YouTube comes to creators’ help with new filters for the comments.
If you are a creator yourself or work for a brand, you know how hard it is to keep up with all the comments and messages you receive on your YouTube account. So now you have new filters to select and answer to comments that users leave on your profile and to create a more meaningful conversation with those that follow or just interact with you.
During the last few years, YouTube has done lots of changes to help creators maintain a good relationship with their followers and have listened to their requests and introduced a series of new filters to select comments and answer them. Some of those filters are:
- Member status: is the commenter a member?
- Subscriber count: how many subscribers does the member have: 1K/10K/100K/1M/10M?
- Subscriber status: is your commenter subscriber to your channel?
- Response status: filter comments that you have answered already versus the ones that still need to be answered.
- Contains question: does the comment you received contain a question or not?
How to filter comments?
In order to start filtering comments you have to follow the next steps:
- Go to your YouTube Creator Studio on desktop.
- Select the Comments tab from the left menu.
- Use the filter bar on the top of the page.
The most important thing to remember is that you are not limited to the use of one single filter per search. You can use more than one or more combinations, such as when you want to see comments from subscribers that have over 10k subscribers themselves and which contain a question.
YouTube has also improved their SEO when it comes to words searching. For example, if you look for the word subscriber, you will also get answers from the word subscribers. This was also a request that came from creators.
If you have any other requests on what filters on comments are regarded, don’t hesitate to write to them and give feedback on your wishes.
