We’ve been listening to your feedback and we’re excited to roll out new comment features, including:
Pinned comments: promote a specific comment by pinning it to the top of your feed. This lets you highlight great engagement from your fans or share information with your audience.
Creator hearts: show some love by giving a heart to your favorite comments. This is a new and easy way to acknowledge comments from your community.
Creator usernames: when you comment on your channel, your username will appear under the text with a pop of color around it so your viewers can easily tell that the comment is coming from you. If you are a verified creator, you will still have a verification checkmark appear beside your name.
As a small time Youtuber, I have not gotten those terrible Youtube comments. So happy Youtube is taking steps to fix the comments section.
