Although Google+ is not one of the most popular social networks, many people set up a profile and regularly post to it to help with their Google search rankings and to comment on YouTube.
It’s really worth having a poke around the privacy settings in Google+ so that anything you post there is protected if you don’t want people to be able to abuse it. You can protect your photos somewhat, and select who can tag you and comment on your posts. The privacy settings are also helpful if you get too many updates from Google+ and you want to cut down on the noise to your phone or inbox.

Click on this link to go to your settings, the ones I’ve highlighted in the picture below are the most important to untick along with location services, if you don’t want your posts to have a location attached to them. If you want to delete your Google+ profile you can do that at the very bottom of the privacy settings Page.
