First off what a Brony Analysis? A Brony Analysis is a person who loves Friendship is magic, that loves reviewing, talking, and analyzing Friendship is magic, or any other favorite movie or show!
Personally I can't see why someone didn't already make a special Google + group for their favorite Brony Analysis?
Yes, Youtube is a good spot to get noticed, but as time goes on, people also have been getting themselves noticed on Google+!
Not only that, but if your account on Youtube goes, then so does your Google+ account, because they're both connected with each other!
So again the most logical step forward is to focus on making your own group on Google+, that way you can keep track of your data, without losing any of it!
But then you ask, what about the custom video icon? To that I say, you don't need it, people can still have fun watching your work, even if the icon is moving!
Not only that, but I also love the idea of having people that you trust watch over your stuff, and your group!
What do any of you think?
