We know that YouTube became a big media after Google bought it. It’s not surprising that we expect a lot of users to be active on this platform. YouTube’s CEO, Susan Wojcicki revealed something mind-blowing to the advertisers at YouTube’s Brandcast presentation. She revealed that YouTube now has an active user base of 1.8 Billion monthly active users. And these users don’t include the ones who are watching without any account. Along with that, some noteworthy achievements like — Beyonce setting a record of 41 Million Livestream viewers at Coachella, “Despacito” crossing 5 Billion Views last month already.
The company revealed that there were 1.5 Billion monthly active users and this doesn’t include those watching without an account. Wojcicki used the opportunity to address the conspiracies and questions that were revolving around YouTube. “This is the impact of an open platform as it brings the world together”, she added later. Something that appears to be still in progress is the hiring of 10,000moderators for the YouTube Kids platform.
These small things make a big platform. People keep adding to it, and the platform still grows. The new monetization rules did depress some, but still, this was the right step to filter out half of the non-passionate and greedy YouTubers. The company also declared that they’d be updating their policies and terms very soon too. These all things will result in a way making this platform better for everyone and also trying to make it a secure place for everyone at the same time. For this, YouTube is already working on machine learning.
