YouTube: No More Connected Account to Facebook

Youtube creators can no longer automatically post their content to Facebook via a ‘connected account’ integration between the two services.

Youtube to Creators: No More ‘Connected Account’ Option.

Any long-term effects of this move, apparently made by Google/Youtube, have yet to be determined, but for those content creators who rely on the ability to auto-share their content to their facebook page or timeline could see a silent hit to their Facebook video engagement from their Youtube channel.  We say “silent” since this disconnect was not announced.

The silver lining may be that this might be a good time to test out posting videos on Facebook itself.  For those who may not have noticed, the video wars are heating up between Google, the owner of Youtube, and the folks over at Facebook.
