answering comemnts on youtube or not? – Makes apparently no difference on the activity or number of subscribers

In the alst week, I checked what happens when I stop answering comments or post a little message to new subscribers

Conclusion?

Same number of messages, same type of number of subscribers, etc.

In other terms, answering or not the comments makes no difference on that level.

It still might make a difference in how the audience feels about the channel but basically, it does not really influence the stats.
