Down from 1000, YouTube is significantly reducing the number of subscribers you need to be able to make Community posts, the company announced Thursday.

Starting October 12th, users with more than 500 subscribers will be able to make community posts in a move the video platform says will open up the feature to “millions” more channels.

Community posts are Facebook-like news or status updates from creators that can be found on a dedicated Community tab on their profile, your home or subscriptions tab.

Youtube has also announced that the feature will replace the Discussion tab on the same day.

YouTube says it is “working to bring Community posts to you (Creators with less than 500 subscribers) in the future.”
