The boy, Alex, was kicked off of all Google services for his terms of service violation. Furthermore, his father writes in a blog post that Google informed him that his account will be deleted in 29 days unless he can provide some proof of age (he can't).
This brings up a troubling but important point. Google rules so many markets and this makes it entirely possible to rely only on one company for managing your digital life -- email, word processing and document management, and now social networking.
So play nice on Google+.
There are two sets of rules to follow. Its general terms of service applies to all things Google, and the community standards are specific to Google+. It includes things like:
- no nudity or sexually explicit material
- no hate speech
- no impersonation of others
- no publishing of someone's private or personal information
- no copyright infringement
- no spamming or phishing
