Does Google need to blackmail users to use Google Plus?

Google seems to be battering people over the head these days to get them to use Google+, it’s languishing social network that hasn’t picked up much traction since launch.

Google has been trying to push users in to joining Google+ via Youtube comments, Gmail recommendations to fill out profiles, and just generally being overly pushy with the whole thing. Recently Google added a new feature to Gmail where one can email any of their Google+ contacts without having exchanged email addresses. If this sounds creepy to you, don’t worry, you can opt out of this new feature from your Gmail settings.

College Humor’s video says it all though, with their hilariously awesome piss-take on the search giant’s shenanigans.
