The Google-owned firm made the announcement during the search engine giant's I/O conference, where representatives acknowledged that abuse and poor grammar is rife among its users.
Dror Shimshowitz, YouTube head of products, said that "comments are kind of the Wild West of video", adding that enhancements to the website's community features are incoming.
"We're working on some improvements to the comment system, so hopefully we'll have an update on that in the next few months," he explained.
TechRadar speculates that the new measures could include denying posters the right to anonymity by adding Google+ integration to the comments system.
YouTube was founded by former PayPal employees Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim in February 2005, and has been under Google ownership since November 2006.
The site boasts more than 800 million worldwide users, who watch a combined total of more than 3 billion hours of video each month.
