The chart shows the percentage of videos removed by YouTube, by first source of detection (automated flagging or human detection). Flags from human detection can come from a user or a member of YouTube’s Trusted Flagger program. Trusted Flagger program members include individuals, NGOs, and government agencies that are particularly effective at notifying YouTube of content that violates their Community Guidelines. The chart shows that automated flagging is by far the first source of detection compared to human detection. As for the human detection, the biggest number of removed videos were first noticed by users, followed by individual trusted flaggers, NGOs and government agencies.
