The internet is a constant popularity contest, and everyone is trying to collect followers, friends, shares, likes, hearts, views, +1s etc. You know the soul crushing drill. But YouTube wants to change the conversation. They’ve lowered the bar so you only need 100 or more subscribers to be able to live stream.
The move comes just a few months after YouTube changed the minimum requirement to 1,000 subscribers for live streaming. And with this latest rash of feature upgrades you can also create custom thumbnails for videos to avoid awkward autogenerated moments. Live streaming for the masses is rolling out over the next few days. So basically your self-worth should be tied to your YouTube channel and it’s pretty pathetic if you can’t get 100 subscribers. OK, good meeting. [YouTube Creators]
