Finally, Google to Start Cleaning Up YouTube Comments

Posted on the 25 September 2013 by Nrjperera @nrjperera


YouTube has the most bullying, racist and violent comments on the Internet. Everybody knows that. Reading most of the comments on videos actually surprised me many times to see Google allowing that kind of responses to appear on one their websites. Well, it looks like they are finally taking some actions against this as YouTube has announced a new comment system to take over the video-sharing website to bring a more personalized, cleaner service to users.

According to YouTube official blog, this new comment system will get powered by Google+ to personalize YouTube discussions and rank comments for each user. This brings new tools for YouTubers to “review comments before they’re posted, block certain words or save time by auto-approving comments from certain fans.”

“When it comes to the conversations happening on YouTube, recent does not necessarily mean relevant. So, comments will soon become conversations that matter to you. In the coming months, comments from people you care about will rise up where you can see them, while new tools will help video creators moderate conversations for welcome and unwelcome voices.” Google’s Nundu Janakiram explained in the blog post.

This won’t be putting an end to bullies. But, it will definitely remove most of the spammers and idiotic anonymous comments. New Google+ powered comment system now appears on channel discussion tab and will roll out for all videos, soon.
