Google+ seriously downgraded…
I never liked G+ (UI, Google/privacy etc.) but stayed to watch and learn. I closed my account when they started forcing it down my throat (making it login for YouTube comments etc). I still have to have accounts on it (for Google Play, Hangouts etc) but they are dummy accounts, just stubs. Sorry if that confuses, but you can blame Google’s greed trampling over user interests.
It seems outsiders weren’t the only ones unhappy with this, and we may see some of that rolled back. More in the article.
Either way, G+ is seriously damaged and on the way out. Jeeze this is BIG! And timed to coincide with awareness growing about decentralised internet through #Bitcloud, #MaidSafe and others. Perhect!
