Diversity is our nation’s strength, yet in America today, we are seeing new levels of fear and misunderstanding. It’s never been more important to sit down and listen to each other — hear each other’s stories, learn about what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes, and remember what makes us unique and what we all have in common.
That’s why we launched our YouTube Creators for Change program back in September, an initiative dedicated to amplifying the voices of YouTube role models who are tackling division and hate by creating videos that share stories of hope, connection and understanding. Today we’re introducing our latest initiative in this program: a new partnership with StoryCorps, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to recording and archiving oral stories from all Americans.
Through this new collaboration, we’re teaming up with StoryCorps to help start a national conversation about identity and belonging in America, beginning with a production program at the YouTube Spaces in L.A. and N.Y. in December. At these Spaces, we will create custom-built sets that look and feel like the iconic StoryCorps recording booths where participating creators will help extend StoryCorps recordings to video. These creators will be able to come in with a friend, loved one or person they respect to talk about their experiences in our country as it stands today – both the good and bad.
As part of YouTube Creators for Change, we’re also proud to support the StoryCorps’ campaign #WhoWeAre, created in partnership with Upworthy. The #WhoWeAre series features animated stories of everyday Americans selected from the StoryCorps archive that help us remember our best selves.
We hope these conversations will inspire people around the country to reflect and share their own personal stories about who they are and who they want to be. We’re thrilled to be working with StoryCorps on bringing their approach to listening and recognizing our shared humanity to video, and can’t wait to share more on our work together in the coming months.

For those of you who communicate using Facebook Messenger and are subscribed to the music streaming service Spotify, you can now share favorite songs and playlists seamlessly.
Facebook has been improving its Messenger application over recent months by including new functionality. Some of which include the ability to pay through the app and call an Uber car when on the go. Now you’ll be able to share songs and playlists from your Spotify account to your friends and family through Facebook Messenger directly. The capability has already been implemented into Facebook’s Messenger application and requires no update. Both Android and iOS apps include the new feature.
Spotify already has a way of its own to share music with others using Email, SMS, and WhatsApp. However, being able to share from the Facebook Messenger application without having to go into Spotify is a big plus. For Facebook this will offer more monetization opportunities and for Spotify it means easier sharing than competing music streaming services. Hopefully for Spotify users will notice the capability and consider it when choosing a music streaming service to use.
