Google+ and YouTube

Google's changes to YouTube have got many in the YouTube community up in arms. It would appear that Google want to make YouTube a subsidiary of Google+, allowing comments on videos shared on Google+ to appear automatically on YouTube. Furthermore, I noticed that I couldn't comment upon nor "vote up" comments posted by YouTube users on my own videos (I only seem to have the option of deleting them!) whilst I could add my penny's worth to posts automatically coming in from Google+. This may be a temporary glitch, of course, but it came out of the blue and there are many, as I have said, that are unhappy with the new arrangement.

Emma Blackery seems to have summed up the mood amongst the YouTube community. This movie may not be online for much longer for obvious reasons, but I do hope that they let it be. She does swear a bit, though...
