YouTube co-founder not happy with site's new commenting system

By Owen Weldon     Nov 11, 2013 in World
Jawed Karim, the co-founder of YouTube, joined the scores of people slamming Google's changes to the site, which now enforces the use of the Google+ social networking site.
According to The Guardian, Karim has not posted anything to his YouTube page in eight years, but last week he decided to update it. The second post he has ever made was directed at Google's changes to YouTube's commenting system.
According to Venture Beat, Karim's post said "why the f**k do I need a Google+ account to comment on a video?" Google announced back in September that users would need a Google+ account in order to comment on videos.
According to Canoe, many YouTube users are not pleased with the changes, and many videos have been bombarded by people criticizing the new style of commenting.
There is also a petition asking Google to reverse the changes, and in one single day it has garnered more than 40,000 signatures.
