Google Sucks at Authentication UX

30 June 2011

Like a lot of entrepreneurs I have a love/hate relationship with google.  But I’m just going to come out and say they suck at UX.  I know that’s not a popular opinion. Everyone praises them for their fast and simple looking UI.  The latest example of this suckage can be seen if you happen to have both a personal gmail account and a Google for your domain account… which a lot of entrepreneurs and sole proprietors have…

I’m sure you’ve all seen messages like this one I received trying to be an early adopter of Google+.

There isn’t even a link that tells you to log out and log in with an account that works.  Of course, I understand that it may take time to integrate Google+ so that their PAYING customers can use it but YouTube…

Well, at least they told me what I can do about it. But, come on, how long have they owned YouTube?
