Welcome to the Connected Church News by Natchi Lazarus.

This news item is part of the top 5 news (Week 3, Feb 2024) specially curated for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures. 

YouTube made two useful announcements last week. As a creator, you can now upload your videos directly from your (mobile) camera roll using your YouTube Studio app along with additional controls including monetization control. This was something that you were not able to do on mobile. You had to go to your desktop to tweak monetization control. But now you can do that on your mobile app itself, which could be handy. You will see a plus button right at the top of the app, and you can just click that and you can use the feature. The second feature is also important for ministries and non-profits. YouTube says that they are testing a new Community Post Feed. So it’s almost like a Facebook newsfeed with only posts, not YouTube videos, just posts, Community posts. The announcement says there will be a button called ‘View All Posts’ in the Home tab. Once you click on it, you’ll be able to see the Community Post Feed.

Here is the full list of the news items from Week 3, Feb 2024 with source links from OpenAI, ChatGPT, Google Gemini, AI, YouTube, X.
