Upcoming changes to kids content on YouTube.com

7/13/21 Update: 
In the coming months, we’ll be introducing some new features across supervised accounts and ‘made for kids’ content to help further distinguish certain video advertising content from organic content. This means your child may see an ad bumper (to alert them when an advertisement is starting and ending) before and after a video ad is shown. If they click an ad, there will be a disclaimer to let them know they are navigating away from YouTube. We're first testing with a small percentage of people to help us find potential issues and fix them before rolling out more broadly. 

1/6/20 Update:
Starting today, certain features that rely on user data, such as comments and personalized advertising, will no longer be available on content made for kids. This is to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). You can see a full list of features that will be limited or turned off on content that is made for kids in this Help Center article.

You can read more on the YouTube blog and we’ll continue to keep this thread updated with answers to top questions.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*** 11/12/19 ACTION REQUIRED FOR ALL CREATORS - COMPLYING WITH COPPA ***

Note: Regardless of your location, all creators are legally required to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and/or other laws.

Starting today, all creators will be required to indicate whether or not their content is made for kids. To help you do this, we’re rolling out a new audience setting in YouTube Studio. 

We’ll also use machine learning to help us identify kids content – so don’t be alarmed if your audience has already been set for you by YouTube. You should still review your videos and make sure the audience setting is correct for all content on your channel. If you need help determining whether or not your content is made for kids, see our Help Center or consult legal counsel.

Starting in January, we’ll limit the data we collect on made for kids content to comply with the law. This means we’ll start disabling certain features like comments, notifications, and others. You may see some small changes before then as we experiment and refine our systems over the next few months. These tests help us find potential issues and fix them before rolling out more broadly, and is standard practice for platform changes.

More info to help get you started with today’s YouTube Studio updates: 
  • To bulk update all existing videos at once and set a default for future uploads, use the channel level setting. Go to Settings > Channel > Advanced settings > Audience and then choose an option that best describes your channel. Detailed instructions here.

  • If some of your videos don’t align with your channel-level setting, you can select a different setting at the video level. Go to Videos > Select video(s) > Edit > Audience. Detailed instructions here.

  • Even creators who don’t make content for kids should set their audience as “not made for kids” at the channel level. This also helps ensure our automated systems make the right decisions for your videos.

  • For videos with an audience setting of made for kids, personalized ads will show as disabled in YouTube Studio starting today, but personalized ads won’t actually be disabled until we start testing and rolling out the changes to limit data collection (which is happening separately). 
For more, check out this YouTube Creators video and our Help Center.

9/4/19 Announcement

Today we announced important steps we’re taking to help us better protect data on kids content on YouTube. This includes several upcoming changes to kids content on YouTube.com that will go into effect in the upcoming months. You can read the full update on the YouTube blog

We’ll keep this thread updated with answers to top questions, and any additional information and resources over the coming months.

My channel is entirely dedicated to children,
And you are basically saying that we will not be able to monetize content for kids? after years of work and millions of subscribers? YouTube kids income is insignificant compared to the YouTube platform, it will not be worth adding material for such a small income.
the real affected are the producers because of your lack of control or rather your hunger for control ... We would like to know what solutions are you going to give ? many of your most important channels are for children and by eliminating profits I don't think it is still business.

Cable monopolies win again! Nickelodeon, Disney, Cartoon Network, PBS, and all major companies like ABC,CBS, FOX and many others with their dedicated time slots will continue to run ads dedicated for such age groups, racking in billions while personal talented creators get left in the dust. There is no such thing as web neutrality anymore after recent administration and FTC pocketing. I'm confused by this ruling and decision by you tube to cut off what has made them relevant in such age group in the first place.

Also if you guys are gonna do this I wouldn't say anything when all the good YouTubers leave and go to Twitch and Mixer. Because some people not on swearing in their videos. And YouTube money pays for their bills you know. Doing this can kill their whole career. So not only are you guys messing up our dreams. Your messing your selves up. And YouTube are some people lives and a lot of  13+ like kid videos. And then adding on to that if you do this you're gonna make Roblox less popular and then same for all the other games. So your also destroying the Internet....I hope you guys think your doing the right thing here because I just spoke for Billions of people who all think the same thing. We don't want to start cursing so were gonna leave or you guys change your minds and don't do it at all. Also this is not "Protecting YouTube" its destroying it and now those "KIDS" will go for "NON-KID FRIENDLY VIDEOS" so their gonna be watching stuff and get into that stuff. So minus well just delete YouTube eh. You People Are Destroying Yourselves!

My kids and I have been working so hard lately on creative kid-friendly content for their channels.  It has been a fun thing for us to do together and they are so proud of their final product when it's posted to their channels.  Of course, they are also in it to build an audience and eventually monetize their channels.  Are you saying that they can no longer monetize at all? I'm confused, so if you could please clarify the monetization part that would be helpful.  If they truly cannot ever monetize their videos then I guess we will (sadly) have to switch to a new platform.  Surely there must be a way to comply with the new law and still allow kids to monetize their videos.

This is very unfair to the hard working content creators! Kids can find and watch stuff they should not be if they want. Get real! The internet is full of things for them to find.

This is no fair for many content creators. I know it's a way to keep children safe but giving the creator a punishment. This would never have happened if parents would watch their kids. Kids aren't supposed to be allowed on YouTube anyway if they're not 13+. There has got to be another way to do this. Now it's understandable how some people are sick and to protect children and teens is great, but judging if your a kid by what videos you watch shouldn't really count.

if the content I produce is aimed at older audiences and designate it as such but:

1. for some reason a lot of kids end up watching it despite them not being the target audience. does that make my video targeted at kids?

2. I use background images, cartoon clips or whatnot because it that stuff gets the point across (describing a case of greed and having a clip of Mr. Krabs in a literal money shower in he background to emphasis the greed)... whats to stop the bot/AI/machine learning  from viewing my entire video as targeted at kids because of that one clip or several similar clips used then hitting my channel with a rule violation and penalties?

side note: why not collect only the age and which country they reside in from a user, if they fall under below 13 years of age nothing further will be collected and if older then you can collect more?

So you're telling me that make videos with a toy it's automatically kid friendly. You're going to be taking away all of the things that make YouTube YouTube. My audience won't be able to comment they won't be able to press the notifications and they will be able to give me likes. I also can't have ads. There's a thing called Kid YouTube for a reason. I hate this parents should monitor their kids not us. It's not our fault that they made bad decisions by letting their kid explore the entire darn web. We are creators and I'll pay for that by taking away our abilities from YouTube because we just so happen to make videos with toys or something that apparently to you is kid friendly. I disagree with this because you can say it's not kidfriendly so then kids can't watch but then if it is kid-friendly you don't have anything that YouTube offers you. It's ridiculous.

I am wondering what the guidelines will be. My toy and learning channel has been significantly impacted by some recent changes. If it had views, up to 1.5 million a day, it means that kids liked it....subscriptions went up and many positive comments, eg kids learning English, fun etc...but, the channel drastically dropped. Now the views are only 15000 per day.  I spent a year building this channel up and now, nothing. Are you going to give creators the information needed to make their channels viable. My channel is already monetised. Will you be taking that away? Will you be taking all kids channels off regular YouTube and only having kids content on kids YouTube? Have you flagged the channels and there will be now hope for them ? Will we need to make a new channel with different content?  When will you let the creators know what is actually going to happen and how we can actually fix our channels to make them compliant  and will you let us know, and in what manner this will occur? Direct email? An announcement on your blog? Will there be a way to still keep our channel as a business when the new changes (Creators really need to know what new changes ) come in? Really need more information please. And the sooner the better really.

What if my videos use toys like, “Barbies And Bratz dolls” but my video demographic is for young adults? They are stop motions and are not written for children. My “stop motion skits”, DO NOT fit in on the YouTube kids app but you said “toys could be considered as kids content”. 

You also stated that creators know their content more than anyone else and I know that I have an adult audience that watches my videos. So where do I fit in all of this? 

Do I just stop making these videos. They are for comedy purposes and are clean with no cursing or sexual nature but I have funny crude jokes in them that would not be good for children to watch.

Please. I just want to know where I fit in. This is my recreation, a way to take a break from my life and just put a smile on people’s faces. My audience wants me to continue the videos but I just need to know how to handle it so I don’t get in trouble with YouTube.

Ability to whitelist channels and videos is exactly what youtube kids needed from the parent/client side.  That being said, due to the algorithm (or new practices implemented here) a lot of GOOD kids' content is missing from youtube kids for seemingly no reason.  Apart from it being "hurtful" to creators that their videos would not get explored, is there any chance that some of these restrictions could be relaxed if the "only approved content" is selected on the kids profile.  Lets be honest the only way to truly prevent crap from getting to your kids app is to use the whitelist feature.  Can we leave that mode out of all this restriction?

Dear YouTube,
I am concerned about the new rules regarding content that is considered appealing to kids. The category is so broad, and mostly discriminatory towards majoritarily female creators. Many of the top DIY and Craft channels are predominantly females. Arts, crafts, DIYs, and even toy customizations are not exclusively child-content and should not be considered as such just because they are playful. Many of the “male” DIYers use materials like metal, wood, and heavy machinery; they will not be impacted because their materials are not considered to be “childish”. This goes back to the same idea where “female” dominated careers made significantly less than “male” dominated careers. Or even females within the same career earn less than their male counterparts in the same domain. I urge you to reconsider finer arts and crafts and customizations as ART and educational for all ages. The manner in which content is presented should be more important than the item itself. A Squishy can be played with, yes, but it can also be turned into a new work of art. A craft kit review can be played with (for children), yes, but it can also be a great way for consumers (those with purchasing power) to know how to save their money. THE MANNER the content is presented, should matter more than what is on screen. Dolls in a video can be played with, but Doll Customization is also transformative art and expression. Please, do not put all creators in the same boat. Where does the line cross over from geek fandom celebration, to child-appealing? Context and presentation matter…not just the subject. Please consider some of my favorite creators, who are artists, crafters, and DIYers who are mostly female, who would suffer from this prejudice that their talents and passions would be considered “childish”.

I have some worries about this.

-Who will happen to people who collect toys like a hobby? they review toys, show their quality, teach about how identify a real one to a fake, show where they buy them or their history...who is an activity more related to adults than kids (even if the content is safe for children, the videos are directed to other collectors)...
-Who will happen with people who review new toys, but for parents? (for test them if really are good quality, if really are a good toy for their children, etc) who is completly safe for everyone.
-Who will happen with people who teach crafts? some crafts can be create toys, but create a toy not need to be a only kid activity. Make toys is an art too. Is something who adults can do like a hobby, like a work. some requires a certain hability who definitly a child cant do alone. But still safe, is completly educative.
-Who will happen to crafters who restaure/repaint toys and dolls? a delicate process who can recicle a completly destroyed toy into a new one, or take a normal doll and customize it into a new character, with a new design and spirit. this channels are very popular into people of all ages, specially artists. Completly safe, but directed for young adults and adults interested in do similar things in old and new toys.
-Who will happen with channels who show cute things? some people do this channels for kids, but others review cute things for adults who like or collects cute things. Cute things are very related with childish stuff, so the A.I. can confuse them easily with child content.
-Who will happen with woman crafters? they can use materials who can be considered "childish related" woman do toys for their kids, like pluchies, dolls, figures, and do tutorials for share to other woman who want to learn. This is ART, is CULTURE, and YT have the power to show different expressions from all the world.

-Who will happen with toy making? will end lost into the A.I. who try to do the work well, but cant know the difference between a cat and a clowd, and only can learn using numbers and stadistics?

Please respond. Lots of people can lives thanks of this. Im only a subscriptor who enjoy artistic content, and a doll collector. Im worried of all my faborite channels and the future of their creators.

You know what? I wonder what would happen if EVERYONE deleted YouTube for being so silly. I definitely would. Your going to lose SO much money for making those nonsense rules. There are so many youtubers that have “childish” content where they either paint a squishy to show their passion for art, they review “childish” craft kits because it’s what they like to do. Who says that toys and kits and so many other things are just for children? Does the packing of toys say 6-12? No it says 6 and up be telling most of those YouTube grown  I am so disappointed in YouTube. So many years watching it and ACTUALLY enjoying it. And don’t you guys think that people will not try to stop this rule because in my opinion (and in many others opinion) it’s not correct.

This is not the case with others who use slime, squish’s and dolls to create fun artsy content. I urge you to reconsider finer arts and crafts and customizations as ART and educational for all ages. The manner in which content is presented should be more important than the item itself. A Squishy can be played with, yes, but it can also be turned into a new work of art. A craft kit review can be played with (for children), yes, but it can also be a great way for consumers (those with purchasing power) to know how to save their money. Those who review products that seem childish are NOT the children, but parents who are planing on buying those products.  THE MANNER the content is presented, should matter more than what is on screen. Dolls in a video can be played with, but Doll Customization is also transformative art and expression. Please, do not put all creators in the same boat. Where does the line cross over from geek fandom celebration, to child-appealing? Context and presentation matter…not just the subject. Please consider some of my favorite creators, who are artists, crafters, and DIYers, who would suffer from this prejudice that their talents and passions would be considered “childish”. Instead of heavily punishing the content makers, maybe look into way of making it harder for children to get access, like making a system where a pin or password must be put in to access certain content.

How will the changes affect educational videos?  My videos are targeted for science teachers, but the teachers are showing the videos to their students (k-12).  

I am just starting my channel, and have only uploaded 230 of the science videos from my website.  I need to know ASAP if this is going to kill my chance of monetization before spending the time and effort to finish building an audience and adding the rest of my videos, much less making any more.  So far, it sounds like I need to immediately delete my videos and leave.  If you have tagged my channel as a kids' channel, let me know!

In fact, YouTube already knows.  If YouTube was fined for using collected data to send children to child-oriented sites, then they know which sites they were sending them to, and should be able to easily notify those sites.

What about us family vloggers?  We make videos for all ages showing what’s Life in our shoes.  We mostly have an audience of 18-40...so obviously it’s not for kids... but just because our kids appear in the video; I heard we will AUTOMATICALLY be put into the kid category?    Hope to hear back from a Moderator to clarify please. 
  Thank you.

Why can't you just require anyone under 13 (or whatever your cutoff is) to have a kids account.  Then don't track them.  If they are not using a kids' account, you are not at fault for tracking them.  No problem.  No one loses their way of earning a living.

"learning to help us identify kids content. Some examples of kids content include videos that have an emphasis on kids’ characters, themes, toys, or games."

So if someone put sex toy in his video, it categories as kids content?
