Return YouTube dislike can be useful if someone wants to analyze video dislike counts for content creation or know about a particular video’s like and dislike ratio.
In 2021 YouTube announced that it would make YouTube’s “dislike” count private on its platform. YouTube claims that the new change will protect creators from harassment and reduce the risk of “dislike attacks” when groups work together to increase the dislikes of a video.
Although dislike counts will not be visible to the viewers, YouTube did not remove the dislike button. YouTube viewers can still click on the thumbs-down button to give their feedback to creators. Creators can track their dislikes and other analytics in YouTube Studio.
