YouTube to Let Creators Customize the Look & Feel of Their Channels
YouTube has decided to give creators the ability to customize the look and feel of their layout and branding!
This new update will allow creators to change the look and feel of their channel by customizing the layout, branding, and more. This is the first time YouTube is giving its creators control over their own channels. Representatives from YouTube previewed the update in the latest Creator Insider news flash video, and explained how YouTube Studio would be the creator’s one-stop destination for all their channel editing.
The company also goes on to talk about taking a mobile-first approach to channel customization. YouTube also highlighted a feature called Creator Mixes, which you can find in the “up next” suggestions that appear when a user is watching a video. It’s an opportunity for creators to “have the algorithm work for them.”

Businesses on Facebook Can Now Respond to Customers in Messenger
Facebook is coming up with a new inbox on Messenger! This will make it easier for business owners to respond to incoming messages from the same platform they use to message family and friends. With this new inbox, businesses can manage all their communication through a single app, rather than toggling through different apps for writing and responding to customer queries.
Facebook had announced its plan of providing a dedicated inbox back in May, but the feature became available only recently. Small businesses, who had to layoff additional staff amid Coronavirus lockdowns, can now respond to customers’ queries quickly and not lose sales!
Businesses don’t have to make any changes to take advantage of the new feature, Facebook says. It will roll out automatically as long as their personal Facebook account is connected to their business’s Facebook Page. This new feature is currently available on iOS and will arrive on Android soon!
