YouTube Has Finally Disabled The Dislike Button

It has been 16-17 years since YouTube was introduced and it was the time when the internet was not so popular and watching content online was very expensive. In the early days of YouTube was introduced with a rating system just like an eCommerce website where you buy any products give your rating from 1 to 5 according to the product. It was depending on the quality of the products. YouTube also was working the same, user was free to provide to express their review from 1 to 5 according to video quality. This rating guides the new user to choose the right video for them. And then YouTube introduced the like and dislike feature it was very familiar to users and guides the user about the content of any video that he was going to watch.

On 30 March YouTube posted on Twitter that they will do some experiments for our content creator.


Why did YouTube remove the video dislike count?

YouTube says that change would protect its content creator from abuse and reduce the stress of "dislike attacks" which refer to groups of people purposefully increasing the amount of dislikes videos receive.

YouTube explained: “Earlier this year, we experimented with the dislike button to see whether or not changes could help better protect our creators from harassment, and reduce dislike attacks — where people work to drive up the number of dislikes on a creator’s videos.”

YouTube also said that it has received reports from smaller authors and those who were just getting started on the platform that they were being unfairly targeted by the 'dislike attack'.
