YouTube is asking users to help moderate content

September 21, 2016

Part of the new ‘Community’ section.

As YouTube is preparing to launch its new community section on some of its famous channels, it is also launching a program that would allow users to moderate content. Called YouTube Heroes, you’ll get to check and preview early features that come to YouTube in exchange for your moderation services.

This move was to further filter out trolls that usually post on the comments section – writing hateful and sometimes offensive comments. “YouTube Heroes is a global community of volunteer contributors that help create the best possible YouTube experience for everyone. Heroes flag inappropriate content, add captions and subtitles to videos, and share their knowledge with other users on the YouTube Help forum*, unlocking exclusive rewards along the way. The YouTube Heroes program is offered everywhere YouTube is available,” it said in a blog post.
