In 2011 before Edward Snowden (my blog) Google began to integrate google with you tube (my blog) with Vic Gundotras (my blog) leading the charge – now some efficiency is good but i was not joining g+ as i had a youtube account which was little used.
So i declined and youtube lost my monkey eyeballs – lets face facts most content there does not need an account. Eventually Vic Gundotras left and my desire to either comment (my blog) or post has not been a bucket list item.
Accounts are good when addresses and payment details are needed, however once i create an account i seek a value from it i derive no value for me with a g+ account or the older youtube account. That might explain why i dont buy printer ink from one firm, but from another now.
An account might attribute loyalty ‘convenience’ and other marketing words but i dont see why i should explain to a hr staffer why i wrote a comment about a zoo, etc three years ago that google decided to attribute to me with a g+ account.
I was right.
