YouTube Deletes Over 152,000 Videos In Bangladesh2 min read

YouTube, the video streaming giant under Google’s umbrella, has disclosed its remarkable video removal statistics for the fourth quarter of 2023. The platform’s robust moderation measures aimed at upholding community guidelines have resulted in the removal of millions of videos worldwide.

During the last quarter of 2023, YouTube took down an astonishing 9 million videos globally, marking a significant effort in content moderation. Notably, India emerged as the top-ranking country with over 2.25 million video removals, reflecting stringent enforcement of YouTube’s community standards in the region. Bangladesh also made a notable appearance on the list, ranking 8th globally with 152,051 videos removed for violating community guidelines.

A crucial aspect of YouTube’s moderation strategy is its reliance on advanced technology, particularly machine learning. Over 96% of the flagged videos were initially identified by AI systems, showcasing the effectiveness of artificial intelligence in detecting potential policy violations. Impressively, more than half of these removed videos were taken down before receiving any views, underscoring YouTube’s proactive approach in curbing the dissemination of harmful content.

Furthermore, YouTube terminated a staggering 20 million channels globally during the same quarter, predominantly for violations of community guidelines related to spam. Additionally, the platform removed over 1.1 billion comments worldwide due to policy violations, with spam being the primary reason for their removal.

This global moderation initiative extends beyond India and Bangladesh, with significant video removals observed in other countries as well. Singapore and the United States followed India in terms of removal volumes, indicating a widespread effort by YouTube to maintain a safe and compliant environment for its users worldwide.

YouTube’s extensive video removal efforts in the fourth quarter of 2023 underscore its commitment to enforcing community guidelines and combating harmful content on its platform. Through the utilization of advanced technology and proactive moderation measures, YouTube continues to prioritize the safety and integrity of its user experience across the globe.
