Back in September, Google announced a big change to YouTube’s commenting system by requiring users to have a Google+ account to comment on a video. The idea was to
force users to use Google+ discourage openly abusive comments.
Among the many users who are angry at this change is YouTube cofounder Jawed Karim, who sold the site to Google in 2006 (and became a millionaire in the process).
Eight years after uploading the first ever video on YouTube, Karim has posted this on his channel: “why the fuck do i need a google+ account to comment on a video?”
