I wanted my daughter to use her google account to talk to her mother who is an exchange student at UofMn.
I added her to Google+, stated her correct birthday and then BAM! I'm met with this: http://i.imgur.com/85wF0.png
She can't acces her email now and Google is going to DELETE her account??!
I read in the help documentation that I'm supposed to be able to vouch for her account, which is exactly what I would consider the right approach. The only catch is that there is in fact no way for me to DO THAT!
Now - WHY would Google do that?
I can't understand, because you shouldn't ever take privileges away from your flock ( I won't use the word customer here since we're the revenue generating product ) Google can stop people from accessing whatever new shit they like. But Google should never take away from people what was formerly their's.
When Google DO revoke services that were formerly being rendered (like deleting the whole Google account of a person) You are only forcing them to either create a new falsified account or making them incredibly mad, joining another service and possibly taking others along with them.
And since I'm on the topic, do they really consider it cool to demand a credit card or a scan of a person's national ID just too keep a freaking email address?
And how come +Vic Gundotra
doesn't use his real name on Google+ ??
