What is a Google+ profile?

Google+ is a social media service, offered outside of the core Mountaineer Apps products, that fosters interaction between people with similar interests.  All Appalachian State Faculty, Staff, Students are eligible to sign up for a Google+ account using their official appstate.edu address.  Upon creation of the accounts users are asked to type their name, age and other identifying elements.  The name is important here because this name is used across all Google products after it is set.
