YouTube CEO apologizes after verification uproar

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki issued an apology on Friday to video creators about changes the company is making to its verification program. This comes a day after the company said it is overhauling its system for verifying users on its platform. The announcement outrage among some users, who said their verified statuses were revoked because of the new requirements.

I do not believe YouTube anymore; they are clearly choosing to be a corporate shill platform instead of an independent creator platform.

Get on bitchute. Even if you don't watch content there right away, sub to the people you want to hear from before they disappear from YouTube not after. The sooner we can migrate off youtube entirely the better. The way to mobilise this migration is have sub numbers climb on alt tech.

Their bias is clear purposeful. They’re obviously pushing the “orange man bad” narrative.

They only want to verify "authoritative" sources... I.E.: They are desperate to turn themselves into a pay TV outlet with cable/satellite channels, traditional print media gone digital and their own Netflix style original programming. In short, they want to drop the "You" and just be (corporate) Tube. Watching TV is not what most consumers want out of YouTube and I find their shift towards being a TV outlet in an oversaturated streaming segment baffling.

Nobody cares if youtube is sorry for screwing up. People care if youtube will fix its mess. until they fix, the apology is an empty platitude.

Big corporations helping other big corporations while trying to silence small businesses, all while Marxists praise YouTube/Google. If that's not absolute proof that one has to be mentally retarded to champion Marxism, idk what is

the point of verification should be to verify that you are you who you say you are. if that criteria is met then the person should be verified. the real reason they're changing the rules is because the exclusive verified club has become too diluted by the unwashed masses for the likings of our blue checked overlords, and they can't allow that.

Fire Susan. $70 billion loss in 6 months. Selling corrupted marketing data to US companies costing them billions in sales and damaging their brands forever. You would almost think that the company is run by communists, funded by Oil Kingdoms, for the benefit of the Chinese Communist Party. Oh wait they are.

Sp let me get this straight: a bunch of non_left.leaning channels get demonetized and YouTube doesnt apologize. But when they fuck up a policy that affects a bunch of check marks on the site, now suddenly they care about the sites users and apologize. Fuck you, Susan, and fuck you Youtube.
