YouTube is Finally Fixing its Blocking Feature, Makes Other Updates for Creators as Well

YouTube makes quite a few updates on a more or less regular basis because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up fixing the problems that its users are getting so frustrated by for the most part. One of the most recent changes that YouTube is rolling out involves improving its blocking feature, essentially by reducing or possibly eliminating the time window between blocking a user and this block actually going into effect.

Previously if you ended up blocking someone or the other on YouTube, you would still potentially see their content posted in your feed for about 48 hours before the block finally goes into effect. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that YouTube is changing that since it is something that many if not most YouTube users have been quite annoyed by as of late, and that’s not the only change that the platform is bringing either.

Another major change that YouTube is bringing in has to do with flagged posts. When you report or flag a video, you will now get feedback regarding what action was taken against the video. While you might not get a reply if no action is taken, you can still get updates on this report so that you can contribute to making YouTube a much safer place than it currently is. That’s something that a lot of users will definitely be rather grateful for with all things having been considered and taken into account.



A final update that YouTube is implementing involves user analytics. You can now go into your YouTube account and see daily changes in your number of subscribers. Getting a general overview is of course useful, but looking at the changes on a day to day basis can be a great deal more effective in that it can enable you to figure out how your channel is actually doing from an objective enough point of view. These changes will be welcomed by the average YouTube user these days.
