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 Community tab of the creator's channel, and you may see them on the Home feed and Subs feed. Community is still in beta and we are testing with different audiences.

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.

  1. Sign in to www.youtube.com on your computer.
  2. Go to your comment history.

Note: Community posts are available only on iPhones, not iPads.
