You have probably noted that something strange is happening with SouthFront’s YouTube channel.
Analytical and military videos, that just a few weeks ago were collecting 50, 100 thousands of views and even more, are now barely reaching 20,000 views. This happens despite the stable high number of likes and comments under the videos that SouthFront publishes on YouTube. At the same time, some subscribers say that they do not see SouthFront videos in their feeds even despite being subscribed for notifications about new videos manually.
SouthFront has appeared among those media organizations, investigators and activists that suffered the so-called shadow ban – the platform’s decision to employ scripts manually limiting their community reach.
The inability of YouTube channels, which challenge the mainstream narrative, to monetize their content is not even a secret.
The ongoing shadow ban is the most recent in a series of attempts to censor and discredit SouthFront. Through the years, these attacks became more and more sophisticated.
We passed through all these difficulties due to your support and we are not going to give up.
- If you have not enabled notifications from SouthFront’s YouTube channel, please, do it right now. This would help to avoid at least a part of the shadow ban effects.
- Tell your friends about SouthFront and drop a link to our website.
- Don’t forget to visit southfront.org. You will find all fresh videos and a lot of additional content, including maps, graphics, text analyses and daily coverage of the developments in war zones, there.
By the end of July, we are going to release several fresh analytical videos, including the ones about the Qods Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and a summary of the military campaign in Syria in 2018-2019.
The intensity of developments in Syria has decreased. Therefore, there will a bit more various analytical content about the developments in the Middle East and around the world and a bit less ordinary war reports that we all do like to watch.
Meanwhile, less than a half month left until the end of the month. If you like SouthFront videos, graphics and text analyses, please, support our work.
