I wonder if Google might someday soon require all Adsense publishers to establish and maintain a Google+ account
I am becoming increasingly cynical about Google too, and I also think it's just a matter of when and not if.
Google will do whatever their staggering amount of user data patterns require them to - forget about anything making any 'business' or 'social' or 'ethical' sense.
It's a company run of the data, by the data, for the data.
And Google's becoming very, very unreliable with how they just impose service changes (codephrase: feature improvements) on you (e.g. forcing you to move to a newer interface, killing off APIs or services haphazardly during 'spring cleaning', etc.)
I am actually surprised how a Google fan like me is beginning to sound here... :/
