#YoutubeIsOverParty trending after Gaga and LGBT videos are blocked

Started by shmal96 with 57 replies so far

 With Youtube's 'Restricted Mode' feature turned on, Gaga videos are blocked and will not come up when searched (example: Born This Way). Other LGBT videos and vloggers are having their videos restricted as well (Tyler Oakley). 

 

From Google's website:

"You can use Restricted Mode to help screen out potentially objectionable content that you may prefer not to see or don't want others in your family to see on YouTube. We use community flagging, age-restrictions, and other signals to identify and filter out potentially inappropriate content. Restricted Mode is available in all languages, but due to potential cultural sensitivities, the quality may vary."

 

:what:

I am not shocked at all that this backfired at day one.

Yeah the filter definitly needs to be fixed. It's worth being pointed out though because LGBT content shouldn't be considered 'inappropriate'. Sexual content is different than having a video titled "LGBT right advocates who inspire me" blocked.

Is there literally any other streaming video service we can all mass migrate to? :interestinga:

Youtube has been going downhill for the last 10 years, but what are the alternatives :interestinga:

Vimeo is probably the safer bet, but since they are more for content creators than regular people, they probably will stay in their niche.

There's (sadly) still Facebook and Twitter.

Who's even watching YouTube on restricted mode? Kids who only search for cartoons?

This is a non issue. :nails:

I'm pretty sure this is a glitch or something they didn't intend to happen, Google is pretty much pro-gay so calm down

Unfortuantely youtubers have to make the first move before people follow :smh:

And because Youtube pays the bills, it's not going to happen :smh:
