Finally – it happened! Google+ announced that it drops all the restriction regarding the name you should use on your profile.
When Google+ was launched over three years ago, it had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. According to Google it was supposed to help create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names.
“Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use.
We know you’ve been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today’s change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is”.
This information was published on official Google+ blog and now we can finally use whatever crazy names we really want.
