    YouTube is releasing stories! What do you think?

    As a creator I love it, that's where my audience is. Here is an article from Adweek. However, I can confirm it's not quite available for those with over 10,000 subscribers, it's still in beta. I'm also posting the transcript of a conversation with YouTube support I had. Note: My channel is around 45k subs.

    Obviously it's just copying Snap and Instagram but it's a great feature. I think Youtube are trying to take on other social medias by offering the same features as them (like the community tab as well, being to post just like Twitter) so that people don't have to go to those places to interact with their favorite Youtubers. Youtube might become less of a video sharing platform and more of a social media platform. I hope nothing changes and they just add things.

    i keep hearing about this but don't know what it is. How can youtube be a book when it's made out of a computer and the internet? Isn't a video already a storey? I wish the world would stop inventing new ways to complicate my life.. is it one of these things that only young people know what it is? like a meme? i duno.

    Me neither.

    I've read the OP 3 times now and it's still not clear or even explained.

    Have neither of you interacted with Stories on Snapchat, Instagram, or Facebook? Essentially at the top of your feed (subscription tab on YouTube mobile app) there will be profile pictures of the youtubers you follow. If it’s highlighted then they’ve posted a story, aka a short vertical video or picture. It’s called a story because multiple are generally posted in a row and throughout the day create a “story”.

    I’m a fan of social tools like the community tab and stories coming to the YouTube platform, as they allow creators more ways to communicate and interact with their audience. Also a great way for YouTube to keep folks on their platform, and likely monetize them as well. Which of course will hopefully be another way for fans to support their fav creators.

    Nope not really. Snapchat i thought is for children? Instagram mostly for selfie taking upside down women posing next to cliff edges? and I suffer the Facepage only as a contact directory to look up family/friends when I need to.. I don't post anything or use it for any other purpose. I object strongly to its noseyness

    I believe that the stories on youtube are those things that will pop up in your feed on mobile a youtube posted, normally with updates or things they wanted to say to their audiences, it kind of a way to announce something or get feedback from something without posting a video. They can also have images and youtube video imbedded into them. I've seen a few, and my favorite use so far is for channels working on big projects like animation, it allows them to show pictures and say what stages they are in, and share what's going on. 10k subs is really far away, but that's just one more reason to get there!

    That’d be the community tab, Stories will be at the top of your feed. You know the circles that show if someone has uploaded? When it’s highlighted that means they’ve posted a story, you can click and watch.
