Nicknames For Google+ Now Allowed

Google has changed its previous policy on Google+ and has now allowed users to add custom names to pages. This was announced in a blog post in the Google+ blog where VP Bradley Horowitz confirms that the social network has become more lenient with their policy on usernames.

So beginning Monday, Horowitz announced that the network will now start rolling out the new feature. And to prevent name squatting of trademarks and brands, Google will ask for official scanned documents from you that you have authority to use the name.

Horowitz states that the changes are a “small step towards improving the ways in which you can communicate your identity on Google+. We will be listening to feedback from the community and will continue to refine all aspects of how we handle names and identity over the coming weeks, months and beyond.”
