    YouTube deleted 8 million videos for content violations

    YouTube deleted over eight million videos during the fourth quarter of 2017 for violating their content policies, according to numbers released by the company on Tuesday.

    Over six million of these videos were deleted automatically before any viewers saw them. The company said that most of the deleted videos were spam or adult content.

    The numbers in YouTube’s new Community Guidelines enforcement report are part of Google’s quarterly transparency report.

    The disclosure comes as YouTube has faced criticism that it does not properly police content on its platform. Over the past two years, major companies have pulled ads from YouTube after their advertisements showed up alongside extremist and hateful content.

    Recently, Procter & Gamble and Under Armour pulled ads from the video streaming service over those concerns.

    Lawmakers have also scrutinized YouTube over extremist content on its platform.

    The company said that it has ramped up its efforts to use algorithms to detect and remove such videos. But it also relied on humans to flag over 1.5 million videos that its automated systems missed.

    This Deletion is in response to the demonetization at Youtube.
