NEW Comment Moderation Tool Deep Dive!

Hello Insiders! Today we’re talking with Robert about an update to help you improve conversation in comments on your videos by holding potentially inappropriate comments for review. You can opt-in to this feature at any time and in the coming months, we will be slowly rolling this out as the default setting.

This feature uses technology to automatically detect things like spam, self-promotion, gibberish and other potentially inappropriate comments, such as excessive profanity and taunts, but will not remove offensive comments solely for being negative or critical. The comments are held in YouTube Studio where channel owners can choose to approve, hide, or report them.

As a reminder, if you’d prefer not to see potentially inappropriate comments held by this setting, you can also choose to ignore the comments completely and leave them unreviewed in the “held for review” tab. Note: whether or not you review “held for review” comments does not directly impact your video’s performance or ability to be recommended.

You can also turn this feature off in Community Settings at any time, though we hope you’ll be partners with us in creating a healthy community and trying it out. Let us know what you think!
