Dislikes will disappear on YouTube
Representatives of the video hosting YouTube announced a change in the approach to the system of rating videos by users. From November 11, the display of the number of dislikes will disappear on the service. The company explains this by taking care of the content authors.

Dislikes will disappear on YouTube

The thumb-down icon itself will remain in place, but the number of ratings will only be available to the creator of the video. According to the service staff, this will allow the authors to resist public displays of criticism and hostility. It should be noted that the function was already available to some channel owners in trial mode.

The disappearance of the counter of dislikes is intended to combat those cases when the user puts "thumbs down" before watching, without having familiarized themselves with the content of the video. At the same time, the algorithms will continue to select content for the viewer based on their ratings. YouTube developers consider this initiative to be correct, although they note that not everyone will like it.
