Social media and third-party applications

Ads or Brand Channels which include social media from third party sites or applications may only incorporate content which is owned and controlled by the advertiser.

In addition to the above restrictions, when ads or Brand Channels incorporate third-party or Google-owned applications or APIs, all ads must meet the following criteria:

  • Advertiser must be wholly compliant with third party's terms and/or have third-party approval where applicable.
  • Advertiser must use an approved or official version of the API or application.
  • Advertiser may not pass any data from the third party either to or through YouTube's servers.

Additionally, some APIs will not be permitted on YouTube. You can check in with your sales contact for more information.
