is getting better integrated with Google+: Starting today, Google+ users can create a new YouTube channel with their existing Google+ profile name and photo. This will create a seamless identity across the two platforms.
Users can already share videos they watch on YouTube with their Google+ friends and within Google+ Hangouts. Users can also see which video their Google+ friends are viewing directly from YouTube.
The new Google+-linked YouTube channel feature is only available to users who do not already have a YouTube channel. If, like most long-time YouTube users, you already have your own channel, YouTube says to “stay tuned.” We hope that means that you’ll eventually be able to link or associate your existing channel and Google+ account.
