Google+ adds support for pseudonyms -- sort of

Juan Carlos Perez | Jan. 24, 2012
Google has relaxed somewhat its strict real-names policy on Google+, by letting existing members attach an alternate moniker to their profile name and by letting new members sign up with just a pseudonym, provided it is an "established" identity online or offline.
