4. Now first check the option “Yes, allow a selected set of my activities to be viewable”. You have to decide what activities you want to share.

Check boxes next to activity names which you want to share on social media sites. For example, if you check the box next to “Like a video” then if you like any video on YouTube, it will be shared on your other networks automatically.

Tip: If you are a frequent user of YouTube who regularly likes, comments or uploads videos then don’t check these options as it could annoy your friends on other networks. You might just want to check the “Favorite a video” option.

5. Now, click on “Connect accounts” link present next to Facebook, Twitter and Reader. For example I clicked on “Connect accounts” next to Facebook.

    The feature may be useful but there is a disadvantage with YouTube integration. Whenever you favorite some video, it shows up in Twitter and since Twitter and FB is connected the same thing is shown on facebook. Looks odd sometimes :(

    thank you very much

    I have done this and it was working fine, now it will no longer post to Facebook, only to twitter and google+. I have to manually go in and share each video once it has published. I’ve tried disconnecting it and then reconnecting, etc, but am unable to check the share to facebook box when I’m uploading, the other two are already checked, thanks.
