Google+ had to face a lot of criticism owing to its suspension policy a few weeks back. Now Google has again decided to suspend user accounts with nicknames, pseudonyms. However, this time users will be given four days grace time response time rather than suspending their accounts immediately in violation of Google’s Common Names Policy which states, “To help fight spam and prevent fake profiles, use the name your friends, family or co-workers usually call you. For example, if your full legal name is Charles Jones Jr. but you normally use Chuck Jones or Junior Jones, either of those would be acceptable.”
Despite harsh reaction from users regarding the suspension of accounts using pseudonyms, Goolge is still determine to go ahead ensuring that its Common Names Policy is followed in true spirit. The purpose as explained by Google Product Manager Saurabh Sharma is “to make connecting with people on the web more like connecting with people in the real world” on Google+.
For users who would not want to comply with this policy, the “Takeout” feature is available for taking all their data and contact information out of Google+.
