The number of users who've registered themselves on Google+ is going to take a minor hit. According to the reports, Google has banned users on their social networking service and there are obviously some irritated users who’ve been given a clear indication as to why this has happened. It’s believed that Google is deleting accounts of those users who aren’t using their original names, instead are registered on the server using fake aliases. According to ZDNet, Limor Fried who also goes by alias Ladyada had her account blocked. Turns out, she appeared on the cover of Wired magazine. Her account seems to have returned suspiciously. Other users are unlikely to get such a treatment.
Google Plus, Minus Some Users
It’s not just the use of real names that’s been posing a problem. There’s bound to be confusion if users have two accounts, one a standard Gmail account and a separate Google+ signed in at the same time. Another one of the banned Google+ users and ex-Google employee Kirrily “Skud” Robert has put up a Google Docs form to compile a list of other blocked Google+ users. You can find that form here.
One thing’s for sure, users can’t choose to be anonymous on social networking services such as Google+.
