    Preliminary operation

    Before I can explain you in detail how to comment on youtube, it will be useful to know that to do this you need to have a channel on the famous Google video sharing and viewing platform.

    If you don't have one yet, connect to the YouTube site, click the button Log in at the top right and, on the screen Scegli an account, select yours Google account, then enter the password in the field Enter your password e pulsing sul pulsating Log in.



    If you've never created a Google account before, on the Scegli an account select the item Use an altro account e fai clic sull'opzione Create account. Now, enter your details in the fields Your name, Last name, Your email e Password e pulsing sul pulsating NEXT, then specify yours date of birth and yours sex and click on the button NEXT. Then affix the check marks required to accept the terms of service and the privacy policy and press the buttons Create account e Confirmation to create your Google account. To learn more, you can read my guide on how to create Google accounts.

    You are now ready to post a comment on YouTube. However, I have to make a further premise regarding the name displayed next to your comment. In fact, leaving a comment without first creating a YouTube channel, one will automatically be created using your name and your surname: if you want to use a different name, you must first create your YouTube channel.

    Then click on yours photo in alto a destra (or sull'icona dell 'little man if you have not yet customized your Google account), select the item My channel from the menu and, in the new open page, click on the option Use a company name or another type. Now, enter your channel name in the field Nome dell'account of the brand e pulsing sul pulsating Crea.



    Although in the future it is possible to change the name on YouTube as I explained to you in my in-depth guide, I suggest you take five minutes to carefully choose the name to associate with your channel.

    Comment on a video on YouTube

    It's possible comment on a video on YouTube both from smartphones and tablets and from computers. In the first case it is necessary to download the application of the famous Google video sharing service, available for Android and iOS devices.

    After downloading the YouTube app from your device's store, launch it and, if you have a device equipped with Android, tap on yours photo at the top right and make sure you are logged in with the Google account with which you intend to leave comments on YouTube. If not, tap yours photo, select the option Change account and choose the Google account of your interest from the list available on the screen Account (if the account of your interest is not visible, press the button + and add it).

    I invented a iPhone or iPad, fai tap sull'icona dell 'little man at the top right, press the button Log in and select theGoogle account associated with your YouTube channel to access. Now, regardless of the device in use, locate the video to comment and tap on its preview image to access the player and sharing tools.

To proceed, locate the message you want to reply to, tap on the icon speech bubble, enter your comment in the field Add a public response and presses the icon ofpaper airplane to post the answer.

In the newly opened page, you can view the box Main messages present on the right: enter, then, your comment in the field write something and click on thepaper airplane to send the message.
