It was tied to your entire account before so you couldn’t delete it. I hate how google wants to advertise their own products to you and your friends through your use. At least the appeal of facebook was the actual stalky content and the ads were for 3rd party assholes. Without the stalky content the G+ updates are pretty useless and without being able to blame 3rd party assholes it taints my image of google.
“Steve joined a Hangout with Ben today at 4:06PM”
Thank you for posting that to my wall. I’m glad that my chat with Ben via the gmail window was pushed to everyone on G+ so that they are reminded they too can “hangout.” It’s like having advertisements for a store INSIDE of your store… I am already here, I am already using google… just leave me and my data the fuck alone.
