You Tube hiding dislikes (by BillW [NJ]) Posted on: Nov 22, 2021 11:06 AM
Message:

Anyone notice, or have any thoughts on You Tube not showing the count of dislikes?

Many times before I attempt a toilet repair, for example, I’ll go to You Tube to find a tutorial on the subject. I'll look at the ratio of “likes” to “dislikes” to judge the quality of the content, in the instructional video. Now without the “dislikes” count, I’m somewhat in the dark about the quality of the video’s instruction.

.

Anyone else have any thoughts on this? I’d really like to hear them! Thanks - Bill

I just looked it up as I hadn't realized that had happened, and their reasoning is sound. People were going after smaller content creators especially with "Dislike" attacks.

YouTube acknowledged that, like you, people did use the Dislike count to decide whether to watch a video, and that's how it became a problem by these concerted attacks on certain people.

The Dislike count is visible now only to the content creator, so they have some metrics to judge their own stuff.

Nonsense WMH. The administration and the Covid stuff was getting ratio’d like crazy! That’s the real reason they got rid of it. And I’m not just talking 49 to 51. I’m talking 1500 likes to 30,000 dislikes. Just one more way for them to try to silence the dissent, --174.198.x.xxx

Yeah, I gotta agree with NE, it's the administration and covid stuff. When Biden or Fauci had speeches on you tube they got a ton of dislikes vs likes. A lot of times they would disable the comments. --74.102.xx.xx

I see both sides... yes, there were/are certain news media organizations that were getting dislike to like on their videos at a 2-1, 3-1, even 4-1 ratio, but I can also see dislikes as possibly a weapon to beat up on any content creator.

Honestly, I don't "get" the like/dislike system. I rarely check it. I can tell within 1-2 minutes if a video is worth my time. It's a marginally useful tool for stuff that's trending and as a way to put it into your queue for later re-watching, but I would never consider it to be a valid measure of any "How To" type video. --108.230.xxx.xx

Sid, it's just like restaurant ratings on Yelp, you can go and taste the food, or you can look at the rating and save your time. Like I do with you tube like/dislike ratio, Yelp does the same, making a rating by using a ratio of likes to dislikes, although using a bit more complicated algorithm than I do, to come up with the ratings. --74.102.xx.xx

Want a big shock? Read Robert Kennedy's book about Fauci and our Democracy. I got it on Ebay but it arrived from Amazon. Fauci, Bill Gates and Gilead killed our citizens for vax money. You want dislikes? Thousands and thousands of our loved ones were disliked by these folks. --108.24.xx.xx

Allym, sounds like one of those "follow the money" scenarios.

Good reminder Tony. These days, like many others I'm sure, I get most of my info from those two places, google and you tube. A bit concerning that one company controls most of the info that we get. --74.102.xx.xx

If they aren't posting the dislikes, you could always take a few seconds to read the comments.

If I'm trying to learn how to do something new-to-me, I am going to watch 3-4 of the videos and look for information from each and then choose the best one.

I mostly use the music videos and its easy to see how little value comes with the "dislike" count. It looks like people hit the dislike button mostly from mean spiritedness. --76.178.xxx.xxx

Also adding this: most of the do-it-yourself videos are completely worthless. Posters get paid for their video whether they know what they are doing or not. Often, I see open plagiarism.

I watch dog training videos and I've found a couple of trainers who know what they are doing and I only watch their videos.

There have to be videos in a series made by people who know what they are doing and you just do a search for their name and only watch their videos.

Very much like there are a few landlords here where I would follow their advice and a whole bunch of landlords here that I would not follow their advice. It all has to be sifted through and evaluated. --76.178.xxx.xxx

Oregon Woodsmoke, totally agree on reading the comments. Sometimes I get more value from the comments than the video.

And agree that most are worthless. That is why I was bumbed when youtube took the dislike count away. It removed one screening tool I used. But yes, comments are great. Hopefully, they don't take those away too. --74.102.xx.xx

Bill, they will be gone eventually. They are already disabled on some of the major left wing sites. The saying goes, “when you cut out a mans tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world you fear what he might say”. A lot of tongue cutting these days. --24.152.xxx.xx

Never thought about it, but true, in my very limited experience, CNN and others like them, don't allow comments and more conservative media does. --74.102.xx.xx

That’s right Bill, that’s why you need to gather in groups and do that old fashion practice of talking. Because in the digital realm, folks like you and I are at the mercy of the controllers. --174.198.xx.xxx

I'm reading R.F. Kennedy's book about Fauci. The drug companies could control the media and what we learned about covid and this drug and that one because they would withhold advertising dollars if some media source started talking about anything except the vax. --108.24.xx.xx
