?Everything in its right place,? this was the blog title posted by Bradley Horowitz of Google. And now that Google+ has been removed from YouTube, it?s now definitely in its right place. That?s right, Google+ plus has been removed from YouTube and instead users can simply use individual Google accounts.

?People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier,? explained by Google?s Vice President of Streams, Photos, and Sharing in a blog. ?But we?ve also heard that it doesn?t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all other Google products you use,

?So in the coming months, a Google account will be all you?ll need to share content, communicate with contacts, create a YouTube channel and more, all across Google,? he added. This move apparently spread across social media and caused for a celebration among twitter users.

The Verge?reported that the decision came several months after Google?stopped forcing new users to create accounts?under its social network, which has failed to become the Facebook and Twitter competitor Mountain View once hoped it would be.

According to Wall Street Journal, Google launched Google+ seeking to create a big social network with a billion or more people updating their status, posting photos and keeping in touch with friends, family and colleagues.?It was created to become a rival for giant social media networks. But the move created hysteria in the social media community and proved to be?wrong.

“We decided it’s time to fix this, not only in YouTube, but across a user’s entire experience at Google. We want to formally retire the notion that a Google+ membership is required for anything at Google? other than using Google+ itself,” Horowitz said on his Google+ profile.
