YouTube Sets Thousand of Videos as Private

Hundreds of YouTubers are complaining that their videos that they are uploading are being set from the public status to private status. Obviously, if you set a video to private, most people won't be able to see the videos and thus the video views that YouTubers really seek out, will be way down.

Liz from YouTube support confirmed the bug in a YouTube Help thread. She said:

We've seen your posts about recently uploaded videos being converted to private (and not appearing as public as intended).

This situation has been reported to our engineering team and they're currently working on a fix for the bug. Rest assured that the team is aware of the issue and that the bug should be resolved soon.

Thank you for your understanding, and for reporting this situation to us!

There are literally dozens of threads on the issue, some of those threads, like this one has about a hundred posts or complaints in them.

As a side note, another YouTube bug is also impacting video views. There is confirmed issues with the AutoShare feature with Facebook. Liz explained:

Just a quick update from YouTube that there is currently a bug with AutoShare and Facebook. Our engineering team here is aware of the issue, and is working on getting AutoShare between YouTube & Facebook back up and running as usual again soon. In the meantime, thank you for your patience, we really appreciate it.
