    How about links to where you read it? It sounds bullshit.

    Agreed, stop trying to spread rumours and actually provide sources to these places, and before posting it, look and see if they are reliable, if they are real and if they are effective.

    Comments are one of the best features about youtube and it gives people a chance to provide feedback to the video maker as well as express their feelings. There is no reason for removing the youtube commenting unless they are referring to reward giving.

    EDIT: If anything, youtube would be removing the likes and dislikes feature, its a weaker form of communication and after a few survey, they found that people are more likely to dislike videos than like them on youtube.

    lol !! That would be as good as saying, youtube is closing down. So seriously no rumors please. People already have options to turn off commenting if they want.

    If they did that, it would be a perfect opportunity for facebook to jump on integrating video and youtube would become a graveyard just like myspace.

    That would be stupid. Commenting is one of the main reasons why people watch YT videos in the first place, otherwise they would just search it up on a random website. Taking away that feature would just lose money on their part.

    It's not true. They wouldn't get rid of a feature as big as that! Where did you hear that from?

    Why they should close comments?

    Any logic reason for that?

    I don`t know where you read this but I can`t imagine it.

    I doubt he even read it anywhere to be honest, looking at his join date... Its a sure fire indicator that he is trying to get his post count up :(

    I doubt it, the new fashion on the internet are social networks. 10 years ago It was hard to think that people would upload pictures of their children, hobbies , partys like all the users do on facebook.

    Getting rid of comments in Youtube would become facebook and twitter into a stronger competitors. Many people use YT everyday and havenĀ“t upload even a single video , but do commenting. In fact, commenting is the social networking area of youtube.
