YouTube hides the dislike count below the videos


Internet users will always be able to click on the button I don’t like this content, but the negative review count will no longer be displayed.

Creators of content will be able to see the number of thumbs pointing down in their private YouTube Studio space, where it is possible to view various data on their channel.

We want to create an inclusive and respectful environment that will allow creators to be successful and to express themselves safely.

This is just one of the many steps we are taking to continue to protect creators from harassment., can we read in a press release.

Conclusive tests

YouTube says it conducted a test earlier this year with a handful of channels to determine whether not showing the button I do not like limited the number of negative clicks.

The results have turned out to be conclusive, both for novices and pros.

Since May, Facebook and Instagram users have been able to hide the number of likes their posts collect.

A response to criticism

Video platforms and major social networks are frequently targeted by parliamentarians, regulatory bodies and associations, who believe that they are not doing enough to combat online harassment.

Meta, the new name of the Facebook group, currently concentrates most of these criticisms. The company led by Mark Zuckerberg is going through one of the worst crises in its history after the revelations of a whistleblower and ex-employee, who accuses the social media giant of putting profits before the safety of its users and users.

At the end of October in the United States, people representing TikTok, Snapchat and YouTube had to respond to parliamentarians accusing them of harming the mental and physical health of young people.
