Changes will be coming soon to GOOGLE+
Google announced changes for Google+ over the next few months as it restructures the social network. They will focus on two items: Streams and photos. Previously, many tasks within Google productsrequired a Google+ profile, but that won’t be the case in the future.
“People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier,” Bradley Horowitz, Google’s VP, wrote in a blog post. “But we’ve also heard that it doesn’t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use.”
With these changes, people who don’t use Google+ will not need a public profile to use other Google products.
The first platform to change will be YouTube, which previously required users to have a Google+ account to comment, share, or upload videos on the site. Starting today, users will only need a Google account to engage on YouTube. Comments made on YouTube will not appear on Google+.
