Engage with creators on Community posts

Community posts allow you and other users to engage even more with your favorite creators. You can now respond to creator polls, pictures, GIFs, and more on YouTube.

After a creator posts, you can respond by commenting, liking, and voting on polls. Community posts are available on the Home feed, Subs feed, and Community tab found on the creator's channel. This feature is currently available only on select channels.

Note: As creators get the Community tab, it will replace the Discussion tab. You can access or delete any comments you left on the Discussion tab for 30 days after creators receive the Community tab. Follow the instructions below.
