Google is letting every possible way that it could be done to promote its social network Google+, yesterday Google through its YouTube blog states that now the user can promote their Google+ accounts on their YouTube channel – the video site announced that users can start promoting their Google+ profiles as a way to drive more visitors to their presence on Google’s social network.
The updates will uniformly allow the Google to give YouTube a cleaner interface to looks like Google’s other sites – Gmail and Google+ – but one thing is what visible as I mentioned above to Google is leaving no stone unturned to attract all of the YouTube user base to create a similar happenings and followings on its Social network.
Here is a full list of changes:
Google+ profile on YouTube
Want to share your Google+ profile or Google+ Page on your YouTube channel? We’ve added a feature to let you promote your presence on G+. We’re looking for other ways to bring the benefits of Google+ to your YouTube channel, so as always please give us your feedback!
Post videos/playlists to your own feed
You can now share videos and playlists in your Channel Feed by posting a Channel Bulletin. When you’re on your Feed tab you’ll see a box “Post to Feed,” where you can enter a comment and add a link to share a video or a playlist. When you’ve posted the bulletin, it will show up in your Channel Feed with your comment below the video. Viewers who are subscribed to your channel will be notified when you post to your feed in their homepage feed.
Homepage and Channel Feeds
After experiments and lots of your feedback, we’re releasing an update to how events are displayed in the feed. The update focuses on three main changes: (1) the video title is more prominent for upload and sharing events, (2) aggregated events now feature a “+more” button which will bring more attention to the event than the previously smaller notification and (3) adding videos to a playlist has a new cleaner styling.
Customizing your videos is easier with our new annotations features. We’ve been adding more options to the Annotations Editor like a new annotation type, a full color palette and a new timeline. We’ve also added annotation styles, which lets you choose a templated design to apply to your videos. You can quickly pick a design for your annotation and apply it your video. Start using these today in the Editor by clicking the arrow next to any upload in the Video Manager.
