Tips to Manage and Maximize Your Youtube Account


After you sign up for your Youtube account you can begin to manage your Youtube account settings. These Youtube account settings include customizing your viewing experience and changing privacy settings to control how much information other people can see about your Youtube account.

1. Overview of Your Youtube Account

The overview of your Youtube account provides all kinds of information about your activity on Youtube. This Youtube account overview includes links to manage your videos, edit your video channel, connect with your Youtube network and more. The Youtube account overview is sort of like a control board that you can use to manage your Youtube use.

2. Adjust Your Youtube Account Profile

Your Youtube account profile contains personal information such as your profile picture, name, age, company, interests and more. By filling in these details of your Youtube account, you'll let other Youtube users know more about who you are. You also have the option of leaving the profile details of your Youtube account blank if you don't want others to know that information.

3. Change Your Youtube Account Playback Setup

This option is most useful to Youtube account holders with slower internet connections. You can change the settings to control whether or not you can watch high-quality videos with your Youtube account.

You can also choose whether or not to view captions or annotations with your YouTube videos.

The Youtube account email options form is where you can change your email address on file with Youtube. You can also control how often and under what circumstances Youtube can communicate with you.

5. Youtube Account Privacy Settings

The information in your Youtube account can be controlled through privacy settings. You can make it easy or difficult for others to find your Youtube account, as well as control whether your Youtube account activity is visible to others, and what kind of advertisments Youtube will put in the videos you're watching.

6. Share Activity From Your YouTube Account

You can connect your YouTube account with other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, so your friends and followers are automatically updated when you upload or favorite a video.
