I have received a mail from Google+ on the 14th of May informing me the following......!!!!!

Devinder  Nangia added you on Google+...

Mr Davinder  Nangia was my childhood friend who  died in Dec 2012.

What the hell...What do I do with Google account?

Face Book keeps irritating you by suggesting the people “you may list”

Twitter keeps irritating you by similar notifications.

Has anyone amongst you  been experiencing similar irritants.?

How do you handle this?

Oops! How did that happen?? Looks like some family member must have accessed his google account!
Suggestions are ok, as they are mere suggestions based on the common friends or groups we are in... it is up to us to add or ignore these suggestions.
I simply ignore the suggestions :)

Google + is real nuisance. It keeps adding friends even when I have opted out of Google + long back.

In facebook, you can disable all the notifications emails. Not sure what to do with Google+. Just grin and bear it.

very strange. It is best to ignore it.

Rachna said...

That is strange. Like Shilpa pointed out, some family member must have logged in.

I don't use google+ at all! We already have so many social networks, why include one more. But I also get notifications from twitter often. I just ignore it.

But a man who is no more is asking for friendship?! Somebody is misusing his id, I think!

Hi BK,

Sorry to hear about your friend. Well, such things do happen, and it's best to either ignore such notifications as sometimes they come or show up very late, or then remove the option of certain kinds of notifications (Only Facebook and Twitter have these, G+ has yet to come up with a better way).

Thanks for sharing. :)

Well Chowla sir, its not just limited to Twitter, FB or Google. Complex alogrithms feed on our history and footprints we leave on the web and give suggestions. Thats how all the apps will work. The apps these days are very intrusive; can't help.

So just ignore.
