How to deactivate or delete your Google+ profile

(Too early to cover this, I know, as Google Plus is in beta/limited field testing and I can take criticism for that). Let me tell you according to Google+ help pageall Google profiles must be made public and all private Google profiles will be automatically deleted after July 31, 2011. Google says its service will be best used when all profiles are public and people can be searched easily and find you through the search engine and connect with you online.

Another point to consider – Google+ will be integrated with all Google services, you will get Google+ notifications and you will have access to it directly from any Google service like Gmail, Google Docs, Google search when you log into your Google account . So the Google+ notification icon flashes whenever you are on any Google website when someone adds to your circles or posts comments on your posts, which is more of a distraction than anything else (of course the BlockPlus extension for Chrome helps overcome this).
