Some of YouTube’s most popular stars is the site for the “experiment with have criticized” how to make your videos directly to your fans.

The Manipulation of the subscription feed with algorithms that could make it more difficult for smaller channels to get your content seen.

YouTube-the last experiment, in which he said, appeared a “small number” of users – changed the order of the videos in the feed. Instead of showing the latest videos up, YouTube said the feed is manipulated shows the people, “the videos that you want to see”.Why are YouTube stars annoying?

“If I subscribe to a Youtube channel, that is to say to me: “More, please, please, please’,” says video-maker Gary C.

“I don’t expect to be force-fed things YouTube ‘thinks’ I should see. I have almost 47,000 people, said “Yes”, but I am regularly asked whether or not I post more videos.”

Technology-vlogger Marques Brownlee – who is more than six million subscribers, said prioritisation videos “you think we want to see,” was a “business move”. But he added: “It is a subscription box. User chose to subscribe to. You want to see it all. If you terminate not to, will you.”

“People use the subscriptions tab in the first place, the avoidance of this kind of algorithmic behaviour on the platform,” said games reviewer Sean McLoughlin, who produced the videos, like Jacksepticeye. “Please keep that to the home page and recommendations.”

Lifestyle vlogger Alfie Deyes, who has more than said five million subscribers on the platform, it is the “worst decision that YouTube has in the past nine years I have been making videos”.What did YouTube?

YouTube said the experiment appeared to be only a “small number” of people. He stressed that the “personalized” feed was optional, and that it was not planning to remove the chronological feed.

But YouTube told the BBC that people with the “personalized” feed the videos were longer.

YouTube has shifted its focus from the number of views that a video, attracting a total “watch time”. Video-makers are now asked to produce more videos that keep the viewers on the platform for more.

The change explains why, so far, short videos on how to DIY demonstrations or “how-to” tutorials, and now are often pulled over for 10 minutes or more.

“We are currently testing a setting that allows users to sort the subscriptions feed based on the contents, a user usually deals with the most,” the company said in a statement.

“This is one of the many small experiments, we run all the time on YouTube.”

A video-editor of YouTube suggested to his communication algorithm experiments.

“Tell us, or E-Mail before you ‘experiment’ is to roll-out,” said Seth Brown. “It’s not that hard guys.”
