Youtube Demonetizing Videos – That Are Not Family Friendly

Youtube demonetizing videos that are not family friendly, is another wave of Youtube demonitization practices. Youtube claims that they have a five step process to combat what they consider NOT family friendly content. This Google company has removed thousands of videos and removed fifty Youtube channels.

Youtube has implemented age restriction now. Content that is flagged as age restricted will NOT be viewable if you are NOT logged into your Youtube account, under the age of eighteen, or have restricted mode enabled. Also, Youtube is going to begin using automated tools, including artificial intelligence, to find and escalate the human review of these types of not family friendly videos.

In June of this year, Youtube started removing ads from content that they deem not advertiser friendly. This company claims they have now removed 3 million ads from their platform. These ads were removed because they were showing up on "...inappropriate videos targeting families...".

Google's Youtube claims that they are working on removing ads from an additional 500,000 thousand videos. Another way Youtube is trying to make their platform more family friendly is to block what they deem inappropriate comments on videos featuring children under 18.

In the past Youtube was removing these types of comments via human flagging and automation. Now Youtube claims that they will now disable all comments from these types of videos, where inappropriate comments referring to children under 18 are seen. Youtube created Youtube Kids as a way to perhaps funnel family friendly content.

Youtube now partners with alleged experts, whom have been helping them flag certain non family friendly content. Youtube is now going to allegedly double these so called "trusted flaggers". I was not able to independently verify this but supposedly Youtube has removed 150,000 videos because of this so called not family friendly content.

Also, allegedly companies like Adidas, Hewlett Packard, and Mars decided to pause ads from displaying on Youtube because of this type of video content.

Internet Net Neutrality – Repeal Planned by FCC

The Federal Communications Commission is planning on repealing the Internet net neutrality rules. I do NOT waste time in participating in politics. The Democrats and Republicans to me are the same.

Having said that the current Donald Trump administration is meeting with the Federal Communications Commission to over turn net neutrality. Internet Net Neutrality was first imposed in 2015. Basically, Internet net neutrality was designed to heavily regulate Internet service providers.

These rules blocked Internet service providers from throttling bandwidth, blocking applications or websites, and generally meddling with customers Internet access. These types of regulation would be removed and the Internet would be monitered similarly to before 2015. These Internet service providers like Comcast, Level 3, Verizon, etc. would have to report their actions.

For example instead of being barred from throttling Internet traffic, Internet service providers would have to report this Internet traffic throttling. The Federal Trade Commission would step in and regulate these Internet service providers instead. For the first 20 years of the Internet, basically, the Federal Trade Commission monitered the Internet.

Under Internet Net Neutrality, the Internet was considered a public utility. Now, the Republican led Federal Communications Commission wants to repeal this decision. The current Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai is a Republican.

Three out of the five Federal Communications Commission members are Republicans. Like I stipulated earlier I do NOT participate in politics because to me it is rigged. However, it is interesting that now Internet Net Neutrality may be repealed after just two years.

Perhaps, you might want to read the proposed changes. The original Internet Net Neutrality regulations encompassed 400 pages. The five Federal Communications Commission commissioners will vote on December 14, 2017.

Even if they entirely repeal Internet Net Neutrality, future lawsuits could delay the repeal. The Internet Net Neutrality repeal to me would just revert back the way the government was regulating the Internet before. Also, these Internet service providers would supposedly become transparent with their decisions.

The current Internet as we know it was created by the United States military, more specifically the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
