Is it just me or has the "likes" bar turned from green to blue?

I noticed it as well..my guess would be to match the G+ favicon, as some random user in some random forum puts it.

Not that again....BAD CHAZ.

My opinion on this whole thing is that it's really, really stupid. I've managed to keep my G+ account away from my YouTube account, but now I have five or six G+ accounts for it somehow that are all giving me notifications whenever someone replies to me. Plus, I honestly don't care what my friends watch on YouTube, or what people I don't know that are in my circles for some reason watch on YouTube, or what celebrities watch on YouTube and what they say and G+ was a stupid idea anyway. And now they've made it worse by taking a perfectly good thing and stabbing it with a horrendously stupid thing.
I enjoy being anonymous on the internet, but if things want me to splash my name over everything I do then I'll have to change my Gmail name to something stupid again, like 'Turtle Square' (which used to be my name until I changed it to my actual one before G+ came into being.). And now G+ doesn't even let you have stupid fake names because they want everyone to be stalked by the NSA. Thanks, Google.

So now you need a Google+ account to sign up for YouTube, eh? A sneaky move on Google's part... =/

In my case, I don't see myself ever having a YouTube account, since I don't have any reason to post videos of anything online... and commenting on YouTube videos has always seemed useless to me anyway--I don't even read them!--so to me personally, this whole matter is pretty unimportant. However, with Google taking over everything these days, I'm almost afraid to see what our everyday lives will be like in 5 years!

I'm pretty sure their plan is to make video access pay-for if you don't have a free account. That would make the most sense if their goal is to get people to join.

I'm pretty sure every generation has said that about the future. The future is an unknown, thus often feared, leading to distrust/dislike of new things. Sometimes it's irrational (ex: jazz being considered lewd, then people from the jazz age considering rock and roll as the new bad) and sometimes it's justified (ex: weapons of war). Technology will always be a tool with positive and negative consequences (ex: the cell phone: great for contacting support in emergencies, or just for chatting; chatting at the wrong time, like while operating heavy machinery, can lead to emergencies). Usually whatever shines the brightest tends to take off. But the good thing about the free market is that if the people dislike what Google is doing, they can take their business elsewhere and use/make something better, forcing Google to perhaps take a step back.
