    Google was always chasing me on YouTube to change my name. I signed up for Google plus without realizing it. Then I just deleted it (ALL of it because I don’t use gmail. Now I’ve lost access to my Picasa web albums! I can’t remember the verifying questions to reinstate Google plus (and then delete again using YOUR great instructions – it was in 2009 I signed up for Gmail. Forgetful, I’m a senior not great at all this. Help please????

    I did sign up again but Picasa web albums had only one album, whereas before I had about 50, photos from old computer – family, art. So distressing. Should I delete everything again? I suspect if I try to recover now though, they’ll just give me back that one album. thank you.

    When deleting my page, only my posts will be deleted right? Or will my circles be gone too?

  15. Frustrated says:

    I did this over a week ago, but I still have google+. Only the option to remove it has gone.

  16. Anonymous says:

    I’m confused. If I delete the Google+ content, my profile will still be there but if I delete my whole Google+ PROFILE will my Gmail be deleted?

  17. Anonymous says:

    I hate Google Plus and I never signed up for it because I know my contacts and personal information was shared without my permission. I am getting six times more spam mail and I do not know how to remove Google Plus because the instructions have changed, in fact, you are forced to check all the boxes before you can delete the Google Plus account and you lose your original Google account. It gets deleted as well as the Google Plus account that you really do not want, I just want only my Google account.

  18. MGK says:

    The only option I see is, “Close account and delete all services and information associated with it.” That’s not what I want, is it because when I choose it, I see it will delete my Gmail account. Thank you.

  19. Anonymous says:

    After discovering that Google will close my account if I don’t publicly publish my “real name” (no nicknames or aliases allowed)… I was keen on destroying my Google+ account altogether… though I heavily rely on my gmail, google docs, google calendar, etc etc… I’m afraid to do it though… not sure what unforeseen consequences there are… and I don’t want to be hassled about joining Google+ for years on end… gah.

  23. Amy says:

    Pictures aren’t showing up on my blogger blog posts because something happened with the privacy settings in Google+. I never signed up for Google+ so I’m not sure how that happened. The pictures only show up on my blog if I change the privacy settings to public. I’m wondering if I delete my Google+ account will all my pictures show up on my blog again. Somehow picasa web albums is tied in there too. Please help! Thanks so much! :)

    • EXEIdeas says:

      Just Proceed To Your Picasa Web Album And Go To The Blog Album And Make That Public. Read More At: Picasa Web Album Visibility

    • Amy says:

      Thank you for answering! My problem, however, is that I do not want to make my pictures public or have a google+ account. I’ve had my blog for 2 years and never had a problem with my pictures not showing up before. I tried to make my blog album “limited”, but then only some of the pictures show up on the blog. If I delete my google+ account will that solve my problem or will that permanently delete the pics from my blog? Thanks

    • EXEIdeas says:

      If You Will Delete Google+ Then It Will Delete Only Those Pictures That Were Uploaded Through GooglePlus. I Am Telling You To Make Your Blog Pictures Album Public Not GooglePlus Pictures Album. Hope This Will Fix It.
