I'd been planning to post how the bloom is off the rose for Google+, what with their arbitrary "true name" (for the purposes of tracking to sell metrics to marketing agencies) policy, but then Facebook one-ups them in the gross violation of privacy arena by straight up copying your address book off your phone, so that even if you never wanted your # public, if a Fb friend has it, TOUGH SHIT. As usual, they didn't even ask; they just did as they liked. There is, of course, a labyrinthine way of turning that off, but fuck it, they have the data now, & they're not going to delete it. I don't expect much better from Google+, but at least for the moment they have more basic concerns to address as the new kid before they can get that creepy & presumptuous.
