Hey Megan,

Nothing will happen with reviews now that the toe tag is on Google+. Google Maps reviews and Google+ have been independent of each other for a couple of years now.

One thing some people will need to do - at long last - is update their "Review us on Google" links to point to a functioning URL and not to a G+ page.

Thanks, Phil. To clarify, then, a reviewer won't have to have a Google + social profile in order to leave a review on GMB?

That is correct. Only from May 2012 to March/April 2016 did people need G+ to write a review. Now you need is any old Google account.
