Be aware of GOOGLE PLUS

11 replies 228 views Edited Sep 26, 2012

If you use google plus and aren't aware, they display your name now on everything you post especially Youtube, instead of your screen name.  Do not install google plus at all, even if it automatically updates it for you on your google account. You can delete google plus and its content.  Be careful when do so, because you also have the option to delete your google account.  GOOGLE PLUS, will also over ride your Youtube, screen name.  DO NOT ACCEPT GOOGLE PLUS!!!

Yes, I accidently deleted my orignal accoutn I had on youtube because of this.  I didn't think, it would allow a fake name but just be careful.  

 

Thanks for the advice about the signature card, I will look into it later.  Got errands to do in a bit 

 

Google Plus, will also show up on your phone and if you post something using google plus, your real name will appear at the comment, which complete bull.  

 

I have an awesome GPS on my phone and you comment on places and business.  Few months, I saw my name and not my screen name. I deleted everything and it took it off at least after but lost my account.  

 

A lot of people don't like google plus.  I don't see the point either.

I fail to see the point in this.

"I used my real name for my Google account and it shows my REAL name on there!"

Sorry, but this seems incredibly obvious and redundant.

 

This is like complaining that you used your real name in your PSN ID on PS3 and then not liking that it also shows it when posting here on the PS community forums. Of course if you make a Google account under your real name and then use that for G+ and YouTube it will continue to use your real name... You do not absolutely *need* to link your G+ with your YouTube and Android devices, etc. They ask if you want to link them.

 

No offense but it is your fault for linking them together under your real name. Of course there are people out there who don't like G+ or prefer not to use it. That is their opinion and that's fine, but don't set something up how you didn't want to set it up and then complain about it online.

I don't mind using my real name on PS3 but using  it  on google plus, your real name will post on youtube comnents and everywhere else that you post.  I deleted Google plus, and just letting others aware of the changes.  I wasn't aware of the option because it did an automatic update and I took it off.  This is my opinion about Google plus, so that's fine. When replying to a comment on youtube  using Google plus, I wouldn't want my real name showing.  It also will display on your GPS when comments on your places. Again, I enjoy my screen on my PS3 but Google plus, no need for it and just letting others know.

If you use your real name anyway, this won't matter.

I don't see the problem with it posting your name on Youtube, unless it shows other personal information is just like facebook no? The GPS thing is another thing thoug.
