YouTube "systematically failing" to protect children, watchdog claims –

The man, who joined the initiative in 2014, told BBC Trending that due to the backlog there is “no  reliable way for a concerned parent, child in danger, or anyone else to reliably report and get action on a predatory channel”.

“It’s been an on-going issue since I joined, with the average report I send directly to staff taking three months to be reviewed,” he told the BBC.

“Over the last year, it has been significantly worse and as a result of this I still have reports outstanding from last year. 

“They [YouTube] have systematically failed to allocate the necessary resources, technology and labour to even do the minimum of reviewing reports of child predators in an adequate timeframe.
