YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced on a blog today that YouTube will launch a pilot program with a small group of users in an attempt to address and improve the continuing concerns of its creators with regard to demonetization and other recent changes and in unpopular to the YouTube Partner Program. .
In the publication, which was largely an update last year and in particular in recent months, Wojcicki acknowledged the frustrations of many content creators who have expressed their concerns, saying that the last two weeks have been "challenging" and that YouTube was "committed to communicate more with all of you", while proclaiming that "the channels that earn five figures a year grew more than 35 percent, while the channels that earn six figures a year grew more than 40 percent "
These are exciting news for people who are already doing great on YouTube, and less so for people who have had to deal with stricter eligibility rules to monetize content on YouTube. "While we know that some creators found this change frustrating, it strengthened advertisers' trust, which made monetization and the broader YouTube community stronger for the creators who developed their business on the platform," says Wojcicki.
The publication, which articulates "an update of [YouTube’s] 2018 priorities," says the platform wants to provide more opportunities for creators to interact with fans and address abuse, stating that "YouTube is an incredible force for good, particularly when it's about education. "
Wojcicki also announced the imminent launch of a YouTube pilot program designed to address complaints about his annoying upload algorithm, which users say has been mis-demonetizing the friendly videos. It is being launched "with a small group of creators to test a new video upload stream that will ask creators to provide specific information about what's in their videos in relation to our favorable advertiser guidelines":
In an ideal world, we will eventually reach a state where the creators of the platform can accurately represent what is in their videos so that their ideas, combined with our algorithmic classifiers and human reviewers, make the monetization process much easier. . with fewer false positive demonetizations.
Not all YouTube creators were receptive to this response to many of their perennial concerns.
More empty chuffs from a site that cares more for posting ads in bellends videos than for supporting dedicated creators, for example. animators, debates, etc.https: //t.co/ZlstfdafZD- Kristian (@InvisibleTower) April 17, 2018
