YouTube Is Working On An Anti-Dislike Mob Solution! [VIDEO]

TECH NEWS – We regularly see that a video gets a ton of dislikes, seemingly for no real reason, receiving more dislikes than likes in the process…

This is what we call a dislike mob – for example, a simple one-side hate towards the video creator can trigger mass dislikes on a video (which, incidentally, helps it, as YouTube‘s algorithms count dislikes as an interaction, too… and there’s also the fact that you can make hundreds of YouTube channels in mere minutes!). YouTube knows about the issue, and they are trying to fix the issue.

YouTube wants to hear the opinion of the content creators (we wonder how much they actually care about that…), and one of the proposed solutions against dislike mobs would be a roll-down list that has to be used by the disliker(s) to explain why they gave the negative rating. (It would likely be a pointless idea.) The joke is that YouTube considers it to be „difficult to implement.”

Another solution would be publicly showing only the likes (the dislikes would be hidden, but if you decide to hide the ratings, you would still be able to rate the videos, and we have seen many times that dislikes have been removed from a video – a prime example would be Diablo: Immortal). Deleting the dislike button is also considered, and they also think they could force the dislikers to watch a certain percentage of the video to dislike it.

So YouTube is trying, but there are other, more significant issues on the site than dislike mobs…
