Link to a YouTube Comment

If you happen to find a YouTube comment that's really interesting and you want to share it with other people, mouse over the comment, click on the "Share" button and copy the link.


Each YouTube comment has a permalink, but it's not easy to notice that the comment is displayed below the video in a special section titled "Linked Comment".


You could also use this feature to annotate a video before sharing it with your friends. Post a comment, copy the link and use it to highlight your comment.

  2. I have to say, I noticed this a while ago and thought it was a dumb idea. I think we'll now see more and more "First!" comments because now those idiots will be able to link to their "First!" comments.

    Ugh! Why fix the problems YouTube is having when you can release "features" like this?
