YouTube Will Now Hide Dislike Counts On Videos In Hopes Of Protecting Creators From Hate Attacks

“This is good. You all should have implemented this a long time ago,” commented one user.

Still, many others see it as being “too sensitive” or impractical.

“There is no point in removing a dislike counter. If a creator cannot handle criticism, he/she should not present anything to society at all,” commented another user.

“I understand why you would want to do that, but I think it is a horrible idea. Let’s say I want to know how to take out my motorcycle’s engine, and I come across a video; I would have to go all the way through the comments to see if it is legitimate. What is the point of improving creator experience if the viewers’ experience drops?” said a third user.

Whether the public agrees with YouTube’s new policy or not, it is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
