    I doubt mark would let it happen although I haven't read the article in post #1

    I may have a Facebook profile but I don't have a Google+ account. If I want Google+ to have my information, I would sign up for Google+.

    If you have a gmail account or probably even sign in at youtube, you most likely already have a Google+ acct. as I found out.
    After reading facebook privacy
    facebook terms
    & facebook help
    I decided I didn't need it.

    How is Youtube and Google tied together? Is Youtube dependent on Google?

    I think Google bought Youtube in 2H, 2006 (please correct me if I am wrong as I am too lazy to search for exact date) :p

    You may have noticed that when creating a new login at some website(X), there frequently appears a choice box
    for "logging in with" Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Gmail, .....

    I would expect profile info to be imported if one would use that option, but for myself,
    I expect privacy and don't cross-link these sites so I have control of what is disclosed where.
    Unless you're dealing with services owned by the Google giant, no site can
    "require" your info from another without your concent (imo).

    Just my $0.02
