"Something is wrong on internet," wrote DerAutor and artist James Bridle this week in a blog post. "Someone or something" uses YouTube to systematically frighten, traumatize and abuse Childrenon of platform. Bridles Post follows an article in New York Times Indians last week, which is more moderate in tone, but still asks same question: How safe are kids on YouTube really?
Children have long been among most important users of YouTube. Even small and pre-school children now find millions of content that replace traditional television. YouTube offers a sheer unendlicheAbfolge of videos with animated figures, nursery rhymes and PutzigenCharakteren. Two years ago, platform with YouTube Kids has its own Appveröffentlicht in which to find only age-appropriate videos Seinsollen. More than 45 million times app has now been installed; Since September this year y are also in Germany.Disturbing content between harmless clips
YouTube Kids is supposed to be a safe place for youngest media consumers, full of colorful and harmless content. But WieBridle and ors found out before him, this is not always case. Regularly, videos are created in children's offer, which appear harmless at first glance, but are disturbing at second glance for children's eyes.
There would be a video with British comic figure PeppaPig, in which characters suddenly drink bleach. In a anderenwerden known children's book figures run over and die a qualvollenTod. Ors consist of sexual allusions; So in numerous clip simmer rock of Minnie Maus is stolen again. Some content is nochexpliziter and individuals are actually showing interactions between adults and children who are going to borderline of mental abuse.
Individual clips like one with Pepper pig can be located in DerTrollkultur (actually re is a whole fake-pepper-pig-subculture on YouTube); It contains stale memes and is obviously EineParodie, which is not intended for children's eyes. For ors, origin is foggy, as James Bridle writes. He mentions in his contribution channels that have partial millions of subscriptions and always follow same scheme: y bestehenaus videos that seemingly indiscriminately animated figures, nursery rhymes UndErklärvideos cut toger and y with dozens on YouTube Kidsbeliebten keywords. Many have no imprint.The algorithms determine content
They owe ir success to YouTube's algorithms. They schlagenjedem user content that might also please m, based on DenSuchbegriffen and previously viewed clips. For YouTube Kids, selection is supposed to be more restrictive. The algorithms are said to tell YouTube, trade video is suitable for children. But whole process is also weitestgehendautomatisiert here. Videos are not checked by a human employee until y are reported by a user. "YouTube Kids is supervised offer," says child content VerantwortlicheYouTube manager Malik Ducard imconversation with New York Times.Es Liege continues to disable parents, search terms and channels undungeeignete and non-age-appropriate content to Log.
In August, a prolonged article in US magazine TheAtlantic revealed how easy it is for children's content to be dieAlgorithmen over. Because children, unlike adults, always watch same content again, it is easier to produce targeted ähnlicheVideos. "Automatic reward systems such as YouTubefördern's exploitation," writes James Bridle.
