Forced to use Google Plus?

I personally hate the way Google is forcing Google Plus on all of its users including YouTube, Gmail and even the Google Search users. While strolling around YouTube, I stumbled upon a comment by Javed Karim, one of the original founder of YouTube making a frustrated comment on why do I need a Google Plus page to make a YouTube comment.

It is disappointing to see Google going disturbingly corporate in most of the latest decisions. Google seems to connect such changes with privacy solutions but that could be even achieved by making Gmail account single sign on which gives a decent amount of ownership, it seems more like a desperate effort to conquer social media!
