With over 6 billion hours of video watched each month, YouTube is an incredibly powerful platform for video consumption and sharing. It’s even beating Facebook as a social media site among teenagers. Now it seems like Google will be looking to reach a much younger demographic.
YouTube is reportedly developing a new kid-friendly website that will feature programming for children under the age of 10. While YouTube currently has safety features that block inappropriate content, the filters aren’t 100% accurate. A new stand-alone site would guarantee a safe browsing experience for the young ones.
To learn more about this developing story, check out the video above. Host Lamarr Wilson discusses this topic and more on his new Mashable showYouTube Weekly.
