Google Tightens YouTube Rules To Clean It Up For Advertisers. Google is making the biggest changes to the advertising rules on YouTube since the video site’s inception, another attempt to clean up its content and answer persistent complaints from advertisers. (Bloomberg) Over the past year, YouTube has tweaked several of its policies, upping the requirement for channels to hit 10,000 views, for example, and adding more staffers to vet videos. Still, brand safety has quickly become a more mainstream problem. As of just last week at CES, execs were quick to point to brand safety concerns as among their biggest gripes with Google and Facebook. (Adweek) YouTube said Tuesday that human reviewers would watch every second of video in its curated lineup of top content, dubbed Google Preferred, which brands pay a premium to advertise on. Human reviewers also will have to approve new videos uploaded by Google Preferred. (WSJ) Additionally, effective immediately, to apply for monetization (and have ads attached to videos), creators must have tallied 4,000 hours of overall watch time on their channel within the past 12 months and have at least 1,000 subscribers. YouTube will enforce the new eligibility policy for all existing channels as of Feb. 20, meaning that channels that fail to meet the threshold will no longer be able to make income from ads. (The Verge) Previously, the minimum threshold to participate in the revenue-sharing program was 10,000 views. But according to YouTube, that didn’t provide enough information to weed out “bad actors” like spammers and impersonators. YouTube also is rolling out a three-tiered “suitability system” for advertisers to select their level of comfort with content they’re buying ads against. (Variety) The changes come after months of YouTube weathering advertiser unrest and public criticism for the videos it hosts—and the ads it plays against them. The company has shown ads for major brands next to videos depicting hate speech. It’s also hosted disturbing cartoons in its YouTube Kids section, and allowed Logan Paul’s troubling video featuring the body of a person who had recently committed suicide to show ads and reach its “Trending” section. (Mashable)

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.
