YouTube is trying to prevent angry mobs from abusing “dislike” button

Could the thumbs-down button disappear from YouTube entirely?

YouTube's dislike button can be a source of anxiety for many creators, and now YouTube is considering a number of options to prevent viewers from abusing that tool. Tom Leung, director of project management at YouTube, posted an update to the Creator Insider channel recently in which he detailed some "lightly discussed" options for combatting "dislike mobs," or large groups of users who slam the dislike button on a video before watching the whole thing, or even watching the video at all.

While none of the options Leung details may ever become permanent, YouTube is thinking about experimentation. Currently, like and dislike ratings are shown by default—that's why anyone can see the number of likes and dislikes a video has by checking out the numbers next to the thumbs-up and thumbs-down icons beneath the video player. However, users can change their settings to make ratings invisible.

One of the new options YouTube has talked about is making those ratings invisible by default, so you wouldn't be able to see the number of likes or dislikes a video has. Other options include asking users to provide more information about why they disliked a video (possibly in the form of a checklist), removing the dislike count across the board, and removing the dislike button entirely.

Leung acknowledges that all of these options have pros and cons, and YouTube may not implement any of them after testing. Particularly, he notes that removing the dislike button from YouTube isn't the most democratic option, and it's quite extreme. Leung invites users to leave their own suggestions as to what YouTube should do in the comments of the update video.

While plenty of creators have fallen victim to dislike mobs, YouTube itself experienced a massive mob recently when its 2018 Rewind video became the most disliked video on the platform last year (as of today, it has 15 million dislikes). Millions of those dislikes may have been genuine, but it's possible that millions of other dislikes came from users hopping on the negativity bandwagon.

Numerous dislikes can prevent the video from showing up in recommended lists and limit viewership overall. Creators big and small on YouTube can be affected by dislike mobs, particularly if a video includes divisive content or if the creators themselves is a controversial figure. But like most issues that YouTube tries to tackle and perfect, it will be difficult for the company to find a solution that actually fixes the problem and also doesn't frustrate some creators and users.

Dislikes only tell me about quality and accuracy. I judge the content regardless. If they come up with another way to forewarn me that this video ain't what it purports to be idgaf about dislikes. People upvote warnings in comments about the vids so I usually go there first regardless of likes

The far right use the dislike button to discourage people from viewing content they disagree with regardless if it's true. If taking away the dislike button can prevent that tactic I will support it.

Nope, it's just that a lot of Millennials and Gen Z softies claim anxiety and depression if given any type of criticism.

Back then you could see the like/dislike bar on a video before even clicking on it. Youtube slowly removed it silently years ago. Now you have to click IN the video to see what the rating is.

that being said, they will attempt to use the same approach by proposing another "more user friendly" and "efficient" feature

nah son, it's like proposing square wheels for the next gen car and swear that it's the future. Some things don't need to be changed

Good and bad. People are sheep and will judge a video off it's rating. YTers just bot their likes to start and people see a 2k likes to 5 dislike ratio they are going to like it too.

When the NFL uploaded the Maroon 5 halftime show and got over 100k dislikes they reuploaded hoping they could eliminate the dislikes if they tried again.


Now they are at 700k dislikes on the new upload.

They worried about the dislike button when 99.9% of comments are a cesspool for racists spewing hatred.

That's going to be a win for them. Because by taking that away, now they can post their bullsh*t and gullible idiots will take it as a fact.

I'm not saying it's not happening now, but it won't make it any better.

Youtube took away the thumbs down numbering for comments and nobody complains. If they remove the thumbs down from rating the video, people will just judge videos on their like to views ration if they are not judging by the content.
