CPO Neil Mohan was speaking at a conference on Technology, Innovation and Society.
He said that both the creators and users are safe on this platform.
New Delhi. India’s economy of creators is booming. Local creators on YouTube are contributing an estimated Rs 6,800 crore to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) annually and creating 7 lakh jobs in the process. This is the claim of Neil Mohan, who is the Chief Product Officer of YouTube and SVP of Google.
Virtually participating in CyFy 2022, a conference on technology, innovation and society, he said that the creators’ economy in India is doing really well. The event was organized by the Observer Research Foundation (ORF).
He added that YouTube not only allows creators to build their audience, but will also create economic opportunities for them to build businesses. YouTube is a place where all kinds of businesses are thriving – especially small businesses – as the platform is an advertising-driven media platform.
no gender discrimination
Neil Mohan said that there is equal opportunity for people of all Indian languages on the platform and there is no gender discrimination of any kind. “We have tools that help provide a good environment for both (content creators and users), he added. Mohan said that YouTube is a place where content creators are given the first status across India.
That’s why the eyes of the government are necessary!
YouTube’s Chief Product Officer said, “It is our priority to make it inclusive and diverse. The creators economy affects crores of people in India and hence it is natural for governments to care about what happens on these platforms.”
He said the onus is on key stakeholders, governments and YouTube to ensure that the platform is not used to spread misinformation. Mohan said, “YouTube is a place where people come to share opinions and perspectives in terms of policy outcomes. Here our approach towards electoral integrity, preventing misinformation and violence is clear.”
