Google+ Feature

Google has always been updating their apps from time to time with new features and concepts. A new feature in Gmail will result in some Gmail users receiving messages from people with whom they so not know or have not shared their email addresses while raising concerns among some privacy advocates.

On Thursday, Google announced the change which basically broadens the contact list available to Gmail users so it includes both the email addresses of their existing contacts with inclusion to the names of people on the Google+ network. Because of this, a person can now send an email directly to friends and even strangers who are on Google+.

Google is trying to integrate Google+ with its other services such as Google Drive, Google Play Store, Google News, Google Calendar and many others. The usual procedure which follows up while making a Gmail account is that the user is given a Google+ account automatically.

Marc Rotenberg (Executive Director of Non-Profit Electronic Privacy Information Center) called the new feature “troubling”. He also said that there is a strong echo of the Google Buzz snafu by indirectly referring to a social networking service that Google launched in 2010.
