YouTube may be one of the most popular websites in the world today, but the comments on the site may sometimes be the most juvenile you will ever come across. Google apparently wants to wipe that criticism away.
According to reports, YouTube will now offer a “highlights view” that will showcase the top rated comments plus those by the uploader on top of the comments section. This is for viewers to selectively read the more value-adding comments instead of having to scan through dozens of trollish comments across all the videos.
Will this also be an incentive for viewers to make more thought-provoking comments? We hope so.[via ReadWriteWeb]
