Does YouTube Algorithm always push strange videos? These tricks “correct the regression” of the algorithm
Mozilla, the maker of the Firefox browser, recently released a survey report that pointed out that as many as 71% of the “disgusting videos” reported by YouTube users were recommended by the YouTube algorithm. And 43.6% of the content has nothing to do with the latest film.
The report also shows that YouTube even recommends videos that violate its own community policies, such as related videos involving hate speech, violent content, fake messages, scams, and so on. Among the reported videos, about 200 have now been deleted by YouTube.
If you want to improve this type of recommendation algorithm problem, Mozilla recommends that users go to the “YouTube watch history” and “YouTube search history” on the “YouTube data management” page to delete content that they don’t want to see in the future. Will stop counting these records.
In addition, users can also turn off auto-play, turn off recommendation notifications, or use YouTube in private browsing mode from now on, all of which can prevent further “harassment” by the YouTube algorithm.
