The first thing Vimeo users will notice is that they can now automatically link their Vimeo account to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn and Google+ accounts. According to Pile:
“Previously, connecting to Facebook and Twitter only published your likes. Now you can choose granular share settings for a whole plethora of actions including uploads, likes, comments, people you follow, adding videos to groups and channels, and more. On Facebook, you can even choose to publish to a Facebook page instead of your news feed.”
Vimeo also now allows for Facebook login which means users no longer need to connect via their Vimeo credentials during the sign in process. Facebook connect features have become commonplace for many web properties but are just now catching on at Vimeo.
The final new social feature is the ability to attribute videos to a users Google+ account which in turn should help with video SEO placement capabilities via Google.com.
