Re: google play reviews now require google+ Kind of the same... but I'd also like to point out Google (G+) work in completly different ways toward revenue. G+ can stand on itself as the information used from G+ (and other Google services) are all angled toward ranking and ads on websites. Facebook relies on "friends" spamming "friends". To some this might be a subtle difference but I think it's actually pretty big when it comes to ones use of the actual service. Nothing annoys me more then a "friend's" post stating that they "like" some service. No they don't... they just wanted a kickback from that company at my expense! Websites are going to have ads if they are free. Do I really care if those ads are based on things that I like or might buy? If anything at least they are for something I'm probably interested in.
