YouTube Launched Its Own Social Nework Named "YouTube Community Tab" For Sharing Pictures, Text And More

The new YouTube community beta will allow users to see content in their subscriptions feeds and can also get push notifications when there is fresh content. YouTube in a critical move to fight off Facebook rival who has grown video exponentially over the last few year, wants to have more social features.


YouTube has been testing the new service over the past several months with a handful of creators in order to gain feedback. It's launching the service into public beta with this group of early testers, and will make it available to a wider group of creators in the "month's ahead," it says. Access to this expanded feature set is made available to the creators and their viewers by way of a new "Community" tab on their channels. From here, creators can share things like text posts, images, GIFs and other content, which the audience can thumbs up and down, like the videos themselves, as well as comment on. Viewers will see these posts in their "Subscriptions" feed in the YouTube mobile application, and can also choose to receive push notifications on these posts from their favorite creators, YouTube says.
Though the new YouTube community tab will be available in beta with the Vlogbrothers, The Kloons, AsapScience and just a few other select channels, for now. This will help YouTube creators to keep in touch with their fans right on the site without relying on other social network.
