    No, You Shouldn't Get Plastic Surgery Advice from YouTube

    An old adage with a modern spin says that you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet. Now, new research adds that you shouldn't believe everything you watch online, either. And that especially goes for plastic surgery videos on YouTube. That's because these videos can be misleading forms of marketing — and what's more — can offer bad advice for people seeking legitimate information about such procedures, according to the new study, published today (Aug. 16) in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery. [7 Beauty Trends That Are Bad for Your Health] In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey examined the digital-age trend of people turning to YouTube

    Instagram and YouTube stars are being investigated for not declaring when they're paid to promote brands

    The UK's Competition and Markets Authority is investigating celebrities and social media stars for not labeling paid promotions on platforms like Instagram and YouTube. The competition authority has written to a number of stars it suspects of wrongdoing and could name and shame them before the end of the year. It is not, at this stage, talking to the social media platforms about whether they are doing enough to stamp out the practice.

    Confirmed: BBC Scotland WASN'T consulted over Wings YouTube ban

    In a letter to the former first minister, BBC company secretary Phil Harrold said the take-down action was taken “centrally” and that it was “not possible” to investigate at “divisional level.” He wrote: “The BBC's brand enforcement team deals with copyright infringement reports including on YouTube...their procedure for dealing with copyright infringement complaints (which is now being reviewed) is based on a purely legal/rights assessment. “Having established that the relevant channels were infringing BBC rights, reports were filed through the YouTube procedure. This process is carried out centrally, as the BBC receives and processes a number of brand enforcement complaints from across the

    These DIY lasers scare the crap out of YouTube

    A chemist YouTuber known for his rather heated content has apparently had several of his videos flagged for being a bit too close to dangerous, which comes as a bit of a surprise considering what else the site allows to exist. We've seen YouTube waffle on some pretty questionable content, from kids vomiting to feeding your loved one laxatives. Short of murder, it was hard to see where exactly YouTube would draw the line against you — I mean, as long as your name isn't Alex Jones. But apparently Drake “Styropyro” Anthony, who routinely creates things like DIY lasers, bumped up against that boundary with a few of his videos.

    YouTube's 'Viper Club' Starring Susan Sarandon to Get Theatrical Release by Roadside Attractions

    YouTube inked a pact with Roadside Attractions to release “Viper Club,” Maryam Keshavarz's drama starring Susan Sarandon, in U.S. theaters this fall — as Google sets its sights on a potential Oscar or Golden Globes win. The film will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (which runs Sept. 6-18) and will be released in theaters on Oct. 26, 2018. “Viper Club” will become available on YouTube Premium, the $9.99 subscription service, in 2019. It's the first YouTube original film to get a theatrical release. Roadside hasn't set specific rollout plans for “Viper Club” (only in the U.S.) but the film will be positioned to take advantage of the awards-season corridor. The film was previously

    Bobby Burns is YouTube's most interesting creator right now

    Staying relevant on YouTube without milkshake ducking yourself is a fine line creators walk every single day. Entertaining people and pushing boundaries is part of the job, but go one step too far, and fans can turn. It's happened before. Controversial YouTuber Leafy, 5 Second Films and Microwave This are series, channels or creators that became irrelevant as content became stale or died off after their videos became too obscene. That's what makes Bobby Burns' real-time “transformation” so intriguing to watch play out. Burns' channel started off as one thing (album and movie reviews), morphed into something else (YouTube commentary) and became something completely different (vlogging) for a short
