I have never been recommended a Kimmel clip.

I only get the best recommendations.

I do remember YouTube had sometimes been caught red handed changing the likes and dislikes to certain videos. Depending on how bad or good the video is sometimes the like and dislike system works like it ought to despite YouTube trying to tamper with it and sometimes it don't. So it's like 50/50, I guess...


Liking makes related videos more likely to appear on your suggestions tab but I don't think disliking actually does anything


what chdonga said.


"not interested" and "don't recommend this channel" are your best friends. i rely on the latter a lot.

Seriously, my recommendations are cat videos and videogames. I dunno who this Jimmy Kibble is everyone keeps complaining about.


I think I've only liked videos I knew I wouldn't find later, and have actively tried not to like or dislike any video.

Yes, it makes the liking/disliking person look like an ass.

A lot of those cute cat videos that have a weird number of dislikes are actually from bots.


Every platform is crawling with bots in the background. For youtube, idk what their purpose is. But they use a coin-flip yes/no for liking or disliking a video.


liking at least changes how the algorithm recommends things to people at least. I find that if I like a music video, I'm more likely to fin it in the "my mix" playlist. I think disliking does nothing.
