    I don't have a youtube account, so i do 't have any kind of personalizated video suggestions but right now I just opened Youtube and in front of me i seen a yoga girl with leggins and a provocative pose (open legs litteraly) and i was super triggered by that shit. This morning happen something similar, as i opened youtube the first video was an athletic woman doing some kind of run competition and his ass in front of me. I think youtube want to trigger us, i don't find any other explanation.

    I set youtube so it goes to my subscriptions page rather than the home page for this very reason.

  3. If you're on Chrome use the Unhook extension. Life saver.

    I do have an account so my recommendations are personalized, and often I find myself annoyed by how primitive the algorithm is. I watch a few videos about a topic, then suddenly YouTube thinks that is all I want to watch. Then I watch something else, and the videos overwhelming my feed vanish without a trace.

    YouTube also has no understanding of "anti" content. Lol like I watch a lot of anti-MLM videos, and YouTube is like "oh, you seem to like content about MLMs. Here's 5 millions ads about all the MLMs you might want to join."

    That's why I watch some video in private mode or incognito in the app just to not mess up my recommendation

    I watch a lot of videos of people like DSP and WingsofRedemption, YouTubers who always have drama following them and are hilarious to watch because they suck at videogames. I watch that content on an entirely different account because if I watched it on my main one, I would get nothing but those videos. It would completely push out anything else.

    I can't use incognito mode because I turned it off. On Chrome at least, I don't know how to do it for other browsers.

    Seconded, I've read that acronym twice, but have no clue what it is. From what I briefly read online, it's some kind of business strategy, unless it stands for something else.

  11. I deactivated my YT history years ago and it's one of the best decision I've ever made tbh. If I really, really want to watch YouTube, then I start by a video from one of the less than 20 people I subscribe (I curate them extremely carefully) and watch recommended videos from it. Or I search.

    It stands for multi-level marketing. Businesses that operate under a structure that is focused/dependent on recruiting people to your down line, not selling actual products. Aka, pyramid schemes.
