Learn about Community posts

Creators with access to the Community posts can interact with viewers using rich media. Community posts can include polls, GIFs, text, images, and video. Community posts can allow you to connect with your audience outside of video uploads. They show on the Community tab, and may show on Home or the Subscriptions feed.

YouTube Community Tab

Am I eligible for the Community tab?

For the Community Tab to be available, you need to have 500 subscribers or enable access to advanced features on your channel. You can choose among three options to gain access: channel history, video verification, or a valid ID. Learn more here. It could take up to one week to see the community tab after reaching 500 subscribers, or up to 48 hours after gaining access to Advanced features.

If your channel’s audience is set as "Made for Kids," your Community tab will only be visible to you and not your viewers. You also can't create new posts, but will be able to view past posts. Learn more about setting your audience.

Note: This feature may not be available with supervised experiences on YouTube. Learn more here.

Where can I find my Community posts?

You can find your Community posts on your channel’s Community tab and under the Content section of YouTube Studio. To get to your posts in YouTube Studio:

  1. Sign in to YouTube Studio.
  2. From the left menu, select Content.
  3. Click the Posts tab.

If you have scheduled Community posts for a future publish date, they will be in YouTube Studio and in the “Scheduled” section of the Community tab. This section is only visible to you.

Note: Community posts that violate our Community Guidelines are not allowed on YouTube. If your post is found to violate our policies, it will be removed from all surfaces; including the Community tab.

Are my viewers notified when I post?

If viewers have selected to get notifications for channels they're subscribed to, they’ll occasionally get Community post notifications.

Viewers can opt out of post notifications by selecting "None" in the bell settings.

We may occasionally send post notifications to viewers who are not subscribed but who often watch videos from your channel. Learn more about viewer notification settings.

Why are comments turned off on my Community post?

Make sure that your channel’s default comment settings aren’t set to “Disable comments” by following these instructions. Since Community posts don’t have individual comment settings, comments may also be turned off when sharing a video.

Community posts that share videos reflect the comment settings of those videos. When you share a video in a post and the video’s comments are turned off, comments will also be turned off for your post. Comments may be turned off for a video because:

If you are the owner of the video you’re sharing, you can choose to turn on or turn off comments on a specific video in YouTube Studio. Learn how to choose your comment settings.
