YouTube's New CEO

Just several days ago, Susan Wojcicki posted a blog post stating that she has stepped down from her position as CEO of YouTube.


“Today, after nearly 25 years here, I’ve decided to step back from my role as the head of YouTube and start a new chapter focused on my family, health, and personal projects I'm passionate about.”


Wojcicki has been with YouTube for the past nine years as its CEO and before that worked for Google under the founder's Larry Page and Sergey Brin according to CNBC News. Her legacy on YouTube has been filled with many criticisms as BBC stated, “she has faced public criticism over the platform's handling of content moderation, the spread of misinformation, and ongoing concerns over child privacy.


With her stepping down, a new CEO for YouTube has been put into place. This new leader is Neal Mohan, former YouTube chief product officer. 


Mohan has been a part of Google since 2007 and later joined YouTube in 2015 to help lead new ideas for the company to implement according to The Hindu Business line


Fast Company pointed out that some of the features he helped add were YouTube TV, YouTube Music, YouTube Premium, and YouTube Shorts. In a different article, Mohan spoke to Fast Company in an interview saying, “The best analogy that comes to mind for me is just thinking about YouTube as a stage. Viewers need the best views possible of the creators that they’re most excited about.


The reactions to this new head of one of the biggest social media platforms have been mixed.


Some people like Mabstar tweeted excitement over this new change of leadership saying, “Congratulations to the new CEO of YouTube! Excited to see what the future holds under your leadership.”


Others like Val expressed skepticism and negative thoughts over this new CEO due to past features he has helped implement and removed. “He wants youtube NFTs, supported the removal of the dislike button,  and advocated for the no swearing rules so... yeah, doesn't sound too great.”


While only time will tell what new decisions and features Neal Mohan will implement, YouTube is entering a new stage with a different leader coming to change no matter how small it may be.
