Google Changes Google+ Real Name Policy To Allow Pseudonyms [bbc.co.uk]
Established pseudonyms can be used to register accounts on Google+ after the social network relaxed its name policy.

The move follows criticism from human rights groups which had said there were circumstances under which individuals could have become unsafe if they revealed their identities.

The search giant said it had already begun rolling out the amended policy.

However, it is said users must prove their pseudonym has already attracted an audience elsewhere.

Er... If I thought I would be "unsafe" would I register for G+ in the first palce? I think not, even under a fifth-generation pseudonym.
