Study reveals the Youtubers who swear the most on the platform

Published

on

YouTube boasts an astonishing influx of approximately 3.7 million new videos uploaded daily.

While the scale of the platform offers unparalleled content diversity, it also raises concerns about the exposure of young viewers to inappropriate language due to the platform’s relative lack of regulations compared to traditional broadcasting media.

In a recent study conducted by paid media agency Distinctly, researchers delved into the content of 75 of the most prominent YouTube channels, sorted by their subscriber count, to uncover which YouTubers use explicit language the most frequently.

Topping the list as the YouTuber with the highest swearing frequency is VanossGaming, a popular gaming content creator whose real name is Evan Fong.

Fong, boasting nearly 26 million subscribers, surprisingly swears a staggering 76 times for every 1,000 words spoken on his channel. This rate is more than double that of any channel ranked below the top four and translates to approximately one swear word every 13 words. Notably, Evan Fong also dabbles in music production under the pseudonym Rynx.

Swearing frequency

Coming in at a close second place is American streamer IShowSpeed, known off-camera as Darren Watkins Jr. IShowSpeed maintains a swearing frequency of 73 instances per 1,000 words spoken in his YouTube content. Unlike many of his counterparts on the list, the majority of Speed’s content is delivered in a live-stream format, where editing to remove inappropriate language is not an option before reaching his audience.

Securing the third spot on the list is Jake Paul, a YouTuber who transitioned into the world of boxing. Paul, known for his unfiltered demeanor, averages 69 swear words for every 1,000 words spoken in his videos.

Robert Laver, Head of Paid Media at Distinctly, highlighted the implications of explicit content on YouTube, stating, “Content creators that monetize their videos and are part of the YouTube Partner Programme must adhere to a set of ‘advertiser-friendly content guidelines.’ Violations of these guidelines can result in videos being placed in a ‘limited or no ads’ monetization state.”

“Inappropriate language is the first topic listed in the guidelines, and Google categorizes this as ‘content that contains profanity or vulgarity at the start or throughout the majority of the video.’

“Occasional use is acceptable, but creators must consider whether the businesses interested in advertising on their videos find the content appropriate for their brand. There is also the option of manually excluding videos or entire channels from targeting.”

Distinctly’s methodology involved compiling a list of 75 of the largest YouTube channels, categorised by subscriber count.

The agency then gathered a selection of videos from these channels and utilized the computer processing language Python to analyse video transcripts, determining the frequency of swearing in each.

Channels aimed at young children or those featuring content from kids’ TV shows or film and TV show highlights were excluded from the rankings.

Apple has decided to halt its ambitious plans for ‘Project Titan’, according to a reliable insider.

The tech giant, which had been secretly working on the project for several years, reportedly encountered numerous challenges and roadblocks, leading to the cancellation of the initiative.

Titan falls

Initially aiming to rival leading electric vehicle manufacturers, the company faced hurdles such as technological complexities, supply chain issues, and intense competition in the rapidly evolving electric vehicle market.

Despite significant investments in research and development, Apple ultimately chose to redirect its resources towards other promising ventures.

Several employees working on the electric car project will be moved to the firm’s artificial intelligence (AI) division, according to Bloomberg News, which first reported the development.

Gen AI

Apple’s decision to hold back in the AI race has drawn attention, especially given the increasing role AI plays in shaping the future of technology.

With its rivals already at the forefront, Apple seems poised to break its silence and bridge the gap in incorporating this breakthrough technology.

Industry analysts suggest that Apple’s belated entry into the AI arena might be a strategic move, allowing the company to observe and learn from the experiences of its competitors.

The tech giant has a reputation for meticulous planning and delivering refined products, and this delay could signify a well-thought-out strategy to ensure a seamless integration of AI without compromising its standards.

In the world of artificial intelligence, Nvidia has emerged as a titan, its semiconductor designs becoming indispensable for an array of tech companies.

Led by the visionary Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s stunning ascent has propelled it to a valuation of $2 trillion, marking a milestone in the tech universe.

Yet, this meteoric rise has also made Nvidia a prime target, with competitors and even its own customers vying to chip away at its dominance.

Huang, known for his philosophy of living in the present, has steered Nvidia through a transformative journey.

From its humble beginnings over three decades ago to its current stature as an AI powerhouse, Huang’s leadership has been instrumental.

Nvidia’s chips, originally tailored for computer graphics, found a new purpose in training AI systems, becoming indispensable for tech giants like Microsoft and Tesla.

However, Nvidia’s dominance has not gone unchallenged.

Competition rises

Rivals like Intel and Advanced Micro Devices have ramped up their AI chip offerings, while tech behemoths such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are developing their own in-house designs.

The announcement of a deal between Microsoft and Intel to produce custom chips underscores the intensifying competition in the AI chip market.

Despite Nvidia’s formidable position, Huang remains vigilant about securing the company’s future.

He is exploring opportunities in other industries, investing in startups leveraging Nvidia’s technology, and advocating for governments to build their own AI infrastructure. Embracing a startup-like culture, Huang fosters an environment where innovation thrives, constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.

Nvidia’s journey reflects the dynamism of the AI landscape. As the company continues to shape the future of technology, its resilience in the face of mounting competition reaffirms its status as a pioneering force in the world of AI.
