starting your own social network based on one feature that could easily be rolled into facebook? not so much

At some point uploading Youtube videos from my phone stopped saying "PipeRifle" and started saying the other semi-fake name tied to my piperifle gmail account. Now I have two youtube accounts and no idea how to change my phone to upload to the right one and no idea how to merge them or even delete one of them because they're both tied to piperifle at gmail

other ways to sabotage google is playing politics and pitting your co-workers against each other and designing privacy infringing features that sound good to the rest of google but will end up as a pr disaster when normal people get a whiff of it. these are all things u can do without putting ur job at risk but also fulfilling the greater yospos mission of destroying google. just make the culture toxic as heck

for me whenever i go to youtube after signing into google it asks me which account i want to use. i choose my non-gmail account and post snarky, abusively trolly comments with that. no one sees that on my google+ account, right?

the prob with g+ is its not a product, its an architecture. its a centralised loose grab bag of features so that instead of multiple teams doing social badly in isolation, they can do social badly once and have it spread everywhere. they never actually got round to defining it for the user.

the sad thing is the new system is actually more flexible than the old: instead 1 goog account= 1 channel, its now 1 goog account = 50 psuedonym channels + 1 real name channel.

people are so busy trying to escape real names that they never even get the chance to read the dialog

According to two sources, Google has apparently been reshuffling the teams that used to form the core of Google+, a group numbering between 1,000 and 1,200 employees.
