“As we fix this issue, you may notice lower total view count numbers across these features,” You Tube said in a post on its support site on Friday.
For example, Pew Die Pie — the gaming vlogger who runs the most-subscribed individual channel on You Tube — currently has 14,652,762,481 total all-time views since April 2010. However, You Tube claims the problem would not have skewed total view numbers very much.
With the update, public subscriber counts on channels changed to reflect the recent purge of inactive or bogus followers, according to You Tube.
And two months ago, You Tube creators began complaining of a dramatic drop in views for individual videos, which may have been related to changes You Tube appears to have made to its suggested-videos algorithm.
Also in early 2010, Smosh created the "i Shut Up App" for Android phones as part of a Google sponsorship; it eventually made its way to the i Tunes app store.In January 2010, Smosh launched the "Smosh Pit" feature, a blog that consists of various pieces of pop-culture trivia, and written comedy.In addition, 2010 saw the channel launch 3 different Smosh-based web series: Ian Is Bored, which started as a collection of comedic videos by Hecox, but then turned into both Hecox and Padilla making vlog like videos, and renamed Smosh Is Bored; Ask Charlie, where people ask Charlie, from their January 2010 Charlie the Drunk Guinea Pig video, random questions; and Lunchtime with Smosh, a comedy series featuring Smosh getting and eating food from various places, and answering Twitter questions from their fans on Twitter.At first, these videos were not intended to be posted online, but after they sent them to their friends, they started a You Tube channel.One of Smosh's earliest videos, "Pokémon Theme Music Video," was released on November 28, 2005.
