Sandra, a friend of mine way back college, asked me the question above. She has a MyLife.com subscription (her Mastercard has charges from MYLIFE PPL BKGRD SVC) and she wants to cancel it because she no longer uses it and she wants a refund. After she asked me this question, I just had a blank stare at her. I have no idea what MyLife.com it because I haven’t used that site before.
If you’ve noticed this, then you’ve noticed it! Google Profiles now redirects to Google Plus. This is not really a big deal for everyone, but a big deal for vain people who already fell in love with their custom Google Profiles friendly URL. If your name is Paul and you have a Google profile with the URL profiles.google.com/paul, it will now be redirected to plus.google.com/(the 20 annoying random integers here)
Good thing the Google user with the username Paul didn’t create a Google+ profile yet (as of writing this post). But when the time comes that he creates a Google+ profile, his lovely /paul friendly URL in Google Profiles will be gone to oblivion and will be converted to a Google Plus user ID.
