Words escape me…so I will use theirs: ”
-People who believe that the Earth is disc-shaped are called Flat Earthers. (Mmmm, not really…)
-A study found that they watch online videos which convince them of this theory.
-YouTube needs to tweak its algorithm to show more varied and balanced content.
-Researchers attended two conventions and found that nearly all believed the Earth was round two years ago but changed their minds after watching the clips.
The rise in people who think the Earth is flat is caused by convincing YouTube videos that ‘promote misinformation’, psychologists have suggested. Researchers say the platform should present a more balanced list of content rather than one-sided conspiracy theories. They said that YouTube needs to make changes to its algorithms to make their systems more accurate but also called on experts to create content to disprove the claims.”
So, the funny thing about all this? It actually happened EXACTLY like this for MOST of us in this community…
–Thank our lucky stars, Google gotcha!! AI to the rescue: A spokeswoman for Youtube told Mail Online that they are working to provide more context to users about the news they watch on the site.

‘We started showing notices below videos uploaded by news broadcasters that receive some level of government or public funding,’ they said.

They also announced plans to show additional information cues, including a text box or information panel linking to third-party sources around widely accepted events, like the moon landing and are ‘looking to expand these to more topics soon, including flat earth videos’.

‘We recently announced that we’ll begin reducing recommendations of borderline content or videos that could misinform users in harmful ways—such as videos promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historic events like 9/11.’

‘This will be a gradual change and will initially only affect recommendations of a very small set of videos in the United States.

‘Over time, our systems will become more accurate and we’re going to roll this change out to more countries.’ WHEW!!!
