Business Review USA has taken screenshots of what looks like a leak of Google’s new design for YouTube.
Art Director Freddie Pierce noticed the updates, which point towards an enhanced social media experience throughout.
The inclusion of Google+ is wholly expected, since Google is integrating this into all of its services bit by bit in an attempt to make the platform more sticky. First Google Music, now video to provide one central dashboard.
A Facebook tab allows users to connect their profiles to YouTube, making personalised recommendations available - something marketers, advertisers, and viewers could all benefit from.
Business Review USA predicted that once new users become engaged to the YouTube experience, via potential Facebook login, then Google has the opportunity to flip the tables and introduce those same users to Google+.
Offering special customisable options to Google+ users on YouTube could play to their overall advantage as well."
