Consider YouTube as an information source, discuss its reliability, usefulness, and responsibility regarding misinformation.
YouTube can be utilized as a reliable source of information, but students and other users should be well versed in information literacy so that they are able to identify reputable channels and videos, and those that are unreliable. Educational institutions and libraries can also take advantage of fo the platform by curating channels for specific courses or subjects and promoting them to students through classes and the library. As far as corporate responsibility goes, the platform should be held responsible for dangerous misinformation such as removing anti-vaccination videos, but users cannot reasonably expect the platform to remove every piece of incorrect or offensive video due to the massive volume of videos uploaded daily. For that reason, all users should approach with healthy skepticism, and information professionals should be addressing the use of this, and other, similar platforms, in information literacy courses.
