Google+ @ 06:33 pm

They canned my account. Not that I used it much anyway. But I don't agree with their name policy. I don't mind giving Google my RL info, but I don't want it posted on their site for all to see.

you'd think they could at least provide an option of at least when you open an account to have:

Name:
Known as:

and select on your public profile which you'd prefer to have shown.

If someone I know could have her name listed as "frek Queen" or something ridiculous like thar (I forget now but it was stupid), somehow I don't think Facebook actually bothers checking anymore.

Exactly! Google wants the name? Not an issue. Google wants me to give it to every asshat on the internet or let HR departments snoop around looking for dirt? Not no but F no.

Sadly, I have picked up a couple of stalkers in my life. Give the whole world my legal name and location? Not hardly. No one should have to give everyone their personal information just to use a service. I have a FB account under a nom de guerre, so far I haven't been banned.

Frankly, I was hoping for more from Google.

There's a reason I stay away from that kind of social media!

No Facebook, twitter, google+.. I like control over who knows me and who does not... not to mention that really... do people /HAVE/ to know what I'm doing every single freaking minute of the day? lol

Well that kinda sucks, I just joined it (after defying FB for years) and was looking to add some people.

I don't mind it being linked to my RL identity since that's sort of why I joined, but I can see why someone would prefer to keep their privacy would have a problem with that. That google don't get this is stupid, but meh.

Oh hell, they've banned people's REAL NAMES too, thinking they were fake. Photographer I watch on DA by name of Nate Zemen got banned for his name. It's stupid.

My boyfriend joined because he has a tech job and has to stay up on that sort of thing. I haven't bothered because I'm not impressed by what I've heard.
