How to re-enable YouTube’s dislikes: 2 extensions you can use



How to re-enable YouTube's dislikes: 2 extensions you can use

On November 10, 2021, YouTube officially announced that the number of dislikes for all videos on their platform has been removed. The company stated that the new move was intended to help limit and control targeted harassment against the creators.

The number of dislikes was a useful indicator that helped measure the quality, as well as the reliability factor of a video. Example – Tutorials. Since the update, many YouTubers and viewers have spoken out about its shortcomings and believe that the feature should have been left untouched.

Fortunately, there are some browser extensions that show the like/dislike ratio and other stats, even if they are disabled by YouTube:


vidIQ is a third-party analytics website used by a large number of creators on YouTube. The site offers tips for growing your channel and provides detailed statistics based on public interactions on videos. To see the number of dislikes, users need to install a vidIQ extension which is currently only available in Chrome and Firefox browsers.

Step 1: Search “vidIQ extension” in your favorite browser and go to the official website. At the top you will see a list of options – click on “Extension”.

UPDATE 3 Rohingya Refugees Sue Facebook for $150 Billion for Violence in Myanmar




Facebook says it removes accounts that focused on Vietnamese activists

Rohingya refugees from Myanmar are suing Meta Platforms Inc, formerly known as Facebook, for $150 billion over allegations that the social media company has failed to act against anti-Rohingya hate speech that has contributed to violence. A US class-action lawsuit filed Monday in California by law firms Edelson PC and Fields PLLC argues that the company’s failure to control content and the platform’s design contributed to the real-life violence facing the Rohingya. . .com/investigates/special-report/myanmar-facebook-hate community.

In a concerted action, British lawyers have also sent a letter of formal notice to Facebook’s London office. A Meta spokesperson said in a statement: “We are shocked by the crimes committed against the Rohingya people in Myanmar. We have built a dedicated team of Burmese speakers, banned the Tatmadaw (Myanmar’s military), disrupted networks that manipulate public debate and take action against harmful misinformation to protect people. We have also invested in Burmese language technology to reduce the prevalence of infringing content.”

The company previously said it was “too slow to prevent misinformation and hatred” in Myanmar. A spokesman for the Myanmar junta did not return calls from Reuters to comment on the legal action against Facebook.

In 2018, UN human rights researchers said the use of Facebook had played a key role in spreading hate speech that fueled the violence. A Reuters investigation that year, cited in the US complaint, found more than 1,000 examples of posts, comments, and images depicting the Rohingya and other attacking Muslims on Facebook. Almost all were in the main local language, Burmese.

The swear words included posts calling the Rohingya or other Muslims dogs, maggots and rapists, suggesting that they be fed to pigs, and urging them to be shot or exterminated. The posts were tolerated despite Facebook rules specifically prohibiting attacking ethnic groups with “violent or dehumanizing language” or comparing them to animals.

Facebook has said it is protected from liability for content posted by users by a US internet law known as Section 230, which states that online platforms are not liable for content posted by third parties. The complaint says it wants to apply Myanmar law to the claims if Section 230 is raised as a defense. While US courts can apply foreign law to cases where the alleged harm and activities by companies occurred in other countries, two legal experts interviewed by Reuters said they were not aware of a successful precedent for foreign law invoked in lawsuits against social media companies where Section 230 protections may apply.

Anupam Chander, a professor at Georgetown University Law Center, said relying on Myanmar law was not “inappropriate”. But he predicted that “it is unlikely to be successful,” saying that “it would be strange if Congress ruled out actions under US law but allowed them to proceed under foreign law.” More than 730,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Rakhine state in Myanmar in August 2017 after a military crackdown that refugees say involved massacres and rapes. Rights groups documented murders of civilians and the burning of villages.

Myanmar authorities say they fought an insurgency and deny committing systematic atrocities. The International Criminal Court has opened a case over allegations of crimes in the region. In September, a US federal judge ordered Facebook to release data from accounts linked to anti-Rohingya violence in Myanmar that the social media giant had shut down.

The new class-action lawsuit references claims by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, who leaked a cache 2021-12-03 from internal documents this year that the company does not monitor abusive content in countries where such expressions are likely to do the most damage. The complaint also cites recent media reports, including a Reuters report last month, that Myanmar military used fake social media accounts to engage in what is commonly referred to in the military as “information battle.”

Mohammed Taher, a refugee living in the camps in Bangladesh where more than a million Rohingya live, said Facebook was widely used to spread anti-Rohingya propaganda. “We are happy with the move,” he said on the phone.

YouTube cancels year-end video ‘Rewind’ for 2020, says it’s been a different year




YouTube cancels year-end video 'Rewind' for 2020, says it's been a different year

Video streaming giant YouTube, owned by Google, has announced that it will not release a “Rewind” video for 2020, the company’s celebratory year-end video featuring top video creators. YouTube made the announcement in a statement, saying 2020 was a “different” year and it wouldn’t feel right to continue if it wasn’t. “We know that so much of the good that happened in 2020 was created by all of you. You’ve found ways to cheer people up, help them cope, and make them laugh. You really made a difficult year better,” YouTube said in a statement.

According to an IANS report, major creators have backed YouTube’s call to cancel its year-end video ‘Rewind’. However, the report said there were disagreements with some creators like JerryRigEverything saying that besides all the wrong things that have happened this year, there are several things to be positive about. “Since 2010, we have closed the year with Rewind: a look back at the most impactful creators, videos and trends of the year. Whether you love it — or you just remember 2018 — Rewind was always meant to celebrate you. Thank you for making a difference,” the tweeted statement from YouTube read.

In 2018, YouTube turned its year-end rundown into a short film with cameos from Will Smith, Marshmello, and more. However, the video became the most hated video of all time, despite a star-studded cast. Last year, YouTube went back to a montage of clips from YouTube’s most liked videos of the year.
