In early January, YouTube will make changes to data collected from children’s content, The Wall Street Journal reports. YouTube will limit data collected on videos targeted to children, not show data-driven personalized ads on children’s videos, and not allow comments on the videos. Creators will designate if their target audience is children. Federal regulators and privacy advocates support the changes, while they are being protested by content creators who could face U.S. Federal Trade Commission fines for improper designation and have been told to expect less revenue without targeted ads based on personal data.
