Google+ relaxes real name policy to allow pseudonyms
Privacy International, a London-based campaign organisation, said it was still not satisfied with the change.
"This is a sidestep, not a step forward," said Gus Hosein, the group's executive director.
"We would like to see an identity policy that allows for multiple simultaneous identities relevant to each circle and each interaction. That's how the real world works.
"Only a company with engineers as bright as Google's could make this a reality, so until that happens we will remain disappointed."
