The FTC is Investigating YouTube’s Failure to Protect Children

The Infinite Brief
The Federal Trade Commission is investigating YouTube’s data collection practices and failure to protect children.

The investigation follows reports demonstrating how YouTube’s autoplay and recommendation feature allows predators to take advantage of content on the platform featuring children.

One of the biggest requests that YouTube executives have received from policy makers, critics, and even some employees is to stop recommending videos that contain children.

It would be difficult for YouTube to remove all videos with children and migrate them over to YouTube Kids without affecting the greater creator community.
