Should YouTube reverse its new monetization policy?
Youtube removed the ads on Philip DeFranco's channel.
The policy will make it impossible to talk about controversial topics, which is the value in a lot of YouTube videos. YouTube gives creators freedom to talk about what they think is important without having to bow down to network executives. That's what makes YouTube work. This change is troubling to say the least.
Producer just got off the phone with Youtube and it wasn't a mistake. Feels a little bit like getting stabbed in the back after 10 years.
The policy states "Advertiser-friendly content is content that's appropriate for all audiences. It has little to no inappropriate or mature content in the video stream, thumbnail, or metadata (such as in the video title). If the video does contain inappropriate content, the context is usually newsworthy or comedic and the creator’s intent is to inform or entertain (not offend or shock)."
The reason we're not worried about "harsh language" demonetizing our videos is the first paragraph - https://t.co/rSIdL1FU7E context clear
