Responding to creator feedback on “well-being and targeted dislike campaigns”, YouTube says it is testing few new designs for the platform where the public dislike count would not show. The ‘new designs’ are still an experiment and will be visible to some creators and viewers over the coming weeks. Creators will still be able to see the total likes and dislike on a video in YouTube Studio. For viewers, the ones who are part of the experiment, there will be a dislike button, but it won’t show the dislike counter.
YouTube announced experimenting with the design on its official Twitter account.
