Enhancing YouTube Comments

Wednesday, 11 April 2012

⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

Just a quick post today to share a something I have been using for the last few months which has completely improved my experience of YouTube; Comment Snob by Chris Finke.

Comment Snob is a Google Chrome extension which simply filters user's comments against a set of rules to deem if a comment is probably spam, trolling or just simply written by a 13 year old with their finger on the SHIFT BUTTON. With these comments out of the way you are left in peace to enjoy comments left on a video.

There are plenty of rules built into it, and if you are handy with jQuery you can easily build your own.

You can grab the extension from the Google Chrome Store.

Share and enjoy!
