YouTube is going to ask users if they are sure they want to comment when it says potentially hurtful things.
With the new notification, YouTube hopes to reduce offensive language on its platform.
YouTube users may be notified in the near future when they post a comment under a video.
When the YouTube algorithm believes it recognizes offensive language in a response, a notification is displayed to the user.
This notice urges the user not to use offensive language and references the Community Guidelines.
The user can then adjust his reaction with one push of a button or choose to post the reaction.
YouTube does not block the comments.
The algorithm can also mistakenly think that there is hurtful language in a response.
If this is the case, users can also report this.
If it later turns out that the reaction does violate YouTube's rules, the reaction can still be taken offline.
