YouTube To Hide Dislike Count, Button Visible to Tune Recommendations

Creators will be able to view the dislike count on YouTube Studio

Yes, the title says it all. Users can no longer see the number of dislikes on a YouTube video. Creators will be able to view the dislike count on YouTube Studio. This step is taken to promote respectful interactions between creators and viewers, says YouTube in a blog post.

The YouTube team tested this feature back in this year among a small group of people, and the results led to the decision to roll out this feature for everyone. Hiding the dislike number surely does help smaller creators. When users influenced by others troll/bully smaller creators by just disliking their videos, it negatively impacts the creator’s growth and mentally takes a toll on the person.

This might give you an idea of what we are talking about.

At certain times viewers will dislike a video to drive the dislike count higher, and when other viewers notice this, it might create an impression of the video being bad. The video might be good, but the dislike count might drive away new viewers, who would be potential subscribers.

This might give you an idea of what we are talking about.

The dislike button is here to stay. When you dislike a video, the algorithm takes note of your likes and dislikes in specific genres and is less likely to suggest videos of creators you disliked.

The YouTube algorithm has been often praised for recommending topics viewers would be interested in. The algorithm also gets a bad rap from creators for not recommending their videos enough, acting strangely, not notifying subscribers, etc.

However, there is no denying that YouTube has allowed more than millions of people worldwide to access information that would otherwise not be readily available. The creators play a crucial role in this, and this should help them further.
