We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

Good move, but Google+? Who cares about Google+?

Are most of those not just forced gmail, android and youtube users? Most g+ pages rarely seems to have any activity at all.

They distinguish them (somehow) as active. So if they were forced to register they kept using it, so I don't know if it matters.

If I post a comment on youtube it wants me to post it to g+ at the same time. I guess Google counts that as active?
