How to Search for YouTube Users by Emailby Richard Bashara
YouTube and Google now use Google+ profiles, if a user wishes to do so, making it simple to find someone by his or her email address. These profiles showcase a user’s real name and provide a news feed similar to Facebook or Twitter. Searching for a user's email address can uncover YouTube videos he or she has watched, liked or uploaded.
Open Google, and perform a search for the email address you want to find.
Click on that user’s Google+ profile from the search results page.
Click on “YouTube” from that user’s Google+ profile to be taken to his or her YouTube profile. You will still see some of the navigation from Google+ above that user’s YouTube profile information.
- YouTube users who upload more than two videos will be indexed in Google. You can try performing a search for the name of the video or the username.
- You can also add “profile?user=USERNAME” without the quotes to the end of the YouTube URL. Change “USERNAME” to that user’s name, and you should be able to go directly to his or her profile.
