BBC: YouTube pours money into how-to videos. “YouTube will spend $20million (£15m) developing educational and how-to content on the platform, the company has announced. Some video-makers have been frustrated by changes to the platform that made it harder for them to earn money producing short and well-researched videos. Critics say YouTube’s algorithms favour long and sensationalist videos.” I wish they’d just pay their creators better. Lot of channels I like are slowing down or just dropping out.
