AEW opened their doors and promised that they will listen to fans. For some reason, they have disabled a popular way that fans have to let the company know how they feel.
Sometime since December 16th, AEW disabled the “like” and “dislike” function for new YouTube videos. Older videos still have likes and dislikes enabled.
Fans can still click “like” and “dislike” under the AEW YouTube videos, but they will not register. You also cannot see how many likes and dislikes a video has.
Comments are still enabled, but comments help Google’s algorithm push up videos with more engagement. The more comments a video has, the more popular YouTube thinks it is, no matter the context.
It is very interesting that AEW disabled likes and dislikes on their videos. We have reached out or comment, but have not heard a response on Christmas Eve. Keep checking back for an update.
