    Your own opinion is probably the best one, in terms of whether or not to do it. I'm flirting with the idea myself and I'll probably do it soon, if I do.

    Different people will have different reasons, but I think it's meant overall for businesses/professionals/institutions who signed up for Google+ under their personal @gmail.com account *before* it was released for Google Apps.

    The more stuff you have in your Google+ account though, the more of a headache it could be. For anyone heavily invested in Google+, it might be a tough proposition to lose the content (e.g. posts, comments/replies). And then you may have to get things in order with YouTube, Picasa etc.. afterward once you get it set up.

    Ever since they forced Google Apps accounts to force a gmail address on you, it's been a hassel to use their service. Hopefully they'll allow us to merge our Google accounts completely, next. I have three google addresses with some forwarding setup so they all go to one place. But if I use YouTube I need to switch accounts and then switch back to check email. fml
