So Long Google+
Who's really a fan of Google+? Like really a fan?
I thought so.
Google/YouTube finally got the message after two years of trying to force creators to make G+ accounts and integrating G+ commenting. Today they announced that:
1. You will be able to use YouTube without a G+ account.
2. Comments will be completely separated between the two services. Basically comments made on YouTube will stay on YouTube and G+ comments will stay where no one will ever see...
If you're happy with how things are going or don't care, there is no need to change anything. Just leave it as is.
But just remember, DON'T DELETE YOUR G+ ACCOUNT YET. This will delete your YouTube channel now.
