YouTube should start filtering what goes onto its site if it wants to keep its service child friendly. You'll know what I mean when you go onto YouTube's most-recently uploaded videos. There you'll get some vides with the title "lick" and "asian girl." I'll just leave it at that. Seems like YouTube is following in the footsteps of Paris Hilton.
To be sure, YouTube doesn't want this material on its service. The problem is that it's still small and probably doesn't have the man power to police the service. MySpace has 100 people on staff in its customer service department. Videos are filtered before they can be publicly posted.
To be fair to YouTube, the two videos were taken down. I caught them when they were up for 14 minutes. Here's what Julie Supan (spokeswoman) said:
"Our policy prohibits inappropriate content on YouTube. Our community understands the rules and effectively polices the site for inappropriate material. The users can flag content that they feel is inappropriate and once it is flagged it is reviewed by us and removed from the system within minutes. This combined with our proprietary technology helps us to enforce the rules. We also disable the accounts of repeat offenders. Community policing is very effective in open communities, such as ours - similear to the model created by eBay, Amazon.com and Craigslist."
