Google Profiles Get a Facelift; Mine Just Gets Schizophrenia
Google has announced the upgrade to Google Profiles. The only problem is, I have no idea what’s going on with my profile and why it has multiple personality disorder.
Take a look at the new profile that I see when I log in to profiles.google.com:
Nice, clean, certainly something I’d be happy to have show up in a reputational search for my name. Problem is, this is not the profile that others see in Google. This one is:
Notice that not all of the info from the first profile has made it over.
After digging around, I found how I can edit the second profile, but it’s basically a different interface to the one Google is pushing in its announcement. In other words, I technically have two different Google Profiles.
Seems to me that Google’s right hand is not telling its left hand what the heck is going on with Profiles.
PS. I know that schizophrenia is not the same as multiple personality disorder–I studied psychology in college–but that’s not what the majority of the world believes. 😉
