Persuasive Design – YT Kids

Persuasive design is a big subject, but essentially it is the design tactics used by companies to get you into apps and keep you in there. A good example of this would be the default ‘autoplay’ in YouTube, Netflix etc. Concerningly, the YouTube Kids app which is for children under 7 also has autoplay turned on and this is concerning for a number of reasons, including the fact that some pretty awful videos have made their way onto the kids app.
