To pre-roll or not?
But at the same time I understand that it's a way for video makers to monetise their content.
What I didn't know is YouTube are very selective about where a pre-roll can run.
As the above notification for the Vlog Bros shows.
In light of the recent furore over Facebook removing a famous Vietnam war photo for violating it's terms and conditions I did and bit of research.
And what I found is it's not actual human people looking at Facebook pics or YouTube vids.
It's an algorithm. And algorithms can do amazing things.
But they ain't quite a clever as humans just yet.
