Here's some free advice for Google. STOP CREATING NEW CRAP.
Work on the interface of the "new" Google, put features like "+", "photos", "video", etc.. all in one user-friendly interface.
I have so many URL's, logins, cookies, and things to keep separate or try to mix myself, (Adsense, YouTube, etc), that I only use what I need, when I need it and am not willing to pollute my existing Google accounts with new "services" that really should just be a new menu item on Google.
If you want to build a portal and the portal has social networking features and they are useful, easy to use, and give me more control over sharing and privacy, maybe I'll try them.
Imagine if FaceBook made users go to "ZuckerPhoto.example.com" and the users then had to set themselves up with new login, then to try to mash the photo sharing with their existing FaceBook account to show "aunty em" a new picture of Toto.
Google continues to shoot themselves in both feet, (the "user" foot, and the "advertiser" foot)...
