Google+ profile given automatically to new Google accountsEarlier we reported about Google+ having over 90 million users, and now it looks like the number is going to be significantly larger in the near future. It has been reported that Google is now automatically giving all new Google account sign ups a free Google+ profile. This means that if you create a new account for Gmail, Google docs or any other Google service, a Google+ profile will be assigned to you.

If you wonder why Google is implementing such a feature, the company is trying to simplify the account creation process – create one Google account and be eligible to use all Google services. Seeing how nothing was wrong with the previous system, it seems more like an attempt to attract even more users to its Google+ service.

Since not everyone who wants to use Google’s services want a Google+ account, this may come as a minor annoyance to some people. Fortunately users aren’t required to keep the Google+ profile and will have the option of deleting it anytime from the Account Settings page – or they can just leave it stagnant to collect virtual dust online.
