google+ now obligatory for youtube users

Unread postAuthor: jackssmirkingrevenge » Wed Nov 06, 2013 9:35 pm

Not strictly related to spudfiles but most people here host on youtube.

http://www.googleplusdaily.com/2013/11/ ... oogle.html

Boooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

A very thinly veiled move to foist the google+ account few people actually want on the general population. They claim it is to filter out the trolls and spam and "turn comments into conversations". Right.

Edit: I just noticed Spudfiles gives us the options of sharing posts on google+! and also... tumblr? What self respecting spudfiler has a tumblr account?

Until now you could opt out and still continue using youtube regularly. The way it is now, the only way to comment is through google+.

This new merging doesn't bug me at all. The sites are still free to use, unless you want premium accounts.... :D

Can't tell you how important it is to host with nobody. I lost a lot of video and images hosting with sites that later went down without a whole lot of warning (putfile, etc.). Obviously use them to distribute your content, but keep the originals backed up and local. :wink:

Perhaps I misused the term "host"....I use these services as a convenience for posting that which I choose to share and do maintain the original and a backup. :wink:

I see you've added me there :P it's better than facebook because no one is there hehe



No programs huh?

:roll:

Google wants all your data online.

I see how this can be convenient, but it puts all your data in the hands of a faceless conglomerate.

It's kind of a new thought, but not strictly a good one.

This is why I encourage users to upload their pics to the SpudFiles forums since they won't turn into dead links :D unfortunately we've lost several pieces of good data from old creations due to things disappearing from photobuckets and such.

Hehe... what are the chances of Mario doing that?

I wonder if enough disgruntled users will force a u-turn. Or more likely, people will just grudgingly accept it and forget about it.
