YouTube is known for its monetization policy with content creators where you get paid a percentage of the ad revenue the site gets. This has led to some people earn a living from YouTube and a recent change by the company has led them to complain about the issue.

The whole furore is led by one Philip DeFranco published a video on YouTube called “YouTube Is Shutting Down My Channel and I’m Not Sure What To Do” which has become quite popular and it is nearing over

He even posted about this issue on his Twitter account.

The most contentious issue he had was the one highlighted in red which says “controversial or sensitive subjects an events, including subjects related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and tragedies, even if graphic imagery is not shown.” He usually posts what was happening in the news and this affects him directly.

The YouTube team responded to his claims on Twitter where they iterated that there was no policy change but an improved notification process.

But…if you check this notice this channel got, you will understand that the policy change is all about the relationship about the content of the video and being advertiser friendly.

This situation led people to call out on YouTube on Twitter and it brought about the creation of a hashtag #YouTubeIsOverParty where they made fun of the future of the largest online video repository.

Well this move is not popular with creators and viewers alike and might trigger them to move to other platforms that offer them incentives. As an example, Twitter recently launched such an initiative where they are willing to give creators a bigger percentage of the ad revenue when compared to YouTube.
