Youtube to hide dislike counts to protect content creators from harassment

Youtube to hide dislike counts to protect content creators from harassment
Nov 12 2021 Share

YouTube will be making a massive change to it’s platform as it tries to protect its content creators from harassment. 

The giant video-streamer will be hiding dislike counts on videos, with the service rolling out a new feature on Wednesday which keeps counts private and only viewable to the person who uploaded the content. 

The dislike button will still remain available however, so views can still tune their personal recommendations. The change was in turn prompted by an experiment conducted by YouTube earlier this year. 

The experiment tested whether changes to the dislike button could help protect content creators from harassment and ‘dislike attacks’ (wherein viewers purposefully dislike a video to drive up the count). 

YouTube stated that smaller creators and those just getting started were constantly being attacked by such behaviour and this measure would help their progression as creators. 

For a little bit of trivia, the most disliked video in the world is YouTube’s very own ‘Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind’ at 19.67 million followed by the Baby Shark Dance video at 14.45 million.

A post shared by Shark Tank Malta (@sharktankmt)

‘The Sharks will give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the business dream and potentially secure business deals that could them turn their ideas into a viable business.’ 

The Sharks have a goal too, and that is to get a return on their investment and own a piece of the next big business idea. ‘When the Sharks hear an idea worth sinking their teeth into, there more than ready to declare war and fight each other for a piece of it.’ 

The local licensed producers of Shark Tank Malta, Anton Attard and Mark Grech from Greatt Company Limited, thanked Malta Enterprise for their sterling work in the industry. 

‘We believe that this programme will bring the necessary awareness and the ideal opportunities for many young founders that need that extra set of skills and capital injection that only the ‘sharks’ can bring to the table.’ 

This is the chance for all local entrepreneurs – it will be hitting Maltese TV screens on Television Malta in April 2022. To apply, follow the link here!

7-1 loss for Malta against Croatia at Ta’ Qali national stadium

7-1 loss for Malta against Croatia at Ta’ Qali national stadium
Nov 12 2021 Share

Maltese football fans were left rather disappointed yesterday after our national team lost 7-1 against world class Croatia. 

This was the worst result in Malta’s otherwise successful World Cup qualifying campaign. It will also see Croatia going onwards with two points of current leader Russia. 

The Maltese were ready for the match of their lives, with the evening kicking off with an unfortunate start as Perisic scored a home in the first five minutes. With a second goal for Croatia in the 22nd minute, the Maltese brought up their score through a Brozovic goal. 

The night however continued in Croatia’s favour, with the first half ending at 4-1 for Croatia, rounding them up to 7 goals in the second half. 

Malta will be facing Slovenia this Sunday in a home match. Yesterday night’s result will hopefully not deter Devis Mangia’s team from pushing forward. The team proved to hold their own previously and the campaign is far from over. 

The coach has already expressed his courageous approach, stating ‘This is the moment to stay behind the team. I stand behind my players, we will not throw away 2 years of work’.
