It's payback time: Muslim world's YouTube boycott leaves Google feeling the pinch
2.5 5

I think is real bad for google, because, it can be replaced by another search engines, because they are not alone in the market, to changes the position of a brand in people's mind, it is not impossible, and in this case, it can cause serious problems to google, and not just in the arab countries people are boycotting, but even in Brazil, Youtube was prohibited to show this video. To lost popularity is easy, brand positioning can change in this situation. Google can be seen now as (against muslims), or more than this, youtube can be seen as a company that dont follow their own rules....

Youtube Rule:
-We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).
-Things like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts or to violate the Terms of Use are taken very seriously. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from YouTube.

That is why, people may dont trust these companies as before.

Whether it left an impact or it didn't, we're just glad we could show them how easy it is to do the boycotting more often. They just think that no internet user can live without their social media.. we proved them wrong and they now know that in the future we are able to do more damage. It wasn't only Muslims that boycotted, some Americans did too since they just want us to calm down.
