New tools that allows creators to better control the comments section
YouTube’s comment section can be rather unpleasant at times, which is why decided to roll out four new moderation tools that would allow them to better control their channel’s own comment section.
Starting from today, YouTube creators will be able to pin specific comments to the top of the comments section, allowing them to highlight great engagement or share information with your audience. Additionally, creators will also be able to give a heart to their favourite comments as a way of acknowledging comments from their viewers.
To let the viewers identify the creator better, YouTube will also be making it easier to identify a creator’s comment. These comments will appear under the ext with a pop of colour around it. For verified creators, a verification checkmark will appear beside the name.
