YouTube Will Stop Showing the Number of Dislikes Under the Video Uploaded
YouTube decided to make changes to its own rules and will now stop showing the total number of dislikes under the video. At the same time, the opportunity to put a dislike still remains. The company's blog reports that the counting of dislikes will become confidential and will only be seen by content owners in YouTube Studio. This will allow the creators of the video to navigate the preferences of users.
For all users, changes will gradually begin to appear starting from November 10. The complete shutdown will take some time. YouTube believes that this innovation will help create a society where everyone respects each other.
It was reported that the company conducted an experiment this summer and found that the lack of dislikes had a positive effect on user behavior. Thus, they do not put a thumbs down just because of a bad attitude towards the author and not the video itself. In addition, the team reported that often people do not watch a particular video, relying on a large number of dislikes.
