Something to think about Google+ real name policy + forcing the integration to Google platform users.

Interestingly,

Eric Schmidt ( https://play.google.com/store/people/details?id=104233435224873922474), Keving Rose ( https://play.google.com/store/people/details?id=110318982509514011806) and Marissa Mayer ( https://play.google.com/store/people/details?id=118207880179234484610) profiles are empty.

Possibly they are not sure what Google + publishes and what it doesn't either, so they have separate profile or not using Android at all, or maybe just not active.

The good thing is Google seems to be backing away from the original Google+ strategy. The report states that Google+ will no longer be considered a product that competes with Facebook and Twitter, and that Google's mission to force Google+ into every product will end. With this downgrade in importance comes a downgrade in resources. TechCrunch claims that 1000-1200 employees—many of which formed the core of Google+—will be moved to other divisions. Google Hangouts will supposedly be moved to Android, and the Google+ photos team is "likely" to follow. "Basically, talent will be shifting away from the Google+ kingdom and towards Android as a platform," the report said. The strange part is that both of these teams create cross-platform products. So if the report is true, there will be a group inside the Android team making iOS and Web apps, which doesn't seem like the best fit.
