YouTube last year, 92 million videos will be removed that do not meet the rules of the video platform. Only a small part was removed because there was terreurpropaganda or hate.

The videos are detected with a spam-herkenningstechniek or by a message from a YouTube user, writing the video site Thursday in a blog post.

The reasons for a video to remove ranged from spam to geweldsuitingen. Only 1 percent of all cases, there was talk of terrorism or hate.

YouTube works as a team 24 hours per day to reports from users to investigate. It is the team that ultimately determines whether a video is removed.

Since 2006, more than 90 million people videos shown on YouTube. More than a third of those people will have multiple videos reported.
