YouTube recommends the creators to use this data to determine the best time to publish their videos and broadcast live streams. It will help them to increase their video reach and through that, they can moderate their channel.
Hold inappropriate comments for review
We all know that YouTube allows viewers to share their opinion as a comment. While go through video comments there are lots of good comments, bad comments, and also spam comments. Proper handling of comments and replies are also a factor to improve the channel. Previously Creator Studio provided an optional setting to hold inappropriate comments for review. Now YouTube turned this option into default and this will help the creators to manage their comments and improve conversation quality.
Holding inappropriate comments for review launched 2 years back. Since then, they have been focusing to expand it to 13 more languages and also to improve its accuracy.
Community Post Scheduling
This is one of the new features of YouTube as per the request of creators. This feature enables the scheduling option on the community post.
“Community posts are polls, GIFs, text, images, and videos to get more reach on YouTube and good engagement with your audience.”
Now creators can draft their community posts and they can schedule publishing date and time. Scheduling the time after analyzing their audience active hours will increase the reach and engagements of their community posts.
YouTube launched this feature by considering heavily requested feedback of YouTube creators.
