Google’s Play Store Now Posts Public Reviews Using Your Google+ Name, Goodbye Trolls?

Google Play trolls should recognize their days are numbered as Google socializes comments by linking Play Store reviews to your Google+ account. This really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as YouTube now asks if your comments can be posted using your Google+ name as well. Given that, this change doesn’t come as a huge surprise as Google continues to supercharge Google+ in any way that they can. The addition of Play Store reviews might force those who might otherwise ignore Google+ to start paying attention to their news feed.

I’m hopeful this will offer an overall better experience through the Play Store and through Google+ by association. Better download recommendations through family and friends is a great way to discover apps you might never have known about otherwise. The Android Play Store app has yet to enact these changes as of this writing, so if you’re looking for an opportunity to get some last-minute trolling in, now is your chance.
