Summary

Only a handful of family vlogging channels will be allowed to keep their comments section open — and the Murrays aren’t included.Most people might think of YouTube’s comment section as nothing more than a haven for trolls, but for YouTubers comments are a way to communicate with viewers, Jon and Danielle told The Verge. “We kind of police them periodically, but we can’t check them as they’re coming in — not every single one.”Most creators don’t have a YouTube rep; according to Chapman, those who do have been able to turn their comments back on. And some creators fear that if comments are disabled, the videos won’t show up as readily on search — which means fewer people will see the videos.Danielle and Jon don’t have a rep at YouTube that they work with, despite being on the platform for years. Now it’s just them — and they haven’t been able to get in contact with YouTube about their comments section.“It’s just poor communication from YouTube,” Danielle said.
