YouTube Community Expands To More Creators, Adds 'Stories'

Users will also be allowed to add custom music and text and can engage with the Reels by giving them a thumbs up or a thumbs down similar to You Tube videos and comment on them

YouTube has announced this today.

The new feature is part of YouTube's bid to allow creators to connect with their fans on a more intimate level with YouTube Community, where creators can post updates and other snippets between uploads.

YouTube has announced that they're working on their own version of Snapchat or Instagram Stories, and is calling it Reels. The YouTube Community expansion comes a few days after YouTube Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan confirmed that the feature was set to hit more YouTube content creators soon. Community is created to make YouTube more social, and reduce the need for creators to turn to other social networks to communicate with fans. We're also bringing creator-focused features like linking to YouTube videos and YouTube-y stickers. YouTube would also allow the users to have more than one Reels-each including its own set of videos. On Snapchat, Instagram and other social platforms, Stories posted have an expiry time of 24 hours.

Donating on Giving Tuesday is as easy buying on Cyber Monday
Many national groups are involved in Giving Tuesday , including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America , Planned Parenthood and more. After Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes #GivingTuesday , a day created to help kick off the charitable season.

Rather than sit next to full-length or main channel videos, they will be listed in a different tab on the creator's page.

TechCrunch has outlined the process of making Reels which is-making mobile videos of up to thirty seconds per video, these videos can incorporate the use of filters, music or text. YouTube is also integrating features already available on Community for Reels. Reels is now in beta mode and the final product is expected to launch soon, but after proper experimentation. People want to share content without having to curate, edit and publish a traditional YouTube video.

YouTube has also made some changes to the Community tab. Your most engaged viewers can now see Community posts in the Home feed, whether they're subscribed to your channel or not. However, this doesn't assure that notifications for every Community post will be received. Fan can also now get notification of new posts.
