YouTube is introducing a game-changing feature, the ‘For You’ section, on creators’ channel home tabs, set to roll out on November 20. This new addition welcomes visitors with a personalized list of recommended videos curated from the channel, leveraging the viewer’s watch history. For creators, it’s an opportunity to enhance viewer engagement and expand content discovery, potentially translating to increased revenue and heightened brand awareness.
Creators maintain control over this feature, able to toggle it on/off in channel settings. More detailed customization options are available by clicking “more settings” in the “recommendations for your viewers” section. This empowers creators to curate content display preferences, including shorts, livestreams, or full videos, individually or in combination. They can opt to showcase all content or focus solely on the most recent material.
A YouTube spokesperson emphasized that the ‘For You’ section provides a tailored experience, surfacing personalized content aligned with individual viewers’ preferences. Creators can decide the types of content to showcase and whether to highlight all content or only that posted within the past 12 months. This feature signifies YouTube’s commitment to personalized user experiences and opens new avenues for creators to connect with their audience.
