Alternatives To State-run Social Media: >>>/prepare/20 | https:// archive.fo/53IjY
YouTube is so angry that the public keeps rejecting their left-wing propaganda that it is considering removing the dislike button altogether.
According to a new report, YouTube is looking at thwarting “dislike mobs” (aka average YouTube users) who are “weaponizing the dislike button” by downvoting crappy virtue-signalling videos like YouTube Rewind and the recent Gillette ad.
From The Verge: YouTube is no stranger to viewers weaponizing the dislike button, as seen by the company’s recent Rewind video, but the product development team is working on a way to tackle the issue. Tom Leung, director of project management at YouTube, addressed the issue of “dislike mobs” in a recent issue of Creator Insider, YouTube’s corporate series for creators.

If you don’t like their crappy propaganda videos you’re part of a “dislike mob” and you’re “weaponizing” your downvote.
This propaganda is so stupid it’s mind-blowing.
“Dislike mobs” are the YouTube equivalent to review bombings on Steam — a group of people who are upset with a certain creator or game decide to execute an organized attack and downvote or negatively review a game or video into oblivion. It’s an issue on YouTube as well, and one that creators have spoken out against many times in the past. Reports have suggested that a video with a high number of dislikes — that outweighs the number of positive likes — is less likely to be recommended, and could therefore hurt the creator’s channel.
If you’re pushing propaganda and you don’t want the public to downvote your video you can simply turn off downvotes and upvotes.
Of course, that’s not good enough for these people.
As in Orwell’s 1984, we all have to be forced to love the propaganda.
This is all part of Google’s massive social engineering experiment — which is unprecedented in size — that is meddling in our democracy to give themselves and their allies in the Democratic Party (and the Republican establishment) more power.
