Share2Steem (S2S) is a bridge that links mainstream social media platforms that you've been using over the past few years like Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Twitch and Medium (Beta). More services will be added over the period by the team (@sebbbl and @algo.coder)
It allows your posts in the respective platform to be cross-posted automatically into the Steem Blockchain with the proper setup. This post is focusing on setting up Youtube to Share2Steem.
