Youtube making changes to protect users from harassment

Posted: Updated:

Youtube may be making changes to better protect children and others from harassment.

Beginning in January, Youtube's CEO said the video sharing platform will disable comments on videos that are identified as kid-focused.  It's also looking at stopping targeted advertising to children.

In a quarterly blog post, the company indicated it's working closely with video creators to determine the best ways to improve the platform's guidelines.

Right now Youtube works to prohibit behaviors including incitement and the revealing of a person's personal information. 

The announcement comes weeks after Youtube reached a $170 million settlement with the federal trade commission over violations of children's privacy.
