YouTube ‘Suggested Videos’ Now Lean Towards Longest-Watched

YouTube altered its suggested videos algorithm to suggest those videos that are watched for the longest periods of time. Which makes sense. After all, if a video is good, that's what should be suggested right?
Previously in its suggested videos section, were served up based on the number of people who clicked on those videos. Now the video company will be prioritizing the longest viewing times instead.
In a post, YouTube said the change was instated to serve up better and more relevant content to audiences. But it also seems to penalize those who create shorter videos.
For example a 30 second video averaging 25 seconds of viewing time is less likely to be recommended compared to a four minute video that averages 28 seconds of viewing time.
