To me, commenting and replying on Youtube has always been a hassle. In order to find a comment, or a reply to a comment, one would have to search through countless posts in a comment box. Which, I may add, was particularly annoying so I personally refrained from making any comments on videos altogether.
According to Mashable, Youtube joined forces with Google+, a leading social networking site to upgrade the problem of the disorganized comment box. Now users of both Youtbe and Google+ will find it easier to carry on conversations because users will see people from their google+ circle, video producers and celebrities at the top of the comment box.
Although this is very convenient for those who have a Google+ account, but what about those users who don’t? They will still be forced to deal with all the hassles that come with having a conversion in the comment box. And also, I have a Google+ account– but I rarely use it for any social networking purposes; most of my friends are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. So in reality, this integration has no effect on me, because I probably still won’t comment too often on Youtube anyway. But I do wish they would have done a collaboration with Facebook or Twitter, because I have active accounts on those sites and their commenting system works really well. Well, only time shall tell… til then, it’s Google+ .
What do you think about the new comment box YouTube has introduced? Do you like it, dislike it and why?
