A major change is incoming YouTube’s way! In its latest update, YouTube has revealed that it is planning to ditch some of its built-in sharing features. Starting later this month, the built-in sharing options for Twitter and other social networks will be removed from YouTube.

It might come off as really unfortunate – The whole built-in sharing tool kill-spree – Since this handy feature has always been for quick, immediate respite for YouTubers! Again, available for years now, this sudden elimination of such tools will be a harbinger of distress for some video-content creators, quite acquainted with the easy-to-go tool.

This update was released by a Google employee, serving in the YouTube sect and is dubbed as Jordan. According to him, after January 31st, the ability to share the YouTube content automatically to Twitter and Google+ will be completely ruled out for all users. However, the options to add social media links to your channel banner or sharing from video page will remain unaffected.

The content already shared over Twitter will not be removed. To clarify further on this issue, one may still share videos directly over their social media networks via the Share button on YouTube. They can see an option to share, right after they successfully upload a new video. Additionally, the ability to add social media links to the banner will also remain unaffected.

After January 31st, the ability to automatically post your YouTube Activity on Twitter and Google+ will no longer be available. You can still share videos on social networks directly from YouTube via the Share button. Creators will also see an option to Share on social networks/platforms right after they successfully upload a new video. – Jordan, Google Employee, Team YouTube

A Eulogy to Twitter, Google+ and Many More!

On removing Twitter and Google+, Jordan went on to say that social sharing becomes more effective when the message is customized, or strung along with @mentions to take maximum advantage of social-media features. This provides a better experience to both the creators as well as their followers, as opposed to automatically generated posts.

YouTube has a slate of reputation, blotched and wiped clean, again and again. Exemplified much with the addition of numerous useful features but then removing it again, apparently for absolutely no reason.

YouTube has pulled out the functionality of its video credits feature as well. Video credits were available for a long time now. This comes handy for creators to give a quick shout-out for everyone involved with the video creation. YouTube, however, decided to pull off the feature. When interrogated, YouTube justified its actions by saying that the uncalled-for removal was due to the fact that the feature wasn’t used too widely. Apparently, this YouTube video credits feature will be entirely going off the space on January 31st this year.

With the automated sharing tool de-activated, uploading and arraying videos in bulk has hit a stonewall. Enabling automatic share of posts to social media sites has been effective in a way that it decreases the time taken. Again, having said about the customization thing, Youtube is certainly encouraging personal posts and shares.

YouTube, indicating new changes incoming this way, links a blog post on how videos can be shared manually, if not automatically.

With these changes put into effect, one thing that’s yet to be seen is how effective this heads-up will be for content creators as well as their followers!
