YouTube has made new changes to their policies that informs all famous YouTubers that they should basically watch what they say in terms of politics, profanity, social issues (rape or graphic content), Copyright, nudity or sexual content, threats, hateful content, spam through tags and lastly, harmful or dangerous content. These guidelines will be enforced to any YouTuber that publishes video, their content must not publicize the guidelines listed above or their videos will not be monetized (YouTube Community Guidelines). Also, the tags that are being posted along with the video for everyone to see must not contain terms such as, (rape, rape culture, suicide) and so forth or the video will be added to the black list of YouTube and eventually the video will also not be monetized and may cause for the user to get banned off of YouTube as mentioned by H3H3 Productions. I personally can enjoy a little bit of profanity but I will have to adjust onto watching PG-13 YouTube Videos. What are your thoughts on this note? Do you think these strict guidelines will stray the audience from utilizing YouTube and using another video source? I honestly think this change will open doors to new business’s in this industry. I wonder how long certain YouTubers will last without using profanity and inappropriate behavior on YouTube.

Nice post! I didn't know there is a newly polished guidelines about YouTube. It is nice that you put a reference video for me to understanding more about the new policy. I agree that YouTube should be a bit strict. It is because YouTube is the world most famous video watching resource in the internet. Almost everyone in the world can browse to YouTube. Many people post different kind of video on it and they may promote something or tell some messages. It is easy that the viewers would follow the youtubers’ idea or action. However, I believe people should have their own critical thing. :) :)
