Update: Google is shutting down Google+. After data breaches, low user numbers, and being put on the backburners of Google’s focus they’ve decided to terminate the social network.
Back when this post was written, (2013) YouTubers were required to make Google+ accounts. With this integration, comments came from the users Google+ account which more often than not showed the users real names. Changes were made back in 2017 to using the Youtubers comments rather than Google+ user profiles.
Using Google+ is now pretty much a mote point.
Now that the social sites shut down has been moved back from August to April of this year here are the things that you will see go away.
- Private video sharing to G+ circles
- Custom Google+ URLs for channels
- Editing your channel’s icon and art on mobile
- Linking to any Google+ profiles on channels
- Commenting features on videos with an outdated YouTube mobile app (Versions from before September 2016)

“WordPress 3.7 JUST CAME OUT!” you say.
It did, but attention has already shifted to the upcoming WordPress update – WordPress 3.8.
And the attention is not necessarily positive.
Where there was near unanimous applause for the technological improvements made to 3.7, there is certainly an “angels and demons” dynamic surrounding the release of WordPress 3.8.
Should you be excited or scared?
It is a very “professional” episode of the Week in WordPress.
