Youtube content creators may soon be facing an additional challenge earning an income as major corporate advertisers end their contracts with google ads.
This is one of many reasons why its important to support the voices in the independent media and the platforms they are building outside the social media ghettos. This is another reason to join AMTV MEDIA ON DEMAND. Help us grow our message so we can expand what we started.
Do not let them kill the alternative media and the independent platforms that you enjoy and have access to today.
U.S. wireless carriers Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N) and AT&T Inc (T.N) said on Wednesday they have suspended digital advertising on Google’s YouTube and other advertising platforms not related to search over concerns that their ads may have run next to extremist videos.
Verizon and AT&T joined a list of well-known British brands such as retailer Marks and Spencer Group Plc (MKS.L) deserting Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google. Google is under fire in Europe from politicians and brands angered by ads appearing alongside videos on its YouTube platform carrying homophobic or anti-Semitic messages.
Google on Tuesday vowed an overhaul of its practices.
Just in: Johnson & Johnson tell us they will “pause all YouTube digital advertising globally”. More to come #googleads
