YouTube adjusts its recommendation algorithm to surface more "quality family content"

YouTube adjusts its recommendation algorithm to surface more "quality family content". YouTube isn’t saying exactly what’s changed but users on the main YouTube platform and YouTube Kids are seeing more kid-friendly content. For example, creators like PBS Kids and Mother Goose Club saw a boost in views and subscriptions while other creators reported sharp declines. Bloomberg suggests the changes were made to appease the FTC, who recently investigated YouTube for its handling of kids’ privacy. engadget
