A few days ago I set up a new gmail account under a nickname. I already have a long standing google mail account under my real name but wanted a separate account.
Yesterday I received an email from google telling me there was a problem with my google+ account. It needed a real name or it would be shut down. Now as far as I know google+ is a social networking site? A bit like face book? I wasnt aware I was signing up for it. I thought I was just signing up for a gmail. I dont intend to ever use google+. Are the two inseparable? Can't I have "just" a gmail account like my main account?
