Does Logan Paul deserve a second chance, bro? (Tylt)

Does Logan Paul deserve a second chance, bro? (Tylt)

Logan Paul was spotted at LAX Monday afternoon after YouTube cut business ties with the vlogger late last week-and he seemed happy to see a camera.

Meanwhile, YouTube will "more closely monitor" community strikes, spam, and other abuse flags that should be harder-to-game to ensure policy compliance. In YouTube's blog post, the company said that 99 percent of the creators affected by the new changes earn less than $100 a year from YouTube ads.

He also implied that he had more to say on the subject at a later date.

"We expect to complete manual reviews of Google Preferred channels and videos by mid-February in the USA, and by the end of March in all other markets where Google Preferred is offered", added Muret. Previously, channels had to reach 10,000 total views to be eligible for the YouTube Partner Program (YPP).

YouTuber Logan Paul received a whole lot of backlash recently after posting a video containing footage of a suicide victim, and now he says everyone deserves a second chance. Effective immediately, to apply for monetization (and have ads attached to videos), creators must have tallied 4,000 hours of overall watch time on their channel within the past 12 months and have at least 1,000 subscribers.

A Business Insider investigation past year revealed that Google, which had billed Preferred as the cream of the crop for major advertisers contemplating shifting ad budgets from TV to YouTube, did not have a handle on what kinds of videos were featured as part of it.

Paul claimed he was attempting to raise awareness to mental health, but the video was deleted and YouTube removed all of Paul's channels from Google Preferred. New channels will need to apply, and their application will be evaluated when they hit these milestones.

In this case, YouTube is promising full human video vetting for Google Preferred, the company's four-year-old ad offering that enables marketers to run ads only in the top 5% of YouTube channels in terms of popularity. As we mentioned in December, we needed a fresh approach to advertising on YouTube.

The last change YouTube is implementing in the coming months is transparency for both advertisers and creators, introducing a "three-tier suitability system that allows advertisers to reflect their view of appropriate placements for their brand".
