Google recently announced – or has pretty quietly updated the YouTube Help page a few years ago – that all the existing remarks that were created before the comment editor would be removed will be removed from the video until the beginning of next year.
Back in May 2017. Google has canceled the comment editor because creators misplaced the notion of their video uploads. These color blocks caused circumference and, quite frankly, tedious – the videos looked unorganized, and pop-ups were confusing.
However, these remarks are suitable methods for video creators to advertise their other content or favorite products or anything they want to share with
To respond to these needs in less disturbing ways, Google has introduced tabs and final screens in 2016, and both are still in use today. The tabs are cleaner designed pop-ups that appear in the upper corner at certain places in the video. Touching this can open a menu of additional links, videos, surveys, and more in an organized way.
Alternatively, the final screens are quite self-defined interface options: users can choose to display a video at the end of the video that can basically contain everything they want to highlight – channels, products, and even more connections.
Both of these works also work on a mobile platform, as opposed to remarks, and achieve seven times more clicks on the platform. The notes, on the other hand, were much more often closed than they were used, so when all were removed from January 15 next year, it is likely that no one will be heartburn.
