YouTube shares first quarterly report on video takedowns, new Reporting dashboard

"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.

Following its announcement to clean up its community earlier this year, YouTube revealed in its new Community Guidelines quarterly report that some 8-million videos were removed from the platform between October and December last year.

A Reporting History dashboard has been introduced so users can individually access to see the status of videos they've flagged to us for review against our Community Guidelines. YouTube realized its mistake after being asked about the video by The Guardian. As per YouTube machine learning has given aid in removing videos in "high-risk, low-volume areas like violent extremism" quickly.

Additionally, 6.7-million of those videos were flagged by machines, and 76% of those videos were removed before any YouTube customer could view it.

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.

By the end of 2018, Google plans to have 10,000 employees focussed on removing unacceptable content.

"Deploying machine learning actually means more people reviewing content, not fewer".

However, YouTube further explained that while the algorithms can delete some content on their own, such as spam videos, it mostly forwards anything it suspects is in violation of their guidelines to human reviewers.

In its report, YouTube gave more information about how those algorithms work.

YouTube's report may not ameliorate the concerns of content creators who saw their revenue drop during what they refer to as the "Adpocalpyse" or help them figure out how to monetize successfully again.
