Google: No Private Google+ Profiles for You!

Quote:
Privacy advocates have held Facebook's feet to the fire on several occasions over various privacy issues that have crept up since its inception, and if Google's to truly become a Facebook killer, the sultan of search would be wise not to follow in Zuckerberg's footsteps.
