YouTube is more likely to serve problematic videos than useful ones, study (and common sense) finds

Mashable 

Here's a study supported by the objective reality that many of us experience already on YouTube. The streaming video company's recommendation algorithm can sometimes send you on an hours-long video binge so captivating that you never notice the time passing. But according to a study from software nonprofit Mozilla Foundation, trusting the algorithm means you're actually more likely to see videos featuring sexualized content and false claims than personalized interests. In a study with more than 37,000 volunteers, Mozilla found that 71 percent of YouTube's recommended videos were flagged as objectionable by participants. The volunteers used a browser extension to track their YouTube usage over 10 months, and when they flagged a video as problematic, the extension recorded if they came across the video via YouTube's recommendation or on their own.
