YouTube is about to make it significantly difficult to earn that desirable “verified” grade. The service has summarized a renovation of the verification procedure that will remove the earlier 100,000-user need in support of accepting channels on the basis of prominence and authenticity. It must behave more similar to verification on social networks, in different words—there has to be an actual concern that somebody may mimic a channel or otherwise spark puzzlement
Any channel that meets the latest needs will receive the treatment automatically when the upgraded verification system is all set to lunch next month. While those that do not will get notices and must plea if they think it is an error.
The website is changing how it shows verified users at the same time. Rather than positioning a musical note or checkmark close to a channel’s moniker, YouTube will add a gray background to the text. This will make it more obvious that verification is not supported on YouTube’s end, and make it that much difficult for fake verification.
YouTube has not claimed just how it will verify channels without their participation, but media has heard that it will employ a mix of human inspection and algorithms to make judgment decisions.
These efforts might enhance the amount of trust in YouTube. The 100,000-user need made it achievable to game the system by adding as many users as possible, even if there was nothing particular about the videos or channel.
On a related note, your YouTube experience in the living room is about to turn out to be decidedly more crowded. YouTube is launching its normal Masthead ad to the home screen of its TV application, assuring that you will see a promo before anything else. While the behavior is the same as what you have witnessed on the web and mobile, the size will be huge.
