I have access to two completely separate google accounts. And it looks like google is trying to merge them. One is an important personal e-mail address, and the other is an important college domain contact address.
I urgently need access to both of my accounts, both of which I’ve been able to log into until recently. I have a hunch if I “choose an account” as the prompt says, one account will be terminated. I’ve already had one of my old youtube channels stolen from me by google in early 2011, when google forced everyone to decide on one channel that no one knew would be associated with a new google account, and terminated the ability for one e-mail address to have more than one youtube channel. It was a catastrophic and devastating loss. I cannot allow google to ruin my accounts any further. My academic standing is on the line now. I need access to these accounts, and I need to know what will happen if I choose one.
Does any one else on earth have two completely separate google accounts that have nothing to do with one another that google is trying to merge? I can’t be the only one facing this.
Are they literally giving everyone on earth a single google account? That’s effectively what they’re doing, since these accounts of mine have nothing to do with one another. Completely separate.
What’s the point of having an account in the first place if you can’t have more than one account on a particular service? How does google know that these accounts are being used from one computer? Is there a team of IT people looking through my webcam? What if I only used one away from home, and one on my home computer? How in the hell does this work?
Google is ruining my life again.
Google is like the EA of the social web.
Eventually I’ll just be strapped to a table in a google building and all I will be able to do is browse google products and read through all of their ever changing license agreements.
