As well as announcing the imminent arrival of applications to Google’s social network, Vic Gundotra head of Google+ has also announced that Google+ will soon allows users to use pseudonyms.
Gundotra explained during a conversation at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, that while Google started with only allowing users to sign up if they used their real names, it will be adding features that will “support other forms of identity” in the next few months.
The news comes as a turnaround for Google who recently caused a stir amongst Google+ users when it suspended accounts of users who didn’t use their real names and at the time stood firm with their decision to suspended the accounts when questioned about their decision.
Unfortunately no other information is currently available on how Google will implement or control the use of pseudonyms, but as always when any more information comes to light we will keep you updated. if
