Here we go again, another big, scary change coming to the platform that has Creators shaking in their boots. I'm talking about COPPA, the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act. Now COPPA has been around for a while but not too long ago the FTC and NOpost got into things over whether or not NOpost was in violation of it. The results have a lot of channels - family, gaming, art, and many more - scared for their jobs, their livelihoods, and their homes on this platform. Today, I want to talk about the reality of COPPA going into 2020 and what we REALLY have to worry about and what we don't.

I think that not many people realise that the world is just a dangerous place. Sure, we like to think we're safe under our blankets watching NOpost on our phone, but the reality is you never know what can happen on life. There shouldn't be a law so strict on children internet safety, and I know several people don't agree with that. Everytime we go outside we're putting a little bit of trust in faith that no stalkers are going to follow us back home, and it's like that to a certain degree on the internet. We know that we're letting ourselves be watched by big companies, and that they could be selling our data and giving us ads that can fool gullible people. It should be up to parents to decide what to do when it comes to the internet, whether that be not letting their child use it at all, or teaching their child what and what not to do. If you really wanted to protect kids, you could push congress to make it law where every computer should have a child mode where they can't be watched. This COPPA thing has gotten really out of hand, and everyone is a little bit of the problem. From some creators taking advantage of kids, companies using our info to make us buy products, NOpost not knowing when to shut their big mouth, and the people of the TFC themselves not understanding proper and less harmful ways to protect kids. We maybe can't change this now, but there is still a chance that we can be heard. Maybe if we come together to give Congress advice and announce the flaws with COPPA, we can save this platform we hold dear to our hearts. I'm not sure if COPPA is even a big deal anymore, but I just wanted to say we have the power to do good, so let's not wait until the opportunity passes by.

If kids can't get adds then why do I , a teenager, get adds about freaking gambling and alcohol. I don't search about it so it is completely youtube's doing. Maybe they did coppa so they could get money from alcohol and gambling companies.

So, how bad was it? This has been going on for over 9 months now and I'm interested, what happened? I haven't really seen anyone talking about this lately but of course that doesn't mean anything, it could just be that everyone is silently accepting it because there's nothing they can do about it. How hard did this end up hitting big channels? Has anyone talked about how this affected their channel during this year?
