Johannesburg - The world’s biggest streaming website YouTube has tightened rules around video creators, including external links in their videos.
The new rule means that video creators who upload their content to the website will only be able to monetise it once a channel reaches 10 000 public channel views.
The program lets creators earn money from advertisements served on their videos and from YouTube Red subscribers watching their content, according to its website.
In August YouTube's partner company Google announced that it would add warnings and disable advertising on videos that contain hate speech or promote terrorism.
Videos were not removed but new restrictions on viewing, sharing and making money on content were put in place.
