Weekly Update - September 3, 2016: New Google+, YouTube Monetization, Live streaming

This week was all about Google+ and YouTube (but not together, of course).

First off, the new Google+ is now the default web experience, with the option to switch back to Classic Google+ for the time being. To sweeten the deal there are several new features: images and links in comments, web notification center, and community moderators can now choose to hold posts for review.

Meanwhile, YouTube started notifying Partners with videos that are not “advertiser-friendly”. Despite the fact that this only affects the ability to monetize those videos videos, and the cited policies are well over a year old, YouTubers were upset by this “new” policy.

Also this week: YouTube Gaming turned one, Google Brand Accounts for YouTube and Google+ can have multiple owners, you can schedule in YouTube Live Stream Now, Twitter offers a monetization program, Snapseed got more editing tools, and more.
