A few years ago I sold all my stuff to explore the world, creating 12 startups in 12 months and building $1M+/y in companies as an indie maker such as Nomad List and Remote OK. I'm also a big pusher of remote work and try to analyze the effects it will have on society. Follow me on Twitter or see my list of posts. My first book MAKE is out now.

Google+ spamming people every 2 weeks to put up a profile photo

Dear Google,

This is you sending me an email every 14 days telling me I should put up a profile photo. I don’t want to put up a profile photo up since it’s a business account that manages a page. You are now actually spamming me more than Facebook did — before I left it.

This isn’t how I used to know you. Get it together, Google.



A discussion about this post is going on at Hacker News.

P.S. I wrote a book on building indie startups called MAKE. And I'm on Twitter too if you'd like to follow more of my stories. I don't use email so tweet me your questions. Or you can see my list of posts. To get an alert when I write a new blog post, you can subscribe below:
