Sure, there are haters out there. But what would YouTube be without comments? Exchanging ideas and growing a community are only two reasons why it’s worth turning on comments and letting viewers share their minds below your videos. Here is how it works.
Comments from viewers can be a great way to get to know your audience better. You learn what people think about your videos and you gain insights about topics people want to know more about.
Sometimes viewers have questions you might not have anticipated. Besides the opportunity to answer them directly, you probably generate lots of topic ideas from reading through the comment section.
Interacting with your audience in the comments will help you grow a community and thus grow your channel faster. For this reason, it's important to know how to turn on comments for YouTube videos.
You have two options when it comes to turning on comments on videos. You can enable comments by default for all videos or you enable/disable comments on individual videos.
If you don’t want people to comment under a particular video, change comment settings on your content page. The same applies if you want to turn on comments for selected videos.
