YouTube’s mission is to give everyone a voice and show them the world. With over 1 billion monthly active users, it has become the platform of a generation, shaping and empowering culture and society worldwide.

@TeamYouTube’s social media operation delivers support experiences (proactive and reactive!) that transition YouTube from a corporate brand to a human one – who listens, educates, and advocates for all viewers and creators; while managing brand reputation and minimizing viral support tickets with speedy solutions.
