The most popular video sharing platform YouTube plans to remove all advertisement targeted as content which kids might watch. This removal is to fulfill the Federal Trade Commission Policy on children’s privacy online. The plan to remove such ads came as a result of YouTube falling out with the Federal Trade Commission who is intensely looking to see if the video sharing platform breached the children’s online privacy act (COPPA). There are assumptions that the company’s ads sale might be affected by this move.
In response to the complaint from people to the chairman of Federal Trade Commission Mr Joseph Simons, he presented the idea of removing ads from kid’s contents on YouTube.
