Google Play adds Google+ names, pictures to store reviews to cut down on anonymous trolls

Google Play: Google+ Name

The next time you log into Google (GOOG) Play to flame Justin Bieber fans by panning his latest single, beware: thousands of angry preteens will soon know who you are and what you look like. As TheAndroidSoul notes, Google has started adding its users’ Google+ profile names and pictures to Google Play user reviews, thus making it much harder for trolls to spam pages with anonymous negative reviews. Barring users who opt to create new Google+ accounts solely to bombard Google Play, the move should go a long way to curtail trolling by finally¬†introducing¬†some accountability.
