The number has been lowered to just 100 subscribers. If that weren’t enough, YouTube is also offering new features to that same group, such as the ability to link out to online stores or other sites in video annotations, among other things. In other YouTube news, the company that opened a studio space for its creators to produce new content in L.A. late last year, and now it is doing the same in New York City. As of October 2014, top YouTube creators will have a location that is tricked out with all the latest technology to help them both create new content and learn new techniques and best practices.
In Other Words: You can stream your wedding, bar mitzvah, and next family reunion on YouTube if you can get everybody to subscribe.
