  • The growth of Google+ provides a reason for people to create Google profiles, and that data — along with their activity on the network and through +1 buttons — goes into the vast Google cyberplex where it can be crunched and indexed and codified in a hundred different ways

In effect, Schmidt said Google isn’t interested in changing its policies to accommodate those kinds of users: if people want to remain anonymous, he said, then they shouldn’t use Google+.
  • the reason Google needs users with real names is that the company sees Google+ as the core of an identity platform it is building that can be used for other things:
  • n identity service, so fundamentally, it depends on people using their real names if they’re going to build future products that leverage that information
