YouTube Pushing Anonymous Commenters to Name Themselves

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:24 PM EDT
In an effort to curb inappropriate content, YouTube is pushing notorious commenters to name themselves.

Try to comment on a video today and a window will pop up urging you to using your full name. Say yes and it will sign you in with the name attached to your Google account. Say no, and a second pop up appears asking to explain why you don't want to be named.

You can choose from a list of reasons, for example, your username is a business or product.

Google offers to help you review your YouTube content before your real name is displayed. It also makes clear that you can switch back to you username at anytime.

We will have to wait to see whether users switch to their real names, but the move is a step toward cleaning up the site. YouTube Pushing Anonymous Commenters to Name Themselves
