I like this version better!
 
Is Google+ Being Pieced Apart? Dismantled? Rebranded?
It's time to call in the Ghost(town)busters!

Well the internet is buzzing again with doom and gloom for Google+. Reports by the typical outlets have taken more comments from Google employees out of context and spun another series of sensational articles about the demise of Google+. 

Well, sorry to burst your bubble guys:

> Exhibit A: Google's own +Yonatan Zunger confirms the 'streams' name has been there all along and has nothing to do with an upcoming change
https://plus.google.com/+JaanaNystr%C3%B6m/posts/NfgyHjvivsB

HT to +Jaana Nyström for that one.

> Exhibit B: Thoughtful commentary from +Derek Ross, also confirming that 'Streams' was always part of the language and thoughts on 'decompartmentalized' features
https://plus.google.com/+DerekRoss/posts/7NqKXDxueHP

So, no folks, don't believe everything anything you read from big news sites who's business model is based on page views, especially when it comes to Google+.

Nothing against that model, but it's been proven time and time again that journalistic accuracy and integrity is trumped by creative sensationalism as a means to drive traffic.

Will be adding more resources on this as I find them. Got any I should add?
