Google is showing just how committed it is to promoting its social networking platform. When you sign up for a new Google accounts, you're getting both a Gmail account and a Google+ profile automatically registered to you.
Generally, signing up for a new Google account allows the creation of a Gmail or a Youtube account. But with Google's latest policy, when you sign up for a new Google account, you're automatically get both a Gmail account and a Google+ profile automatically registered to you.
Google is obviously believing that this make sense since it is much easier for new users to have everything set up at once rather than having to separately sign up for Gmail and Google+ later.
"We're working to develop a consistent sign-up flow across our different products as part of our efforts to create an intuitive, beautifully simple, Google-wide user experience. Making it quick and easy to create a Google Account and a Google profile enables new users to take advantage of everything Google can offer," Google says.
