Is this the radical change Google's been talking about?

    Well i guess everyone now will be making google+ accounts. SEO is doomed, what will be the point of making everything for months where some stupid profiles will be on first positions.

    Bing rules :))

    Just turn it off although the average Joe might not even know they can do that. I presume G know what they're doing but I can only see this driving people away.

    The good news is that google+ really is failing to expand beyond a techie user base.

    Google panda? - Ok, great. Even fair
    Blanking refferers from google searches? - WTF, Google f**cks with my analytics.
    Google+ on top of searches? - We created a Monster.

    Guys, this will fail.... it is a HORRIBLE idea. Why do I want to see crap from facebook dragged into my search results? Do we need more random cat pics to pop up on page 1? Plus the privacy concerns... no this will be yet ANOTHER unused tab in google that nobody cares about.

    Wow, this makes Google worse.

    I know everyone loves it, but social media actually sucks.

    I believe it will be a miserable failure. Google+ is just not catching on. Even if it does, I am already seeing ways that this could be gamed hard.

    For those of you who STILL think or believe that g00gal plays fair, this should be your final wake up call. This g00gal plus thingy is all about G attempting to take over the Internet space dominated by Facebook. Their game plan is to supplant Facebook = at all costs! Next up is Twitter, LOL.

    This move by g00gal reminds me of the movie, "The Hunt For Red October." There was a scene in the movie in which the Russian submarine commander attempted to destroy the Red October. During this game of underwater chicken, the Russian sub commander was outwitted. Right before the torpedo hit his submarine, his 2nd in command turned to him and said, "You arrogant ass, you killed us all!"

    g00gal's attempt to overtake the social sphere is pure monopoly arrogance in action. They are conducting themselves the same AT&T did before the forced deregulation.
    Personally, I believe their dream to overtake FB will eventually peter out simply because they are competing with a behemoth in Facebook.

    Interestingly, right now, all of these companies are attempting to take over our virtual properties by placing their "BRANDING" on our web properties and not paying us a dime for the privilege. Think about it, when you place Facebook, Twitter, +1, etc., on your website, you are advertsing for these companies and they are not paying you a friggin! That's why I'm sticking it to g00gal every opportunity I get.
