Randy Abrams bids farewell to Google+

January 10, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Yesterday Google announced a new feature in Gmail: it integrates with Google+. Gmail will now supply the address of anyone you follow even if you don’t have, and that person has never provided, the relevant email address.

There are obvious privacy issues here. But it’s not as simple as that and there are easy opt-outs. Nevertheless, you can see how some people might be concerned. Randy Abrams is one such person. In fact, he’s so concerned, he’s dumping G+.

Is it just me? “I’m leaving G+ because of the way they treat their users. You can find me over at Facebook…” Does nobody else find that just a wee bit, well, strange…?
