YouTube's new Intelligence Desk will help it find inappropriate videos before they go viral
YouTube has run into some problems recently by allowing videos posted by extremists to contain ads from big corporations. This made it appear as though these firms were supporting radical agendas, which resulted in unwanted controversy for these businesses. In addition, to help prevent inappropriate videos from posting on the site, YouTube will add 10,000 new content moderators before this year comes to an end.
In an attempt to regain support from advertisers, YouTube announced earlier this week that those who want to be paid for creating videos will have to hit certain viewership benchmarks. They will need to have their content streamed for more than 4,000 hours of total watch time over the previous 12 months, and have at least 1,000 subscribers.
