Commentary and forum post to YouTube by me on dangerous activities by children under 13
I, recently, started using YouTube more often for entertainment and curiosity. And I noticed something quite disturbing on YouTube. A lot of the videos show girls younger than 13, posting themselves online where predators can easily access them. One such girl, obviously younger than 13, recently posted a video stating she would sell stuff to people for a dollar, and give out her address- I flagged this video and wrote her a comment about her dangerous behavior. Then afterwards, I tried to find a way to contact YouTube to help protect her from any immediate harm, and found not a single direct contact that would address this concern. Thus, I am here in the forums displaying my thoughts on the matter. As I know it, kids 13 and up can post videos on the site- what enforcements are being undertook to protect children below 13, or 13 and over for that matter. The material they post are sexually suggestive at times. So, I must suggest some feedbacks.
Create a reporting category especially for children uploading videos.
Have a direct email address to address this concerns immediately.
And have more policing to eliminate the problems as they occur.
I am very surprise that there isn't any news about girls on YouTube getting raped, kidnapped, or murdered yet...
Where is the accountability these days, in such a dangerous age of online predators- nothing is done until it has happened numerous times...
Can I flag any post for suspected users under 13, regardless of content that I come across?
In any event, that is my comments, unsure if it will change anything or matters- but I threw it out there
