YouTube testing with hiding dislikes on creators’ videos to protect their well-being

YouTube is experimenting with hiding ‘dislikes’ on creators’ videos to discourage “dislike mobs” from “deliberately downvoting videos” from channels and creators. This particular experiment is slightly different from other solutions YouTube had previously thought of to stop dislike mobs from pulling a video down, but it is similar to the attempts other platforms like Instagram has made to stop these targeted attacks from the go.

As YouTube has announced, under the experimental setup, stats for both likes and dislikes are going to be visible on the creator/channel’s individual YouTube Studio page. However, only the likes will be displayed publicly on the video.Initially when YouTube announced that it was looking to address this targeted dislike issue, they had thought of three ideas – hiding the number of likes and dislikes both, adding more interaction before you can dislike something and removing likes and dislikes entirely.
