YouTube will now allow creators to monetize videos about coronavirus and COVID-19

Instead, YouTube says ads will be enabled on “a limited number of channels” including those belonging to news partners and creators “who accurately self-certify.” The latter is a more questionable choice, as it opens up monetization to any creator using YouTube’s self-labeling system, not just news organizations or trusted health authorities. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch » https://ift.tt/38GYQAV

YouTube to invest $100M in kids’ content that showcases character strengths, like compassion and curiosity

The planned $100 million investment, which will be distributed over the next three years, is meant to help set the tone for the sort of children’s video content YouTube wants to see more of on its video-sharing platform. Today, a number of creators in the kids’ space are gaining views for things like toy unboxings, pranks and family vlogs. For example, Ryan Kaji of “Ryan’s World” and “Ryan ToysReview” was YouTube’s highest-paid star of 2019, pulling in a massive $26 million. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch » https://ift.tt/2twLTuR [photo: Google/YouTube Kids]
