Google Play Book Reviews Now Require Google+ Account

Want to review the latest digital book you purchased from Google Play? You’ll need a Google+ account.

Would this affect your online book reviewing? AppNewser has all the details:

Google is integrating user reviews on digital media sold in the Play store with its social network Google+. So if you want to give your opinion on Angry Birds, the new Lil Wayne album, or Michael McConnelly’s new novel,  you’ll have to do so publicly.

When you add a review to the Google Play store, a pop up box explains, “From now on, reviews you write will be posted publicly using your Google+ name and picture. Your name on previous reviews will appear as ‘A Google User.’”
