What Are Featured Channels on YouTube
What are featured channels on YouTube? Well, featured channels are essentially channels that are displayed on channel pages for visitors to see. Often, channels that are featured belong to friends or content creators that create similar videos to the channel that is featuring them.
For many years, featured channels were displayed in the form of a sidebar on the right side of the screen on channel pages. Recently, however, this was changed. Now, featured channels have a tab of their own on channel pages and are displayed as a channel section like videos, playlists, etc.
There's a lot of debate as to whether the new way of displaying featured channels is better than the old way. As with most things, it takes time for users to get used to changes. As time goes on, YouTube users will get used to the new location of featured channels, and they will begin to click on them more often.
