Google gives China another big tweak, deleting more than 200 Chinese YouTube channels
Earlier, India banned 59 Chinese apps. This was followed by a ban on 47 apps again. Now Google has also taken a special step towards China. It’s a decision that will be a major setback for China. Google has deleted more than 2500 YouTube channels in China.
It is worth mentioning that misleading information was being spread through these Chinese YouTube channels. The video sharing platform has removed these Chinese YouTube channels after receiving its information. Google said the YouTube channels were removed between April and June. Thay says the move is based on an ongoing investigation into an influence operation linked to China.
Google has stated in its quarterly bulletin of misleading information operations that spammy, non-political content was posted on these channels, especially on YouTube. But it also had to do with politics. Although Google has not disclosed the name of the channel, it has provided some suggestions. The company said that now a link to the video with such activity is also being seen on Twitter.
