YouTube is revising its community standards to prohibit any community’s dominance video clips as a motive for discriminatory practices against someone else based on age, gender, ethnicity, caste, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status, the firm said yesterday. It is anticipated that this step will lead to the elimination of any of the videos promoting Nazism as well as other unfair ideologies.

The modifications confirmed on Wednesday are trying in three respects to enhance their content moderation. First, the supremacist prohibition will eliminate Nazis as well as other radicals who support age, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status-based segregation or exclusion. YouTube adds caste, which has important consequences in India, as well as those categories.
Second, YouTube said that it would increase attempts released in January to decrease the distribution of what it calls “borderline content and damaging misinformation.” The policy, that relates to videos that flirt with breaking the rules of the society but eventually fall incomplete, seeks to restrict the spread of all those videos by suggestions.
Third the last, YouTube said that unless channels are discovered to “constantly brushing up toward our hate speech policies,” it would limit channels from leveraging their videos. These channels won’t even be able to run advertisements or use Super Chat, which allows subscribers to pay producers directly for additional chat characteristics. This last change happens since BuzzFeed reported using the paid comment scheme to fund creators of videos.
