YouTube has revamped its comment management system after facing barrage of criticism from users as well as from one of its co-founder.

The new feature gives users a comment management page which lets users to make comment, respond, and moderate comments in one place.

YouTube has revamped the comment feature after it faced criticism for the new feature added last November, which changed the way users make comment on videos.

Changes effected during last November also removed an earlier feature which allowed comment management in the YouTube inbox.

YouTube engineer Patrick Doyle wrote in a blog post, "Many of you have told us that you use your YouTube Inbox to manage comments."

"With the new commenting system moving comment notices to alerts, removing this feature was, well, a bummer," Doyle added.

"Staying connected with your audience is critical on YouTube, so we fast-tracked the development of a new comment management page that lets you see, respond to and moderate your comments all in one place."

YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim criticised on the site, joining other users slamming Google's modifications to video site's comment section that requires using its Google+ social network.

Karim commented: "why the f**k do i need a google+ account to comment on a video?"
