Hey, parents, if you use and like YouTube’s safety features (Safety Mode, the profanity filter for comments, and its video-rich Help section), you might post your comments below their blog post about “Celebrating Internet Safety Month.” It would be interesting to get parents’ views. Judging by the comments under their post, most people who have something to say about YouTube’s safety features are against them, see them as censorship. Is it that there aren’t many parents on YouTube, or that people only comment when they have a complaint? The post has links to YouTube’s own videos about its Community Guidelines, how to flag objectionable material, unlisted videos, how to use the Help & Safety Tool, etc. I’d be very interested to hear your thoughts on how YouTube safety measures like these work at your house, so comment here too!
