Over the next few day, YouTube will be rolling out a ability to let users use their Google name as their identity on YouTube, by linking their Google+ profile with their Channel.
In the coming weeks “we’ll launch the option to link your channel with a Google+ page, which will allow you to use your channel name (even with spaces in it!) as your Google identity,” google blogged.
“You may have seen a prompt like the one below inviting you to use your Google identity on YouTube. If you haven’t, and you can opt in right now using your account settings,” google stated. Or you can keep your channel name!
“If you unify your YouTube identity with Google+, it’ll be easier for your audience to find and connect with you on YouTube, Google, and across the web, and it will help you build your brand across all of Google’s products,” explains Google.
“While using a full name from a Google+ profile might work well for a creator who wants to build their brand as an individual, this simply doesn’t work if you don’t want a full name on your channel. Instead, you should create a Google+ page (as opposed to a profile) with that name,” google added.
And, “the advanced Google+ page management features that enable up to 50 people manage a single Google+ page, or a single person to manage up to 50 Google+ pages, will also work for channels that are linked with Google+ pages,” google added.
