I’ve been provided an analysis by a friend in the tech industry who has a firm that performs advanced analytics on social media and particularly YouTube .
This analysis has led me to the very reluctant decision to archive all videos related to SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19. While the videos themselves are not inflammatory in nature, I’m now convinced the topic itself may have enormous volatility regarding the algorithms YT makes use of (at least at this time).
I can’t discuss him or his firm’s methodology beyond this (and had him sign off on this language before posting).
Comments are turned off for the video announcing this because they can also impact these variables, but you can comment here at this blog post.
