A quick post to show you how to remove your Google Plus icon from your YouTube channel cover photo. Turns out its actually very simple.
While logged into your YouTube account “http://youtube.com/user/YOURUSERNAME” click the about link, below your cover image.
If you hover over the Google Plus icon on the right you will see an edit icon appear. Click the edit icon.
From here you can turn off the option “Overlay linked G+ page on channel art”
That’s all. Nice and simple.
