How to Link YouTube and Google+ Pages, Multi Admin Management Now Possible

It was a long time ago that we discussed how to link your YouTube channel to a Google+ profile, and not long after that, the future capabilities to have multiple "YouTube managers" who can run your channel page without giving out your personal login information.  Rejoice, everyone, linking your Google+ page to your YouTube channel is finally here, or at the very least, it's being rolled out.

Your public YouTube videos will appear on both the channel and the page, and the multi-user and multi-admin capabilities for Google+ pages are now live for YouTube channels so that you can have multiple users uploading and managing videos on your channel.  Let's show some pictures.

Google Plus Business Page Integration with YouTube Channels

This new capability allows you to "showcase" your YouTube channel on a Google+ page.  The differences between a profile and a page are shown here, but essentially, pages are for organizations and profiles are for individuals.  Multi-admin user capabilities have been around for Google+ pages for awhile, but it still didn't have integration to YouTube.  Now it does.
