No private profle = no use from me.

Actually regarding the article that you linked, all they will force you to show is your full name and gender. You can hide everything else. I dont really see this as an issue.

They said this is only during the beta, and no business profiles, applications, or ad systems are set up to steal your data yet anyways. You can choose who you wan't to share what with also.

Not only that, but you can always make up a... *drum roll* FAKE NAME! =O

/applauds

But really, if you are that uptight about privacy then really you must have some pretty limited online sites that you register to, or you're hiding some super deep secret you don't want anyone to find out.

You MUST let us know--is ignorance truly bliss?

I like google+ for the sheer fact that it's very barebones for the time-being. No annoying update spams from people playing "this" or "that" game that so-and-so gifted them a prize in the game. I like that, as of this moment, it's more geared toward sharing pictures, info, and updates rather than "liking" this group. I'm sure that will all change as google+ advances, but for now, it does exactly what I wish FB would do (and ONLY that)--allow for the ability to post what I want, and share it only with certain folks (and not all folks) easily. Sure, you can limit who sees what in FB, but it's VERY cumbersome.

I'm not worried about privacy issues, as privacy in this day and age is a facade anyway.

If you want privacy, stay off the internet.

You can also hide yourself from search like in Facebook.

So the only way to have someone add is you if you have them in an extended circle or if you provide a link to your profile.

These figures don't really mean much in my opinion.
Bro...the beers on me.
