YouTube videos featuring children rank in highest views Pew study says

first_img YouTube Videos featuring children were the most popular during the first week of 2019, a Pew research study finds.  Getty YouTube’s ties to videos with children just got even more awkward. In the first week of 2019, videos featuring children under the age of 13 brought in three times as many views as any other content, according to a new study by Pew Research Center released Thursday. The details come a week after YouTube parent company Google reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission over alleged violations of child data privacy laws on YouTube. The settlement followed an FTC investigation into whether Google was protecting children’s data. YouTube doesn’t intend for its main platform to be used by those under 13 and directs a younger audience to use YouTube Kids.Pew analyzed videos published in the first week of January by 43,770 channels, all of which featured more than 250,000 subscribers. Collectively, the channels in the Pew study posted nearly a quarter-million videos and spanned 48,486 hours.”A single person watching videos for eight hours a day (with no breaks or days off) would need more than 16 years to watch all the content posted by just the most popular channels on the platform during a single week,” the study added. In other findings, 18% of English-language videos analyzed in the study were related to gaming. These videos were often longer in length than other content. Also, videos with keywords such as “Fortnite,” “prank” or “worst” received five times as many views as videos not mentioning those words. Earlier this year, Wired reported on how pedophiles were using the comment section of YouTube videos with children to lure in other predators. Neither Pew Research Center nor YouTube immediately respond to a request for comment.  Share your voice Mobile Internet Applications Computers Mobile Apps Internet Services TV and Movies YouTube accused of violating child privacy laws Now playing: Watch this:center_img Comment Tags 1 2:22last_img read more

Dont stereotype us Women sex workers urge Indian showbiz

first_img“I am a woman first and then a sex worker,” Kiran Ramchandra Deshmukh, 40, says with pride, in the hope that the world treats women like her with equality, dignity and respect. Kiran, a sex worker for over 20 years in Maharashtra, notes how the world of showbiz has portrayed sex workers over the years and isn’t impressed by the stereotyping. She takes offence at the dialogue ‘Aurat maa hoti hai, bahen hoti hai, patni hoti hai, dost hoti hai… aur jab woh kuch nahi hoti, toh tawaif hoti hai (woman is a mother, a sister, a wife, a friend. When she is nothing, she is a prostitute) from the 2002 film Devdas. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”According to the dialogue, we don’t even deserve to be called women? That’s not fair. I can proudly say that I am a woman,” said Kiran. Renuka, another sex worker, has urged filmmakers not to show them as “use and throw” objects – as it happened in Salman Khan’s movie Chori Chori Chupke Chupke on surrogacy. Indian filmmakers have time and again delved into the life of women sex workers. Mughal-e-Azam, Mausam, Mandi, Devdas, Chandni Bar, and Begum Jaan are movies that have delved into their world, but sex workers and activists say these films do not reflect the real world. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSocial activist and lawyer Aarthi Pai says mainstream cinema has done a lot of damage to “the identity of sex workers”. “There has been some niche cinema which has attempted to show sex workers in a much more positive light, but most of the movies have shown them in dangerous type of stereotyping. Dangerous because it has harmed sex workers over the years. “This stereotype of sex workers hanging out in verandahs and showing their breasts, chewing betel is one which dominates public imagination. Sex workers are of different types and they have different realities. Unfortunately, great injustice is done to them through the movies.” Kiran said it is a reality that not everyone is forced into sex work. “Many women like me are willingly doing it to earn our livelihood. Even we have the right to say ‘No’.” Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, whose deft handling of a story of a bar dancer won a National Award, says people shouldn’t forget sex workers are humans too. “They are also humans. They are being discriminated in our society. People are not willing to give them a house… They are a part of our society and we should accept them with open arms.” Most recently, Tabrez Noorani’s Love Sonia took a deep dive into the world of human trafficking. Actress Richa Chadha, who played a brothel owner in the film, said in an interview: “Bollywood is as responsible as society is, in stereotyping sex workers… Very few films have depicted the truth about this bleak world.” Love Sonia protagonist Mrunal Thakur calls for films which create a powerful impact on society and make people more educated and aware. “What we see in the films is just a fraction of what these girls go through in life.”last_img read more
