YouTube will hire 10,000 people to monitor and control violent extremism on the popular video streaming platform, along with curbing content that endangers children.

In an interview to The Daily Telegraph, Susan Wojcicki, Chief Executive of the Google-owned video-sharing site, said yesterday in London that bad actors are exploiting YouTube to mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm.

YouTube along with Facebook, Google and Twitter have come under scrutiny over the availability of terrorist material and propaganda on their platforms.

YouTube has terminated 50 channels and removed thousands of videos as also advertisements from 5,00,000 exploitative videos under the current set of guidelines.
