YouTube has made changes to its platform in order to increase spam and abuse detection in comments and live chat. The video streaming platform owned by Google has improved its procedures for detecting spam in comments and bots in live chats.
To identify and remove spam, YouTube has been trying to improve our automated detection systems and machine learning models. In fact, it has eliminated over 1.1 billion spam comments in the first six months of 2022. A new function has also been introduced that will issue a warning to users who are found to be breaking the platform’s Community Guidelines.
To keep bots out of live chats, YouTube has upgraded its spambot detection. ” We know bots negatively impact the live streaming experience, as the live chat is a great way to engage and connect with other users and creators. This update should make live streaming a better experience for everyone,” the company added.
YouTube is introducing a new feature that alerts users when some of their comments have been discovered and removed for breaching our Community Guidelines. Furthermore, if a user continues to leave abusive remarks, they may be timed out and temporarily unable to comment for up to 24 hours. As per the company, these warnings/timeouts have been found in our tests to lower the risk of users leaving violative comments again.
This notification is currently only available for English comments; it is intended that more languages will be added in the coming months.
YouTube via its official support page said, “Our goal is to both protect creators from users trying to negatively impact the community via comments, as well as offer more transparency to users who may have had comments removed to policy violations and hopefully help them understand our Community Guidelines. Of course our systems don’t always get it right, so users who receive these warnings can give feedback to help us know if we’ve gotten it wrong.”
