‘Mentions’ are a way to tag the name of another channel in your video's title or description – this helps you build a network with other creators and credit partners or collabs.
When viewers tap a mention on mobile devices, a creator info panel will enter from the bottom of the screen. This panel will share info about the channel, including a description and their latest videos.
MENTION ANOTHER CREATOR
To add a mention when you're creating or editing the video title or description:
- Type the '@' symbol, followed by a channel name.
- Choose the channel name from a recommended list.
You can mention as many creators as you want, as long as their names fit within the character limit. When you mention another channel, they'll get a notification in their inbox.
FIND MENTIONS OF YOUR CHANNEL
- Sign in to YouTube Studio.
- From the left-hand menu, select Comments.
- Choose the Mentions tab.
CHANGE MENTION NOTIFICATIONS
Not every mention triggers a notification. You will be notified about important ones, like when a creator with a similar number of subscribers mentions you.
