The fake YouTube videos posted by a number of YouTube creators are often of dubious origin, with some allegedly being created by people with very little knowledge of the video medium.
In an attempt to identify such fake videos, YouTube has launched a new report, “The YouTube Report.”
The new report will be presented to the world in the coming days, highlighting the “unusual and questionable” content uploaded by a small number of creators.
It is part of a larger effort by the video sharing platform to bring its users up to date on what is being said and posted on the site, according to YouTube’s marketing director.
“The goal of this report is to provide insight into what is going on and why people are posting these videos,” he said.
YouTube’s report is expected to be launched soon, and will include details about the number of times these videos have been uploaded by creators and the nature of the content being posted.
The report will highlight the most common videos being uploaded to YouTube and what users are saying about them.
“This report will also highlight the many cases where users have posted videos on YouTube that have not been verified by the creators or YouTube themselves,” the marketing director said.
The video creators named in the report will not be allowed to continue uploading their videos, but will be flagged by YouTube’s systems to help them avoid being removed from the platform.
YouTube says that it will also investigate complaints against video creators and take appropriate action if necessary.
“The YouTube report is designed to help us identify and identify fake videos on our platform,” said the marketing head.
“YouTube is a great platform, and we do not encourage this type of activity.
If you think you have seen a fake YouTube video, or have seen videos with questionable content, let us know.”
