Avoiding Google’s forceful Google+ upgrade

Google is being evil. Anyone who hasn’t already created(or has deleted) a Google+ account, is now being forced into one by a ‘upgrade’ to their account. Now there are many reasons why you may not want a Google+ account. No body is a fan of forced upgrades. I am in no mood of another online social network. Google is primarily an advertisement company. I don’t think it’s a good idea to give all your info to a company whose primary source of income is via you personal information.  I have been a fan of Google products and services since the time it was underestimated to be just a “a one-trick pony” in the early 2000s..but since they dropped the motto ‘Don’t be Evil’ they have become kind of naughty..

So basically in an attempt to inflate the number of users on Google+, Google has severely reduced the functionality of YouTube till such time you give in and ‘upgrade’ to Google+. Thankfully there is way out.
