How To Manage Your YouTube Subscriptions In A Better Way

YouTube is one of the best places out there to create, watch and share video content over the Internet. It is one of the top most visited places on the Internet. It has over a billion users and people watch hundreds of millions of hours on YouTube everyday.

People crate videos and upload to YouTube in their channels and let the world view that. Many celebrities, Artists have their own channel and whenever they produce something then they upload it to YouTube. It is amazing platform to showcase their talent. People can subscribe to a channel to get updated whenever a new content gets posted in that channel.
Whenever we login into our YouTube account and open Home Page, we get to see videos with most popular views in front of us, and recommendations generated based on our Activity on YouTube.

To view what videos have been uploaded by the channels we got subscribed to, we need to switch to subscriptions tab next to Home. The problem here is the videos uploaded by channels will be listed in vertical manner and channels are displayed one after other. We need to scroll down to see all the content. Even though on the left side, we get to see subscriptions, if we click on them, we will be navigated to that particular channel. There is no way to manage our subscriptions more effectively.
