Google+ has now allowed companies, organizations, and the like to create pages and the deluge of advertising has started:

- People have started sharing Google+ pages with me - no context, just a hit-and-run advertisement, like this:

- +Robert Scoble was first off the mark with a product placement in his post ( )

- We're also being hit with branded hangouts, like this one from +The Muppets

- The comments are being hit with links to brand pages (also on the Muppets page, probably more soon)

- I got the following in my email: Follow my fashion website page View or comment on Mana Ionescu's post

- Scammers have already started creating fake product pages.

Please make it stop!

Is there any way to get through this without being smothered in advertising?
