YouTube’s Personal Stories

In a recent announcement, They said that these changes are based on how people look for videos on health-related conditions. For this reason, a separate section would be dedicated only to personal stories coming from the patients.
“People don’t want to seek answers to their health-related question on it. Instead, they come for the question: How do I live with this?” explains. Similarly, the platform’s search patterns reveal the same, as they are least based on “information-seeking” motives, while directed towards “support-seeking.”
YouTube makes it evident that through its personal stories shelf – viewers will have an opportunity to invest in a range of queries — from cancer to mental health concerns such as depression and anxiety.
