re: 5 Steps To Google+ Compliance
I would agree that #s 3 and 5 are huge. It's pretty amazing (and disturbing) what people *don't* know about social networking, in terms of reach and potential pitfalls. I think this is one of the reasons Google+ may eventually overtake Facebook (if not in number of users then in businesses using it). The ability to easily wall off your friends from your family from your professional contacts, and so on, is huge in terms of protecting data and privacy.

re: 5 Steps To Google+ Compliance
Personally, I think # 3 and # 5 are the only reasonable ones. Saying that you're just going to technologically block people from doing damage is the equivalent of saying that you're going to stop them from handing out confidential documents in AA's Admiral's Club, or tape their mouths so that they can't say inflammatory or liability-ridden things. People are going to do what they're going to do (meaning if they want to cause harm), even if they have to go to Starbucks and do it. If you can educate them and talk about it, that's the best thing.
