For some months now, a Google search on a topic I have written about produces this reply:
"20 personal results. This is a limited preview. Upgrade to Google+"
And indeed, instead of showing me what others can see, I am like in a maze of mirrors showing me, me, me and pictures.
Google+ seems to be a social connection booster. Basically I don't like these Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and others. I don't quite understand what has made them so popular, and I would rather stay out of the trend, but I do like Google and its ways. I think the "threat to privacy" doesn't come from there.
However, now, if I want to see what everyone else can see, I have to use the Firefox "tool" of "Private browsing" also called "anonymous browsing".
I would very much like to know what other WordPressers think of this.
