YouTube has removed more than 11.4 million videos in the second quarter of this year. The company said in a statement that the videos, which were found to be against the company’s standards and guidelines, had been removed.
The company has clarified that the videos had to be removed based on the videos’ complaints and its own evaluation.
According to the company, the videos were removed between April and June this year. The company had previously removed less than 9 million videos in 2019. The company estimates that more videos have been removed this year than last.
“Responsibility to society and human beings is our top priority, and we have removed some of the video content with the conclusion that it interferes,” the company said in a statement.
The company is also vigilant about child protection and preventing violence, the statement said.
YouTube has been tightening its standards and guidelines following growing criticism that its popularity as a popular social network grows with each passing day.
