Online video company Youtube said on Thursday that it is launching an ‘information panel’ with video related to news reports to remove wrong information and imparting the right one to people.
YouTube has begun to curb bogus reports. A company spokesperson told PTI, “We are expanding the information panel as per our efforts for better news on YouTube. This will allow a video to be verified with the content of the eligible channel. ”
YouTube now offers breaking news and top news features in English in the country. Under this, whenever there is a big event in the country, certified news sources are preferred. The company said that the information panel will be available when any consumer wants to check authenticity related to any news in Hindi or English. YouTube will match any related content to the content of a certain channel.
The spokesperson said that this feature is being first introduced in India. He said that later it would also be made available to other countries. The Google-owned company is working closely with some other third parties, including Boom, Quint, Factley, AFP, Jagaran, to check the authenticity of YouTube news. read more posts…
