Google has deactivated my Profile

Published on Christian Mayer's Weblog

After 3 weeks of Google+ they deactivated my Google+ profile because I don’t use my real name.

Google Profile

Update, 2011-07-25: After changing my name into Theodor Fuchs my account has been reactivated within an hour. That’s not my real name but it seems real for Google.

Update, 2014-07-16: Google writing at their Google+ profile:

Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use.

Update, 2014-09-22: I discovered a useful online-tool to generate fake names: I don’t know if it works for Google.

Update, 2015-05-28: I deleted my Google+ Profile. You won’t find me anymore on Google+.
