New YouTube Comments System Switches Ranking And Incorporates Google+

| Thursday, November 7th, 2013

The newest feature you’ll see overhauled next time you sign into YouTube is the site’s comment system, which YouTube says it has significantly improved. YouTube has begun to change the way it ranks comments, switching from a system based primarily on chronology to one that focuses on comments you’re more likely to care about.

We told you recently that better commenting is coming to YouTube. Starting this week, when you’re watching a video on YouTube, you’ll see comments sorted by people you care about first. If you post videos on your channel, you also have more tools to moderate welcome and unwelcome conversations. This way, YouTube comments will become conversations that matter to you.

Now comments will be more incorporated with Google+, giving you the ability to tag your Google+ friends in comments as well as see their comments from ranked at the top when they posted on a video you’re watching. YouTube will also start to rank popular channels higher in the comments, so that more popular YouTubers have their comments more prominently displayed.

Here are some more features included in the new changes:
