YouTube Comments Section Gets A Little Upgrade
YouTube content creators will be getting three new features to help moderation the comments section. Pinned comments will allow you to promote a specific comment by pinning it to the top of your feed. Creator hearts allows you to give a “heart” to your favorite comments, making it easy to acknowledge comments from your community.
