While it's easy to backup your videos to the new Google Photos, and even to create your own movies, YouTube offers more advanced editing tools, plus options to promote and even monetize your videos.
It's easy to import your videos and movie creations from Google Photos to YouTube:
1. Sign in to YouTube
2. Open the Upload page
3. Click "Import" under "Import Videos from Google Photos"
4. Select the videos you want to import
5. Add title, description and tags
6. Publish your video
Note that if your YouTube channel is connected to a Google+ Local or Brand Page, you can import videos from a manager's Google Photos or from videos uploaded to the connected Google+ Page
- if you want to import videos from a Google account that is a manager of the channel and Page, sign in as the manager, then switch to your Page-connected channel identity (www.youtube.com/channel_switcher)
- if you want to import videos uploaded to the Google+ Page connected to your YouTube channel, you must sign into that channel's special Google account directly. Learn how to set up a password for your Google+ Page:

Just Do It
I know from personal, bitter experience, how important this stuff is.
Content has been king for a very long time, and that doesn’t look like it will be changing anytime soon. And that’s all well and good if you’re an A+ writer, but what happens if you want to pack your business blog full of great content when you think you suck at writing?

Pinterest and Shopify have partnered to make it easy for businesses to sell their products on Pinterest using Buyable Pins.
This new type of Pin — announced earlier today — includes a “Buy it” button that lets consumers checkout and pay for products they discover on Pinterest using Apple Pay or their credit card.
I can't wait to play with this!

Using Twitter ads for lead generation is all about strategy. Those “needy teenager” ads you see are based on the metric of high engagement. They’re asking for attention because the more attention they get, the more successful they are considered. These ads could drive tons of user interaction and be a great tool for solidifying brand awareness.

Alive, kicking and going places. I'm on board, ready for the next wave.
And some other badly mashed clichés.
This is probably the most detail I've heard (head of Streams and Photos), or anyone else at Google talk about the future of Google+, confirming that not only is it not dead, but that we’re actually adapting to how the product is successful in market and doubling-down on that.
Definitely a worthwhile read, with plenty of interesting tidbits. Thanks to for getting the inside scoop on this. These were some of my favorite questions...
Is it fair to say Google is distancing itself from the original concept of Plus?
It’s fair to say you’re about to see a huge shift in what Plus is becoming. It’s a shift in response to what users are telling us. That’s a very healthy and natural thing. As opposed to sticking to strategies of years ago, we’re actually adapting to how the product is successful in market and doubling-down on that.
Looks like we also have confirmation that the Google+ might be dropping its name ideas have not seriously been considered.
Have you ever thought of dropping the name “Plus”?
I’m not sure what that would accomplish. It hasn’t seriously crossed my mind. I think there are product pivots and refinements to what that product actually is. We have been less than clear about who that product is good for and who that product is for and what it’s good for. I think you’re seeing us crisp that up and actually have a much better articulated value proposition so that that becomes very evident to users: what, when and why to use this product.
This one is interesting, in case you thought Google was no longer valuing G+ in terms of helping to understand user's identity outside of Google+ across its other platforms:
How successful was Google Plus in understanding who was using Google in general?
It’s created a huge amount of value in creating common identity for users. The Google of 10 years ago was many separate, silo-ed identity and sharing systems. I think we have been successful in unifying that experience for users. And anytime you see a name or a face on Google, our team provides the infrastructure. And it is a service that is provided to all of Google, so whether you’re on search or maps or whatever, this team helps power that service.
