YouTube Introduces Comments Page After Users Complain

YouTube rolled out a Comments Page in response to outrage over its comment system introduced in September.

YouTube is making it a little easier to manage comments. When YouTube began requiring all users to have a Google+ account to comment on videos, comment notifications moved from the YouTube Inbox to a Google+ notification page. But due to user outrage, the company has implemented a Comments Page that enables YouTube video creators to view, moderate and respond to all their comments in one place.

 

For now, users are required to click over to the video page and reply to comments posted, but YouTube said new features, including inline replying and expanding all replies directly on the Comments Page, will be available soon.
