Jahvoll Mein Herr Google+

I am so sorry I signed onto Google+.

And I feel even worse now that I understand my signing

on means that my old blog buddies have to set up a Google+

profile to comment on my blog.

Joining Google+ is easy enough. 

You segregate your online contacts into circles called 'friends',
'acquaintances' or 'family'. 

Presumably 'family' is where you put anyone who is extremely


Anyway -  that part is like a false front on a building.

Behind the scenes things seem rather manipulative, i.e., I keep

getting messages from Google+ that people I have never followed
are 'following me back' and then of course I feel obligated to add

them to my circles.

 And you can quickly lose control of what is happening to your blog site.


Sometime in the last week or so bossy Google+ took over
a North End Journal from its parent, user friendly Google.

No comments come to me except through them now.

It feels like being in a face book forced labour camp.

What I'm saying is that I did not, to my knowledge give
Google+ permission to go into Blogger and make such
changes on my blog.

I don't like Google+ and my advice is to stay away.
