YouTube is sending out a voluntarily survey for users to give them info about their race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation. They say the main reason for this info is to address biases in their search system. They also say they wont use it for ads or share it with 3rd parties.
The survey will be an additional way for YouTube to invite creators & artists who may be interested in participating in YouTube-hosted initiatives, like community programs, campaigns, and events hosted by YouTube, if they’re interested. <-- basically a copy paste from the email.


  • What do you think about YouTube asking for this info?
  • Did you happen to get this?
  • Did you fill it out? Why or why not?

Sounds like this started late March but I just got mine today. I would share a link to the survey but it seems the links are tied to your account.

I am a pee-on in the eyes of YT, so I doubt I will get it. If I did, I would delete it.

I get what they are trying to do, I guess, but I would rather not. Now mind you, as a pee-on, I don't deal with any of that garbage if at all, so I might have a different look on it.
