|Youtube playlist "Youtube-Nigeria" is biased because of a missing filtering keyword.||mknyman||7/1/12 12:23 PM|
The automatically generated playlist "Youtube - Nigeria" gives a bad, biased view of the country.
The keyword used for generating the playlist is "Nigeria". However in around 28% of Nigeria-themed videos, the pet name "Naija" is used instead of "Nigeria". Many of these videos have hundreds of thousands of views.
My suggestion is to include the synonymous "Naija" as an additional filtering keyword for the playlist.
The current keyword favors videos by non-nigerians. This seems to emphasize only one side of the coin, in this case poverty, terrorism, injustice and catastrophies.
Including the keyword "Naija" would be a politically correct move.
