This Tuesday, 30, Youtube announced on its Twitter that it is testing a new feature where the numbers of dislikes will not appear. “In response to targeted hate campaigns, we are testing some new formats that do not show the number of public dislike,” they said.
The testing has already started and should take a few more weeks until the new format is implemented or not. YouTube also said that the change was made based on feedback from the creators themselves.
The company also made it clear that for channel owners, the metrics will remain visible. “Creators, you’ll still be able to see the exact number of likes and dislikes on YouTube Studio”
