A year ago I created this YouTube user called
CmisSync CMIS Synchronizer and uploaded some video tutorials about my product called "CmisSync".
Somehow I also got an associated Google+ account with the same name
CmisSync CMIS Synchronizer.
Unfortunately, the Google+ account recently got disabled:
Apparently I should have created a Google+ Page instead, as product names are not accepted as Google+ profile names.
Fair enough, my bad, then let's destroy my profile and create a Page instead, I thought.
So I click
Take action, a popup appears:
Looks good, what I want is
Create a Google+ Page, so I click on it and get:
In the screenshot above I am told that I need to provide a person name, and this name will be used for all associated products, including YouTube as explained by the Learn more link.
I don't want the YouTube user to have the name of a real person, as it is about a product.
- Should I give my real name in the dialog above, then I will be able to change the YouTube-visible name back to the name of the product?
- Should I abandon this Google+ profile, and create a different new Google+ page for the product, from scratch, separate from the YouTube account? This forces me to also create a new YouTube account. Any other drawback doing this?
- Any better alternative?
