How to Join The YouTube Community and Gain Friends!


Are you one of the many people who takes joy at visiting YouTube and sharing videos online? What is nice about the site is that it is not only a video sharing website, but with its online community section YouTube can also be a way of meeting friends—much like with other online social networking sites.

Community Basics

When deciding to take part in YouTube’s online community section, some people wonder why they should do so. For one, you can meet friends through it. There are a lot of social networking sites that are intended for such use, but what makes it different is that in YouTube you will not only meet people but at the same time enjoy their videos. Internet security can be a major concern, and interacting with other people on the Internet may actually put you in harm’s way. So when using YouTube and meeting friends there, you are advised to be careful, although meeting friends can be really exciting.

YouTube Groups

The YouTube community works by creating a few groups. For example, one group found on YouTube is funny videos. If you made a funny video, you can ask to have it displayed in the funny video group. If you are just interested in watching videos, you can request some of your favorite videos to be posted. If you are just a viewer, you can also request some of the videos in which you are interested to be posted. This will give you the opportunity to watch videos you are sure to like, and it will also introduce you to the community where you can meet friends.

Community Tab

If you decide to join a YouTube community, you only have to go to the site and click on the “Community” tab, which is at the top of the YouTube page. There you will find a list of YouTube community groups. As previously mentioned, funny videos is one of those groups. You will then see a discussion section. This section is like an online message board. There you can write your own messages or reply to messages from other members. Joining a certain YouTube community group can be pleasant because it automatically lets you meet other people with the same interests as your own.

TestTube Section

Aside from joining the YouTube community groups, if you also want to interact with other YouTube members, you may want to think about visiting the TestTube section. You can access TestTube by clicking the “TestTubes” link in small print at the bottom of each YouTube page. While this feature is still in the trial stages, it is definitely going to  become a YouTube hit quickly.

As outlined above, YouTube was not created only for uploading and sharing videos, but also for meeting friends online. If you haven’t tried it, you might check it out and give it a shot.
