Google is heard to be developing an exclusive YouTube for kids under 10. Though the present YouTube too has lots of content for kids, there is always the worry of unsuitable content cropping up despite the several filters in place. The filters are mostly successful in blocking the content but some objectionable advertisements still find their way in.
The new YouTube will be entirely kids friendly with the possibility of very limited ads allowed, sources say. The comments will also be disabled blocking the chance of objectionable language spilling out. The new site will have a separate app as well.
YouTube presently has special kids channels like YouTube Disney, YouTube EDU etc. YouTube is about nine years old, it is the third most visited website on the internet. Over 6 crore hours of video is watched every month, with about five crore videos streamed per day.
