Will Google be more uptight than Facebook?

Now that Google+ Pages has been launched, more people are joining the land rush to get their page. Understandably, a lot of people in adult entertainment are feeling a little reluctant to join up.  Well that might not be for a bad reason, though there are some questions that remain.

So porn, and any adult content, on Google+ is right out. It absolutely forbidden.  In their policy, under their User Content and Conduct Policy, it states:

10. Sexually Explicit Material

Do not distribute content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material. Do not drive traffic to commercial pornography sites.

Your Profile Picture cannot include mature or offensive content. For example, do not use a photo that is a close-up of a person’s buttocks or cleavage.

So even PG13 content might be pushing the limits. And yes, they are making it just as easy to report TOS abuse as Facebook does.

However, adult is not the only place they are cracking the whip. They are not allowing promotions, contests, sweepstakes or coupons on the site. This means that businesses might really have to use Google+ just to be social!

The biggest danger is if you do get your page deleted you risk getting everything deleted. Yes, even your gmail. So if you do decide to get a page, I recommend having it associated with a gmail account that is not your primary.
