YouTube adds the most irritating feature: commercials. The video service has confirmed that it will start showing advertisements on non-monetized platforms. Also, creators with a low subscriber count will not be able to earn the revenue.
Last week, YouTube changed its terms and services, a step that cemented the policy not to charge for displaying ads through non-monetized channels. All the newbies on YouTube are criticizing the policy.
Usually, YouTubers can join the YouTube Partner Program. When the YouTubers choose to let the platform run advertising on their videos. In this way, both parties get an equal share of the money. Primarily, the eligibility criteria for the channels to monetize their content was getting over 1000 followers and more than 4,000 legitimate public watch hours in the past 12 months.
Furthermore, creators who choose not to monetize their platforms or those who do not meet the requirements will have no alternative but to disturb their content with no personal benefit through advertisements.
Justifiably, the audience on YouTube is annoyed. The website has been filled with videos questioning the company’s option.
Due to its constantly infuriating updates, developers and subscribers alike continue to lose confidence in YouTube. However, it’s a new low to let down people who helped to create the site. Perhaps it’s time to launch an entirely new platform.
If you’re based in the U.S., you’ll notice that we’ve updated our Terms of Service today – last time we made a ToS update, many of you had questions (understandably!) about what this means for you, so we’ve broken the update down part by part in our Forum: https://t.co/Gnbx1Mo9vr
