YouTube begins rolling out its new Google+ commenting system to individual video pages

YouTube is rolling out its new commenting platform this week. Previously announced in September and limited to channel pages, the new feature integrates features from Google+ while also sorting comments based on relevancy rather than date order.

As a refresher, the new system enables anyone to comment, but utilizes Google+ as its identity database. If you’re logged into your Google account, it will surface comments from those you’re connected to and match a specific set of criteria. In addition, when you share a video to your Google+ page, it will link back to the original YouTube video page.
