About time! I've always been bothered by YouTube acting like I have two accounts because I refused to use my real name.

Wait, when does the killing of Google+ and YT actually take effect?

I have never been a fan of Google+ and was really pissed that I was forced to get an account. It was literally something else to keep track of that I wanted absolutely nothing to do with. The second YT is rid of Google+ I'm deleting the accounts (all of them) that I was forced into. That was the only reason I had them really.

I wonder what made Google make the decision. Perhaps it was all the dead accounts that weren't actually being used because people were forced into them.

From the official YouTube blog:

In the coming weeks, YouTube will no longer require a Google+ profile when you want to upload, comment, or create a channel. If you’re happy with everything as it is now, then just keep on keepin’ on. If you want to remove your Google+ profile, you’ll be able to do this in the coming months, but do not do it now or you’ll delete your YouTube channel.

This thing seems quite unexpected, but I take it (if it actually happens). I have never upgraded to Google+ because both I didn't need the extra features and because I wanted to see how many features were going to be restricted.

Let's see when I will finally be able to comment on channels other than TASvideos' one and a few others.

If they remove google+, the only bad thing is that we can't have multiple accounts without having to make a new email address. Otherwise, get rid of the shitty google+ thing, it's another way of Google to track your data for ads. That's probably their only reason for it.
