YouTube, the most famous name in the internet world for videos, has recently launched a new feature for commenting system. YouTube has announced a special feature, which will allow you to see the comments of the people, you care about. New tools will also help video creators in moderating conversations for welcome and unwelcome voices.
From this week onward, YouTube comments; powered by Google+, will be shown in your channel discussion tab. This update will take place for all the videos in this year later, as more ways are being brought to you to connect with similar faces in YouTube. You can have a look at this image for better understanding:
If you are curious to know more about the new commenting system, have a look:
- Comments for which you care about move to the top: This is very special as I think for any video because you will be able to see the posts at the top of the list from the video’s creator, popular personalities, engaged discussions about the video, and people in your Google+ Circles and you can know about the videos much better.
- Join the conversation publicly or privately: This is also a good feature launched by YouTube. In this, you can choose to start a conversation which can be seen by everyone on YouTube and Google+, or only by people in your Circles or just your best friends. Features like Gmail replies are threaded so you can easily follow the conversations.
- Better ways to moderate comments: New tools are introduced to review a comment before it is posted. You can block certain words or save time by auto-approving comments from certain fans. This can help you in managing comments on your videos, spend less time moderating, and more time sharing videos and connecting with the real world.
- A better control over spam: The new commenting system will help in keeping the videos spam free. Google is well aware of those comments and hence the new system is aimed to fix this by personalizing and the ranking comments for each and individual user.
- You can switch back to old system: YouTube has also kept a system so that you can switch back to the older system, which is not much useful though as new system is much better with more features.
- No loss of old comments: As soon as, the YouTube switches to its new version, its old comments are still safe and they will also be ranked and intermixed with new comments accordingly. Private conversations will remain private.
- Improved quality of comments: Users are almost obliged to disclose their real identities when they comment, which should lift the quality of the discussion on YouTube because of the integrated Google+ feature.
- Blocking System: YouTube is allowing the owner to create a back-list with words that automatically push comments into review and just like before, they can also block the users. Here is something change in the new system as it will stop telling users that they are blocked and show them their own comments when they are logged in.
