YouTube coaxes out real names to combat comment cruelty
According to Wired, once you upload a brand new video or post a comment, YouTube will ask if it may use your real identity that have been related to your Google+ account. Users can opt out of using their real names, although YouTube will then ask why they declined.
In addition, YouTube will offer up past comments for review to ensure you want them linked to your real name. The corporate is reportedly attempting to freshen up its image for potential advertisers and filmmakers, as some videos invite walls of negative comments. If Google’s insistence on using your real name bothers you, then there’s always the opt-out option, and the corporate says the feature is specific to the u. s. for now.
Still, will probably be rolling out internationally within the near future. It marks the quick expanding single identity and tight integration that Google is rolling out across all its services, spearheaded by Google+. Some was vocal in regards to the changes, but that hasn’t stopped 250 million users from registering with the service, with around 150 million accessing Google+ every single day.
