Google+ will be unlinked from YouTube and other Google products
Big changes are coming to how Google+ works in conjunction with other Google products, more specifically YouTube.
From Google blog post (http://tgcafe.it/1JLpNQk
): "People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier. But we’ve also heard that it doesn’t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use.So in the coming months, a Google Account will be all you’ll need to share content, communicate with contacts, create a YouTube channel and more, all across Google. YouTube will be one of the first products to make this change, and you can learn more on their blog. As always, your underlying Google Account won’t be searchable or followable, unlike public Google+ profiles. And for people who already created Google+ profiles but don’t plan to use Google+ itself, we’ll offer better options for managing and removing those public profiles."
Google describes this change as putting "everything in its right place."What does it mean with respect to comments on YouTube, and to your overall YouTube experience?
The comments you make on YouTube will now appear only on YouTube, not also on Google+. And vice-versa.
This starts rolling out today.
♨ Your YouTube channel
In the coming weeks, YouTube will no longer require a Google+ profile when you want to upload, comment, or create a channel.
If you’re happy with everything as it is now, then just keep on keepin’ on.
If you want to remove your Google+ profile, you’ll be able to do this in the coming months
, but do not do it now or you’ll delete your YouTube channel
And there you have it. More G+ housekeeping.
