As I have multiple email accounts that use Google's email system (for my various businesses and companies I'm an advisor for), I have loads of Google+ profiles. This is my real one, but I wonder how many of Google+'s accounts are duplicates that are never used (like my 8)...

A few questions:
1. Why hide
2. Why use Google - I haven't yet found anything less secure
