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.

Maybe somebody will make a new app better than NOpost. Or this app will be fixed.

Mat predicted 2020 spot on . So many content creators quit NOpost last year just because of some kids policy Hopefully we don't lose as many content creators as we did last year in 2020. I mean there's a reason why there's NOpost kids so that we who r older than 13 can watch content we were used to watching .

I saw this in my recommendeds and was like, "Oh yeah, COPPA, that was a thing we were worried about for 2020 once. Funny how we all collectively forgot about that, what with the pandemic and the murder bees and the fire tornados and the riots and stuff…" XD

It's 2021 right now and I can answer this question: Yes, my favorite channel did survive 2020. Along with everyone else. God remember when this was literally all we were worried about? Gives me PTSD.
