You sit down with a laptop, open YouTube, and watch a video so surreal, so inspiring, or heartwarming it makes you feel motivated to get up right at that moment and do something amazing for the person who created that content. In that moment have you ever felt the urge of culminating the absolutely perfect combination of words into a sentence to express your point of view, opinion, or feelings about it although it just seems as if no words in the English language can do justice to what you want to express? This is where emojis come in.
They help you exhibit all that you are feeling inside with a single icon. There are also more practical implications of using emojis in the comments or videos. The use of emojis will give your video more tractions and increase your YouTube video views by attracting more people especially the millennial generation. Emojis can be used as a cunning strategy to improve the search engine optimization of your video and help increase the traction it gets to augment your content’s ranking. Here is how to put emojis on YouTube comments.
Option 1: For Windows PC:
On Windows 10 to see the emojis you can use a keyboard shortcut that will show you the emoji keyboard. To access the emoji keyboard press the Windows key along with the semi-colon (;) or the Windows key and the period (.). For now, windows give the options of choosing from six types of emojis to choose from which include Animal Faces, Foods, Celebrities, Plants, Smiley Faces, Objects, People, Transportation, Places, and symbols. Simply select the emoji you want to comment with and post.
Option 2: Copy Emojis From Websites
The most convenient way to include emojis in your comments is to use the copy and paste option. All you have to do is right-click on an emoji on any website and select “copy”. Go to the YouTube comment and click on the paste to put the emoji in your comment. In case you want to use your keyboard press Ctrl (C) to copy the emoji and then Ctrl (P) to paste it in the comments. There is an everlasting list of options to choose from in this case. Run free with your creativity!
Why YouTube has opted against having the typical emoji keyboard is more relevant to the concept of spamming. When a certain video is spammed that is an overload of unsolicited comments, the views can get frozen or they even decrease in number. However, the use of emojis does not freeze a video. Use the power of your emojis smartly if you want to improve the subscribers and views on the video. A foolproof way to allure more subscribers is to use emojis in your video’s title or description. Don’t overload a comment with a bunch of smiles, be scanty with the emojis but let the icon speak for itself. Sometimes less is more.
