How creating/sharing playlists on YouTube can open up opportunities to socialize in more meaningful ways
After reading: What have I missed? What are you planning to do with this new feature?
This just happened!
One of the best things about Google+ that I've mentioned again and again and again is the ability to have meaningful conversations that aren't limited by your relationship to another person being somewhat substantially existent offline (like Facebook) or being connected to the fetters of 140 characters (Twitter, obviously).
But wait... we just got the ability to open up a YouTube playlist and remain ON Google+ while we watch it...
Shut the front door and get to the point!
Have you ever asked a question on Google+? Have you ever answered one? Have you ever tried to show someone... something ? Let's say that I was a part of a burgeoning Google+ mambo dancing community, and I was discussing the benefits of New York style mambo over Puerto Rican style mambo and someone said, "Wait, what's New York style mambo?" - instead of just trying to explain the difference(s) - you can say, "Well, let me show you!" - and then you can share a playlist of Eddie Torres' New York style mambo lessons right there - no need to leave the site - no need to rely on your words to explain something that simply needs to be seen!
For me - I like to help people use Google+. I don't know how to make videos though, this is a playlist I would have shared with folks from the beginning that has a few tutorials and also some other interesting videos.
Also - this is useful for people who simply cannot articulate an answer to a question that you've asked. This is frustrating, because you can tell they KNOW the answer, but they just don't know how to... teach, maybe.
Show off your personality/interests without annoying people
I can use myself as an example for this one. A couple of Tuesdays ago - I started Tu(n)esday - where I share 3 tracks via YouTube. My ability to share has just grown and will allow me (if I remember) to share not just 3 tracks but an entire playlist. Because my tracks are a part of a playlist now - I can make themed playlists - I can customize the order in which they should be played etc.
If I had tried this before and created one long post - I could have only shared ONE video on G+ and the rest of the videos would have had to be links... so people would have to go back and forth just to see my playlist... not likely to happen.
Starting conversations here instead of on YouTube
We all know how those YouTube comment sections can get... fairly wild and ignorant. Now, when you share something worthy of conversation, you are sharing it with people with whom you want to speak about that video. You were able to do this before, for individual videos, but now you can do it with playlists... for example... you can have a playlist made up of Joaquin Phoenix's descent into pseudo-madness and talk about merit of such an experiment... or of course tell him to stick to Gladiator-type movies.
