(Natural News) The most popular video streaming service in the world, YouTube, now receives over 30 million visitors every day. At least 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute and nearly 5 billion videos are watched every single day.
Now that the world is addicted to the platform, YouTube leaders see an invaluable opportunity to control what people watch, learn, and think. This is accomplished by evaluating user experience and using algorithms to dictate video recommendations on YouTube's front page. In the beginning, YouTube used video recommendations to "improve user experience." Now they are using the algorithms to omit video recommendations that are considered "conspiracies." YouTube will now use machine learning to hide content that is considered too dangerous for adults to come across.
