Youtube Co-founder writes hate comment regarding new comment system

Last week Youtube started rolling out its new Google Plus comment system in an effort to reduce hate against video creators, racist comments and spam. The Google Plus comment system will allow users to post a comment on Youtube but using their actual Google Plus name, with this people are less anonymous and will less likely make hate comments, at least that was the plan.

Youtube’s co-founder Jawed Karim has just made a comment using this new system expressing its opinion regarding the new comment system “why the fuck do i need a google+ account to comment on a video?”

The new comment system has been getting much hate for forcing users to use their Google Plus account, it has also been experiencing issues with users using the Chrome web browser where it wouldn’t allow users to reply comments, this issue doesn’t occur when using other browsers like Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer. Do you like the new comment system? Let us know!

Update: Here is a guide that explains how to get rid of the new Youtube comments!

  1. I can’t stand the new comment system. I was having trouble even seeing upvotes/downvotes for comments. The ordering is weird. There’s just so much wrong with it.

    1. I have to agree with you, also… it is causing mayor lag for me when loading the page. Lets hope Google gets a fix for the not being able to see upvotes and downvotes properly

  2. I wonder why Jawed Karim stooped to the level of many YouTube users who used rude language while making comments under YouTube videos?

    1. Good point, maybe it was just to try and show Google that even though his official Google plus account is associated to the comment, users are still not scared of making rude comments.
