    Step 1: From Google+, click on the gear icon in the upper-right-hand corner, then click on Google+ settings.

    Step 2: Under the "Accounts overview" section, go to "Services" then click on the link next to Delete profile and social features.

    Step 3: Click on the radio button next to Delete Google+ content and then check the box next to Required, then finally click on the Remove selected services button.

    You'll no longer have access to Google+ and all of your content will be removed "over the next few days." Most importantly, your Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and other Google services will remain untouched.

    Thanks for the advice. I think it's quite straight forward to delete a Facebook account isn't it? If you just go to account settings?

    To delete a Facebook account:

    Go to facebook.com and login.
    Click the arrow that's all the way on the upper right hand corner of the page, it's pointing down.
    You'll get a drop menu. Go to Account Settings.
    Go to the Security tab. You'll see a link that says "Deactivate your account.", click it.

    Remember: Deactivating and deleting are two different things. Your profile will appear to be deleted to everyone but you and you'll be able to activate your account later.

    I wouldn't delete my accounts either. If I didn't want to use them I would just avoid going to those sites, which is what I do as far as Google Plus is concerned.

    Welll to delete your google + account first sign in to your gmail account than go into your profile setting from there deactivate your google + account. You can deactivate your youtube orkut and other accounts as well.

    Don't delete your Google+ account! You're going to be making another one towards the end of 2012 anyways so you might as well keep the one you already have :D

    Google+ is related to Gmail, so I think Delecting Google+ account is risk.
