    Public chat YouTube , a video can be the source of many interactions. Comments are a sign that a video is generating interest. Better, they boost the popularity of this content and contribute to the reputation of their creator. It is possible to react to comments by liking or replying to them, whether you are the owner of the video or a simple member of the community.
