Google+ no longer necessary for other Google services, company announces

Google will no longer force users to have a Google+ profile for them to use Google's other services, including Gmail and YouTube. "We made a few choices that, in hindsight, we needed to rethink," reads a blog post from Bradley Horowitz, Google's vice-president of streams, photos and sharing, . One of those changes is to no longer link a user's Google+ account to all their other Google products.
