Strictly speaking this is not Authorship
but it's not a million miles way either and I feel it merits discussion here given the penchant and interest of community in being open with their identity and their content.http://arstechnica.com/business/2013/10/google-will-soon-put-your-face-name-and-content-in-its-ads/
Personally I have no issue with always having made public my + 1's in that profile tab, although I know others have not, and let's face it, closer scrutiny of some including marketers just shows them plussing their own or clients content.
But avatar adjacent displayed endorsements on products - how do you feel about that - even though you can opt out of them.
Part of me initially felt it was too Facebooky
but after a split second of thought, I settled and personally don't mind - if I am proud enough of the association and the endorsement in the first place, then why not?
After all, it already happens in the Play Store or Chrome store, and when I see a product there with + 1 from someone I can relate to already from Circles, I certainly feel more comfortable obtaining it - so this is just an extension of that.
So my query is , do you think this endorsements
development will make people who are ignorant of Authorship, even more
curious and determined to attain it?
Love to hear thoughts about those who feel strongly about this in any way, be it if you are someone who conceals their plus ones, or who would opt out, or change their behaviour from now on.
