Improving Creator Experience: Updates on Monetization, Community Post, and Dislike Count | Creator Roundup

Published: June 18, 2021

Welcome to the Monthly Creator Roundup!

Hello, creative friends! It’s that time again for our monthly Roundup, where we quickly zip through the hottest updates from the past month. If you’re keen for more details after this quick review, be sure to peep the links provided in the description below. Ready? Let’s jump right in.

Monetization Updates Bring Smiles

We’ve all been there, feeling the sting of seeing a yellow icon on a video into which we’ve poured our hearts. We hear you loud and clear, creators. That’s precisely why we’ve tweaked our ad-friendly guidelines based on your input. What does this mean? More of those much-loved green icons for videos which would have previously been branded with a yellow one.

Now, content containing mild swear words, cheeky adult humor, and respectful chats about divisive topics should be more likely to get the green light. We’re stoked about this upgrade and optimistic that it will elevate your creator journey with us.

Your YouTube, Your Identity

We’ve received countless requests over the years from creators wanting to distinguish their YouTube persona from their Google account. Well, wish granted! Discover how you can differentiate your YouTube channel name and profile photo from your Google account by checking out our instructional video in the description. We’re eager to hear your thoughts on this new level of personalization!

Revisiting the Visibility of Dislikes

The notion of dislikes being publicly visible sometimes adds undue pressure, and we’re sensitive to that. That’s why we’re trying out something new: an experiment where dislikes are kept under wraps for viewers. This initiative seeks to fortify the well-being of creators while still capturing valuable viewer insights. Don’t worry, though—those involved in the test can still track the numbers in YouTube Studio.

Community Tab Gets a Power-Up

As an integral platform for engaging with your fans, the Community tab just leveled up with three nifty enhancements:
Firstly, you can now track impressions and the engagement rate for your community posts right within YouTube Analytics.
Secondly, the unpopular one-image-per-post rule is gone. Revel in the ability to upload up to five images at once!
Lastly, we’ve streamlined the post scheduling process. It’s now a cinch on desktops, Android, and yes—iOS devices too, directly from the YouTube app.
Our aim? To fortify your connection with your audience by giving you more firepower in your engagement arsenal.
