It should also be noted that the terms specifically state the company can terminate a user’s Google account as well. As written, a YouTuber can lose their Gmail, Google Photos, Documents, and more just for “no longer being commercially viable” on the video platform.
Maybe mate, never really thought about it that way.Some people argue that it might be to block adblocker users.
Although i would assume they would warn those users, considering that is probably more than half of them xD
So yeah, i don't think it would be used to fight adblocker. But it could now be used to fight a political agenda. Every extreme right or extreme left channel might get blocked, with the story that companies don't want their adds on those video's and thus they are no longer commercially viable.
From that kids stuff, it really asks whether or not it is made especially for kids. Not if it is safe for kids.I can't say much on the account termination thing, I only assume it's for removing inactive accounts or extremist ones, have to wait and see what they do to fully understand their game plan. YouTube is/was suppose to be a place where anyone could share anything they wanted, and if they start terminating accounts, it's not just the channels, but the number of users that will be severely cut down.. I don't think they want their user numbers to get cut.
As for the videos being safe for kids or made for kids thingy, I just declared my channel as "not meant for kids" since what I do should primarily cater to maybe teens/adults that are interested in motorcycles/riding kinda stuff.. Plus I have no time to be PC Principal (Southpark) with my language (read: curse/swear).
Will it affect the channel earnings? I hope not, because I don't think (depending on their definition of) kids watch my stuff, and I also don't think kiddie ads run on my videos either.. We'll see.
I guess if it is made for kids, it automatically means it should be safe for kids. Mine are definitely neither. Haha!From that kids stuff, it really asks whether or not it is made especially for kids. Not if it is safe for kids.
Has to do with different settings, and probably loss of revenue when you are focused on kids.
So it should be better for the rest.
But if you read certain things, like certain tags aren't working when it is made for kids.Its definitely about kids, the latest lawsuit (where YT where collecting info on minors) must be related to these changes. YT most likely want a lot of videos specifically targeted and marketed to kids, especially for their YT for kids app.
