Throughout the next few weeks, YouTube plans to test a few new interface designs that will not publicly display the number of dislikes a video has acquired. In the design the organization flaunted, the dislike button is still there for individuals to tap, however it doesn’t have an include that is updated in real-time. As indicated by YouTube, content makers will in any case see that data through YouTube Studio.
The organization says the test follows feedback from content makers on “well-being and dislike campaigns,” yet notes individuals can in any case use the dislike button to share feedback too shape their proposals.
How to manage the Dislike button is something YouTube has been considering since at least 2018. That is the year its annual Rewind feature became the most disliked video on the platform.
After one year, the organization drifted attempting things like turning off rating counts by default and removing the button altogether to keep a mob of individuals from bombarding a video.
We wouldn’t say this most recent experiment spells the finish of the dislike button right now, however YouTube is obviously contemplating how to tackle the issue.
