YouTube has decided not to show ads related to alcohol, speculative and prescription drugs, and elections and politics on its platform. However, these ads will not be shown on the home page. Know what is the reason for this.
Political or election-related ads will no longer be visible in the masthead on YouTube. The world’s largest video-sharing platform has decided that the site’s home page will not display ads related to alcohol, speculative and prescription drugs, as well as elections and politics. The company said in an e-mail that the change is based on the company’s move last year to retire all-day masthead advertising.
Why did YouTube take such a decision?
The company said that the entire day’s reservation has been removed, as was seen in the US election. In the recently held US election, the then US President Donald Trump had reserved the home page of YouTube on the day of Election Day to exert his influence. Along with this, he replaced these ads with a more targeted format.
A Google spokesperson said in an email statement, “We regularly review our advertising requirements and strive to ensure that the needs of both users and advertisers are met.” This update will retain the changes made last year. We will continue to work like this for better user experience.’ Also Read – POCO M3 Pro 5G will be launched in India today, know how much it can cost
