For those of you that are interested in deleting your Google+ profile for any reason, whether it's a company that's gone out of business, or you just don't want to manage the page, or you want to start over, or whatever it is, I wanted to give you insight on how you can go ahead and delete that. Right here I am logged in, and I'm under the Home tab. You'll click and go to your profile, and you can go to your settings either by clicking here, or you can also go here and under Page settings, and I am going to scroll down to the bottom of the page and down, down, down here, it shows where I can go ahead and delete the page.
I'm going to hit Delete page and what it does is it's not permanent, it actually gives you one more option before you make that very permanent, erase everything you have started, whether it's Photos, your About pages, your graphics. When you delete the page, the other managers cannot access it anymore and all of the social features of the content will be removed, and it does give you the suggestion of transferring ownership, and that's for some people. Let's say Jaryl as the CEO just says, "I can't do it anymore. I have to delete it," she can always transfer ownership.
So just know that you can delete the page. It is an option. It will not negate your ability to manage other Google accounts or your personal profiles. I am going to go ahead and hit the big X box and get out of that, so I don't delete all the work we did on our No Obstacles Sport page, and I also wanted to show you how you can delete a personal profile. So as I am logged in as Jaryl Leonard, the CEO of No Obstacles Clothing, I am going to go ahead and go right to her personal profile here on Google+, and what I am going to do is go here. I am going to click under Profile, and just like we have the Settings option on our Google+ Business page, we have the same for our personal page.
You can get to it either by clicking here, or you can go here under Account which takes you into your Settings. And just like the Business page, you can scroll down, and you have under the Services section, the option to delete your personal profile and other Google+ features. You can also delete your entire Google account. I am going to click on both of these, so we can see the options here. This one is specific to Google+ content and your Google+ profile. So if you just say I don't want to be on Google+ anymore, I don't want my profile out there, I am going to go ahead and delete this. I can do one or two of these options here.
I am going to cancel out of that because I don't want to delete my profile. And for any reason if you want to close your entire Google account, you can go ahead and click that, and of course, as Google highlights this in asking you to read it carefully, you can delete accounts like AdWords, your web History, things like that. I am going to cancel out of that, and so what I wanted to let you know is you have options to delete your profile, not just for your Google+ business page, but also for your personal account as well.
