Google, YouTube, Control, conspiracy stuff Show more
Google are changing their algorithm to no longer promote conspiracy theories on youtube. (although they have said this won't affect far-right videos).
It occurred to me earlier that this could have been a test similar to Facebook's social contagion where YT wanted to see if people could be made to believe obviously fake stuff just because Google wanted them to.
Really though it doesn't matter if it was a test or not. The answer was yes anyway.
