I’m likely the last sort of person who you want to be hearing this from, however I think with the incident with YouTube, it was largely people posting comments on videos which could be considered creepy and focusing on specific timestamps in the videos where children were caught in compromising positions.
YouTube took the step of disabling comments on all children’s videos as a result, with the exception of a handful of channels they believed to be more reasonably moderated.
It would be extremely difficult for YouTube to ensure consent given the nature of it’s platform and often only the uploader knows if they have such.
If they have sufficient reason (this is slightly fuzzy) to believe that consent was not granted or if they’re explicitly informed that it was not given by the subject, then they should take the content down.
It would be unfortunate if all videos of children trying to express themselves were censored due to a few bad apples posting comments. When I was a child, I myself was drawn to the idea of fame on a large platform such as this.
I was very cautious at the time despite only being ten and avoided posting any too identifying information or doing anything that could put me in real danger. Perhaps, education can assist in this area to some extent?
This is just my personal opinion on the matter and there may be things I’m not aware of.
