Google announces cutting software ties between YouTube and their social network Google+. No longer will YouTube require a Google+ profile for new users looking to upload, comment, or create a channel. No longer will comments posted on a YouTube video also be posted on a user's Google+ profile. Freedom from one or the other is upon us. No longer will Google be pushing Google+ directly in to the comments section of YouTube, and both parties will be the better for it.

With the cut between the social network Google+ and video network YouTube comes an end to YouTube comments appearing on Google+. This will have a big effect on the social network for those that follow people who comment on YouTube videos on the regular. For those that only follow people who stick to Google+ exclusively, not much will change.

When a person shares a YouTube video to Google+, YouTube will now no longer be posting a notification in their comments section about said share. Because nobody wanted to know that anyway.

Users wishing to remove their Google+ from the face of the earth may do so soon. BUT -

And this is a big but: Users should NOT remove their Google+ profile until Google gives the go-ahead. Google has not cut the ties between one network and the other yet. They will soon.

If you delete your Google+ profile now, you'll delete your YouTube channel.

You need to wait. Stay tuned here and to Google's your channel and Google+ page (https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2663685) for more information.

Ooooooooh shit. Is salvation finally upon us after these many years?

Now, the real question is, will this mean that YouTube will stop using Google's search engine to provide me with stupid "recommended" videos that I've never heard of in my life? If so, then I'm totally excited. If not, then I'm still just as equally excited.

Three words: Good effing riddance.

(rolls eyes) Why anyone thought adding Google+ to YouTube was a good idea in the first place is beyond me.

I enjoy having a unified notification box for all my Google stuff. Having my conversations flow between G+ and Youtube was very convenient too.
