YouTube is no stranger to backlash, but in recent months the video-streaming giant seems to be increasingly under fire. The Federal Trade Commission has launched an investigation into the San Bruno-based company for allegedly violating children's privacy laws. In response, The Wall Street Journal reports that YouTube is considering moving all kid's content to the YouTube Kids app. The existing app would include a new feature that disables the auto-play feature, with the hopes of shielding minors from disturbing content. We'll get the latest on YouTube's woes and possible changes to the site.
