Also, if you look up the help on how to "downgrade" from Google+, it says you will lose access to "some services" but doesn't say which. So, who's going to press that button?
As I have said here. Don't give anything to Google that you don't mind to be absolutely public.
I am routinely, daily called by several other names that aren't on Photo ID or LinkedIn. I'm known by these names. I publish software and make other products and conduct business under them. But Google will no doubt delete them anyway.
Evil empire, anyone?
When I looked in on G+ some time ago I was told "it's new, APIs are coming". Nothing has come. I think Google are dragging their feet and trying to create a Google-only ecosystem.
One problem here is that Google's law enforcement is much more effective than Facebook's. If you're going to enforce laws, they'd better be a lot more subtle than a page of vague “community standards”, and your police will need training and discretion. None of these things seems to have dawned on Google.

My goal has been to become a skilled generalist -- to understand well how all parts of an organization work, and how those parts must connect together to achieve the organization's goals. I can talk to anyone and understand their problems, understand the general problems, then propose solutions which work across the organization. In my experience, most problems are to do with communication. Having said that I can also solve domain specific problems. And I write good code.
