    Is Google automatically signing up anyone with a gmail account on Google+? I used to have it and deleted it early 2012. I heard nothing from them until the last month. I have not signed up again. However I'm now getting emails from them and people adding me to their circles. I tried to log in and saw I don't even have a profile (but I appear to exist) so I know my old account wasn't resurrected. What the heck??!!

    So long as you have a Google account you have a Google profile, even if you don't use G+. People can add your Gmail address to their Circles all they want, but unless you choose to share info with them they see nothing from you.

    kinda off topic but you should give g+ another chance.
    all of my friends still use FB so i have to use that for social crap but G+ is great for finding communitys for things youre interested in. I recently got into it again and love it :thumbup:

    When g+ first came out and I signed up, it showed me everybody whose gmail address I've ever emailed as if they were on g+ even though they weren't. Your friends are probably experiencing the same thing.

    Google+ skews geeky and techy. If you want to have an in-depth discussion, Google+ is better than facebook. If you want to have a broad discussion with a large group, facebook may be better for some people.

    What Slug said above is accurate regarding how Google+ handles accounts, circles, etc. If you want to double-check: head to gmail and go to the upper right corner to see your Account.

    I have an active Google+ account, so on the far left I have a Google+ tab that I can click on. You might also. On that page at the very bottom, I have option to "deactivate"

    Check that to see if you are somehow active, etc.

    I still have FB but I'm tired of being addicted to it and such so I refuse to ever use it again. I won't delete myself this time though. G+ was simply not useful to me. Seems like it won't be huge like other social networks. I'll check some of that stuff you smart people mentioned when I have time.

    I think Google replaced the old Gmail Profile page with your G+ profile page. As for G+, I use it mainly for following app devs. :p

    Yea I got into G+ earlier this year and it's great for discussing stuff that you're interested with other people. In my experience people are considerably more mature in G+ and I rarely see any e-arguments and whatnot. There is less of a reluctance to post a comment on G+ than on FB, because on G+ people are nice and respectful. I just don't post any comments on FB pages because people on there are absolute animals lol. Like just a few mins ago someone posted that they didn't find a pic funny which prompted all these trolls to insult them :/

    Lol im far more choosy about who i accept on fb.. generally only people ive actually met but i know what u mean. On G+ i even have a "randoms" circle lol i pretty much add everyone who adds me and other than the XDA type noob-bashing and sarcasm i see on some of the android communities, its usually really mature and respectful. Especially on the animal communitys i use :)

    I subscribe to Dunbar's theory. Therefore I limit myself to 150 friends in all social media.

    I think Path still imposes this limit for the same reason.

    Dunbar's number is a suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. These are relationships in which an individual knows who each person is, and how each person relates to every other person. Proponents assert that numbers larger than this generally require more restrictive rules, laws, and enforced norms to maintain a stable, cohesive group. It has been proposed to lie between 100 and 230, with a commonly used value of 150

    Dunbar's number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I prefer forums to chat. I remember the old Google groups and Yahoo had them beat in all ways. You can discuss a particular telescope, and stay on that discussion with NO personal asides. There is one forum that forbids anything political, religious or controversial subjects even in signatures. You can avoid daily digests and read online only, so no one can add you for anything. If they get your addy, you can add a spam filter and not see them again.

    I do have a FB account, not under real name, and only look at kid's moggies since she isn't putting pics in Dropbox. I wish Adblock worked on FB - I'd delete all the people they suggest as friends.

    As long as you have a gmail account you have accounts at all the Google sites.... Whether or not u use them. From my understanding anyways. Picasa, g+, voice, etc....

    I was about to delete Google+ (again) but something it listed on the bottom of the page stood out to me. It said "You won't be able to use the "Sign in with Google" button to log in to third-party apps."

    Well, I do that with some sites, such as YouTube and Wordpress. For that reason alone I won't delete Google+ (for now).
