Simple Reason Why Google+ No Longer Requires Real Names

Google announced today that they will no longer require Google+ users to use their real names.

The rationale is simple. Google+, although originally designed to be a Facebook killer, never became a serious contender.

Moreover, Google itself knows exactly where you live, where you commute to, which websites you frequent, which videos you like, what search terms you use. It can probably guess quite accurately what your real name is and what your job position is through your connected Gmail account. Google doesn’t need you to add a real name to your Google+ account. They already know, and much more.
