I don't have a profile with Google now. I didn't use my right name, they have location only by GPS, they don't have birthday or gender. All they have is name, phone,and carrier (only one phone) and I like it that way. I don't feel like being pestered about a profile or posting.
I have both FB and Twitter accounts - FB only for those devs who put their customer service or web site there. Twitter only follows Mars Rovers. I keep getting email as to why I don't post. Google Play managed to hide the logout menu on the computer for a couple of weeks with a big pesty notice about joining +. I know I don't have to use it, but it's the principle of the thing. I prefer this site to either FB or Twitter. I don't have people who might have a general interest pestering to be friends, most of the posts stay on topic. I'd want an "eff-off" button as I'm not interested in half of those "people you might know" pitches.
