After seeing recent articles about the new Google or Gmail account signup process now including G+ automatically with both... I remain mystified... previously, it had been my understanding that the age requirements and identity requirements for a Gmail account and a basic non-Gmail Google account were quite different from the age and identity requirements for a G+ account. Have the TOSes changed for the various Google services to synchronize age and identity requirements, coinciding with the change to the Google account creation process?
