Changes to using YouTube with Google+
In general, you don't need Google+ to use YouTube, including for uploading videos, commenting, or creating a channel. If you have a Google+ page or profile associated with your YouTube account, you can delete your Google+ profile, unless your channel has a verification badge.

You can now use Brand Accounts to manage many YouTube channels at once or manage one channel from multiple Google Accounts. Learn more about managing Brand Accounts for your business or brand.
Learn the basics of channel management:
