Google Play Gets Real: Reviews Will Now Be Posted With Your Google+ Name And Picture

4639229188_23708ba388_zWhen you visit a review on Google Play for an app, book, song or movie, you won’t have to worry as much about whether someone is sheepishly hiding behind a computer firing off nasty words, as Google has now flipped on the switch to display your Google+ name and profile picture with all reviews you add to the store.

I’m not so sure this is the best thing in the world, as you don’t have an option to turn it off. I like the idea of inviting people to share their thoughts, and mixing in real names and pictures if chosen by the user. That way, you know what reviews you might want to trust over other ones that are anonymous. The company seems to be choosing quality over quantity, though.
