    Hello, everybody! I'm back on behalf of the Community Team with another Community Newsletter! I'm happy to see that everybody had fun dabbing all over the last newsletter, lol! This week is more of a "short and sweet" edition. Hope you enjoy! :)


    Monetization Troubleshooting & Advice
    There have been discussions in the community recently about ad-friendly content, demonetization, and various concerns revolving around the situations that can arise. I want to make sure that you have two of the YouTube support articles that are important in regards to these issues. Knowledge can be a powerful thing. The more you understand, the more prepared and self-reliant you can be! The first article is Advertiser-friendly content guidelines, which lists "Content that is not eligible for advertising" and "Best practices for creating advertiser-friendly content". The second article helps you Troubleshoot video monetization and asks you which monetization icon you're seeing next to your video in video manager, and then lists detailed info for what that icon means.

    Facebook "Watch" - YouTube Threat?
    There's quite a bit of buzz in the air about Facebook "Watch" and how it competes with YouTube. @ItsJustJord wrote a great post full of details a few days ago, and while I was searching for YouTube News this week I found that Forbes posted on this topic too. Check out the information and then hop on over to Jord's thread and join the discussion about what "Watch" can mean for us all.

    15 Best YouTube Channels to Watch

    TIME posted an article a couple of days ago listing what they consider to be 15 amazing YouTube channels and declaring them as the "Best to Watch Right Now". Keep an eye on channels that the media recognizes as significant, and see what they're doing right:

    Concurrent Viewer Counter Coming??
    This could be interesting! It looks as though YouTube may be planning to add a live concurrent viewer counter so that you can see how many people are watching a video at any moment, just like live streams - but for all videos!


    Why Subscribers Matter (ft. Veritasium)
    Quick video from YouTube Creator Academy providing specific reasons as to why subscribers are so important!

    The concurrent viewer thing sounds interesting, I know a lot of people complain that the estimated views are always off by quite a lot.

    I have to say...that live viewer watch thing seems interesting. Moreover, I've been having monetization issues on YT.
