Google has announced a change coming to the way Google+ and YouTube will interact with commenting. The two most noticeable changes include:
  • Comments posted on YouTube will now appear only on YouTube and not on Google+. Comments posted on Google+ will now only appear on Google+ and not on YouTube. The "Also share on Google+" option is being removed from the YouTube interface.
  • Individuals will no longer have the ability to restrict comments made on YouTube to be viewable only in their domain. A new warning will appear alerting users that their comments will be public. 
These changes will not impact any existing comments that have already been shared to Google+ or have been shared privately. For more information, see Upcoming Changes to commenting behavior on YouTube for Google Apps customers
