YouTube CEO Admits that Annual Overview did not Meet Expectations
YouTube director Susan Wojcicki writes that the annual review of YouTube at the end of last year should have been a lot better. The video was rated by viewers as the worst YouTube video ever.
Wojcicki writes in a blog post that her children also found the video “embarrassing”. The director did not envisage the record of “worst-rated video on the internet” when the video was released.
“We agree with you that the video did not show the most important moments of the year,” she writes. “Nor was it a good reflection of the YouTube you know, and we will tell a better story in 2019.”
The 2018 Rewind video from Youtube was released in December. Meanwhile, fifteen million viewers have pushed their thumbs down under the film, which has been viewed 164 million times. Both viewers and creators criticised the video because it did not give a proper representation of the YouTube culture.
