For those who have YouTube channel, it was once a pain to lead everyone into two formats of URLs. This caused a lot of confusions to viewers who are not aware of the difference when trying to reach a certain channel.
YouTube is pushing a live update today, which will have both URLs directly lead to the creator in either formats. This will help the content creators to gain those lost views from users who mistakenly use the wrong URL format.
The update will only affect less than 0.02% of channels and YouTube will be reaching out to them to fix their URL before May 31, 2017.
Hopefully, this YouTube update will push our content creators to make quality YouTube videos and won’t have to suffer the said issues.
