"Google announced another integration: your Google+ profile PLUS YouTube AND you can keep your channel name."
I've already done this. It makes sense if you have the right set-up with your YouTube channels. ~ Deb
Excerpt, from TNW:
You can still keep your channel name. If you prefer to market your own personal brand, then Google is urging you to switch to the Google+ one.
If you don’t want a full name on your channel, in the coming weeks, Google+ page (as opposed to a profile) will have that as a new feature is coming “in the coming weeks.”
Also coming will be
Advanced Google+ page management features that let up to 50 people manage a single Google+ page, or ... A single person will be able to manage up to 50 Google+ pages, which will all supposedly nicely work with YouTube channels linked to Google+ pages.
Thanks to The Next Web, TNW. Full article here.

"This review of Jetpack got me over my doldrums and disaffected non-blogging status with my WordPress website. It's a very handy and FREE set of tools!"
I've implemented the social media integration already via my self-hosted Wordpress site: REVELN.com. This social media share plug-in element IN PARTICULAR is EASY. Finally, Wordpress!
Below is the #1 reason from the Jetpack review on why Wordpress users will want to take a look at this cool plugin pack.
1. Easy to Install, Setup, and Learn
Jetpack could not be easier to install and set up, considering how many different benefits it provides.
To install it, just go to Plugins –> Add New and then type “jetpack” into the search box. It’ll be the first result.
Hit “Install Now” and you’re ready to go (unless you need to create a WordPress.com account, which is necessary so you can link it with your blog and Jetpack).
Once you’ve got the plugin activated, it will create its own dashboard nav bar menu section right at the top.
If you want to see the social media I now am using, thanks to JetPack, which made it EASY, go to THIS blog post, "Open Space on Speed: Social Business with the Coaches, Results! Video" and scroll down to the bottom.
Note the social media icons and ease with which you can comment and share! (And DO feel free to share with comments! :-)
Enjoy. There's something there for just about everyone, it seems.

Ask anyone to name the most popular social media tools used by students, and it’s a safe bet everybody could name the top two: Facebook and Twitter.
But those are far from the only online applications making inroads. As administrators warm to engaging students through social media, the list of potential resources at their disposal grows longer by the day.
Facebook and Twitter are the obvious choices. But there are other options- Tumblr, YouTube and Google+, to name three.
Of course, if naming the latest social media tools seems tough, learning how to use them all is harder still. In an attempt to shorten the learning curve, Flowtown and Column Five published this Social Media Cheat Sheet for your reference...
