After Facebook, another social media platform is about to bring new changes in its site:
After the Logan Paul controversy, YouTube is trying to reassure advertisers by pledging to “manually review” a significant portion of the videos on its website.
VIDEO BLOGGER FACED SEVERE CRITICISM:
Logan Paul; a popular YouTube star, ‘vlogger’ whose channels have a combined 20 million followers, was punished by YouTube for uploading controversial video on his channel, which he now addresses it as his mistake.
In his video, Logan Paul was seen filming Japan’s Aokigahara forest also known as “suicide forest.” But. The video became scandalous when a showed a corpse hanging from a tree.
The video was seen by millions of people and many were outraged claiming that the YouTube star did this for view. Denying the blame, Paul tweeted that, “I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity…I intended to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention and while I thought ‘if this video saves just ONE life, it’ll be worth it,’ I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video. I still am.”
YouTube faced a lot of criticism for not taking a punishing action against, but now, the company is aiming to establish ‘manually curated’ system and goal is to place more than 10,000 reviewers in 2018.
