YouTube Cofounder unhappy about New Changes by Google on Youtube

YouTube Cofounder Jawed Karim is unhappy about the policy of google on youtube
of needing a Google plus account for commenting on youtube.It is his second ever post
on youtube after the very first video on youtube on April 23rd 2005.It is not just him
who is angry at this new change by Youtube.Many users have already critized this policy
through  ASCII art.

The company argues that this is necessary to personalise comment sections for each viewer: "You’ll see posts at the top of the list from the video’s creator, popular personalities, engaged discussions about the video, and people in your Google+ Circles," Google explained in a blogpost.

Karim was working at PayPal in 2005 when he met Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, the other co-founders of the company. But he took a back seat to the growing venture, instead enrolling in Stanford University as a computer science graduate student while acting as an advisor to the site. When YouTube was acquired by Google in 2007, Karim's payoff was worth around $65m.
