Have you ever imagined having your own community environment on YouTube to strengthen the bond with your followers?

Good news! YouTube Community is now a reality! The innovative video hosting platform is constantly looking for new ways to improve their user's experience and this is a clear example of that. Read this blog post and find out what this new community will bring and how you will be able to take advantage of it.

A “Community” Tab On YouTube?

Yes, sir. Just like you've just read. The YouTube Community refers to nothing less than the possibility of having a “Community” tab on your YouTube's channel. This is a very recent announcement made by the leading video hosting platform, which has launched the service into public beta with a group of early creators, who gave them a hand in developing -in partnership with YouTube itself- some specific tools to better engage with followers.

 

These early adopters brought different backgrounds and content styles. Some of them are: John & Hank Green, AsapSCIENCE, The Game Theorists, Karmin, The Key of Awesome, The Kloons, Lilly Singh, Peter Hollens, Rosianna Halse Rojas, Sam Tsui, Threadbanger, and VSauce3.

What Can You Do With YouTube Community?

With the launch of YouTube Community, creators will be able to share things like text posts, images, GIFs and other types of content. The followers, on their side, will have the possibility to do thumbs up or down on each post, and to make comments.

Moreover, the subscribers will be able to see all of this information in the “Subscriptions” feed in the YouTube mobile app. They will also be able to set up and receive push notifications on these posts from their favorite creators.

Uses & Benefits

The different uses of YouTube Community will probably be uncovered on-the-go. The thing is that, from the start, you will be able to use it -for instance- to post updates about your channel’s upcoming events, and also to share cool photos and videos that you want to spread amongst your fans.

 

YouTube Community stands out as a great feature to talk to your subscribers directly, with the possibility to strengthen the engagement and bond with them. And the interesting thing about this is that YouTube is where people are more likely to engage with brands. From YouTube's perspective, this feature is within the essence of YouTube, which is that strong connection between their creators and fans.

What's Next?

 

Just like YouTube has started working with these early adopters, they say that they plan to add additional creators to the feature in the future. YouTube considers this as a first step and they want to gather their creators' and fans' feedback in order to roll out new features and functions as well as adding more creators in the next upcoming months.

Quite a promising feature, isn't it? In the meantime, why not take some time to optimize your YouTube videos in order to maximize their visibility? Start now!
