve safety on its Kids app.

For its part, YouTube has responded pretty quickly.

The videos were already deemed harmful content under the company's policies, but had slipped through the site's filters and continued to make money through advertising. This whole situation began when YouTube creator Matt Watson posted a video bringing this controversy to light.

The issue has been circulating the YouTube platform for several days.

Social platforms have distanced from making these decisions.

A YouTube spokesperson told AdWeek, "Any content-including comments-that endangers minors is abhorrent, and we have clear policies prohibiting this on YouTube. We enforce these policies vigorously, and if we find a video that violates them, we immediately take action and remove ads", a YouTube spokesperson said in an email statement to BuzzFeed News.

While YouTube said in a statement that its policies extend to any content, including comments, incidents have typically focused more on the quality of YouTubes videos.

Despite being criticized by the majority of the creators, some came out in the defense of YouTube.

Let's hope YouTube solve the problem soon.
