YouTube has angered a lot of people lately with their forced Google+ comment update and their overly-aggressive copyright sweep. Today, they took a step toward getting back in the good graces by launching live events for (almost) every account.
Right now you’re probably saying to yourself. . . wait. . I thought YouTube already had live events. And you’d be correct-ish.
In the past, YouTube allowed favored channel owners to run live events. Many of these were tied to big concerts, video game releases and sports. You could also host a live event on Google Hangouts which would automatically show up on YouTube.
