Anyway, I typically keep a list of resources when I teach the ATD (ASTD) Advanced Instructional Design for Elearning Certificate, and I keep thinking that I should put the list somewhere. Why You Should Care That Google Ended Its Mandatory Google+ Integration Google has quietly done away with the mandatory integration of Google+ for new Gmail users, adding fuel to the fire that is the speculation of the social network's demise. Back in 2012, Google made the adoption of Google+ mandatory for all new Google service users. When you signed up for a new account for YouTube, Gmail, AdWords, or another Google product or service, you were registered for Google+ as well.
