YouTube changing how it polices video game violence

Posted: Updated:

Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey will move to Africa for up to six months, saying, “Africa will define the future. Analysts see opportunity for the company, but worry about daily operations.” The move could boost Square's presence in Africa.

YouTube is changing how it polices video game violence. The company says it will treat "scripted or simulated" violence in games like violence in movies or TV shows. This change means fewer videos on the site will be age-gated, allowing increased viewership.

Facebook is letting users transfer their photos directly to Google Photos. The new tool is now available in Ireland, and will expand worldwide in 2020. This change is a part of its participation in the open-source data transfer project.
