Do you think Google's decision to link Google+ account IDs with Play comments is a good one?
kreiley 1 year ago
I'm down with encouraging a modicum of civility on the internet. Totally. And there are quite a few post in the comments of Google Play that I would consider inappropriate for public discourse. Google's answer is to link users Google+ with Google Play, so that comments show their user identity and photo. I'm a little conflicted on this. While I support civility, I don't necessarily want my identity publicly linked directly with apps that I use, and it makes me less likely to comment. At the same time, what else can Google do to encourage people to act like decent human beings? I just don't like the feeling that there is a constant chipping away at my privacy and relative anonymity. How do other people feel about this? Did Google make the right call?
