Google+ Going Away!

Scrollable Page ...


In December 2018, Google announced their decision to shut down Google+ for consumers in April 2019 due to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers’ expectations.

What's Happening?

According to Google:

  • On April 2, 2019 we are shutting down the consumer (personal) version of Google+, a social network by Google.
  • If you want, you can download and save your Google+ data; this may take time so get started before March 31, 2019.
  • If you have a G Suite Account, as part of your work or school, you can continue to use Google+ within your organization.
  • No other Google products (such as Gmail, Google Photos, Google Drive, YouTube) will be shut down as part of the consumer Google+ shutdown. The Google Account you use to sign in to these services will remain.
  • You can delete your Google+ account before the consumer Google+ shutdown.

General Questions
Why shut down Google+ for consumers?
According to Google:

Given the challenges in creating and maintaining a successful Google+ that meets our consumer users’ expectations, we decided to sunset the consumer version of Google+. We’re committed to focusing on our enterprise efforts, and will be launching new features purpose-built for businesses.

How can I stay in touch with my Google+ followers?
According to Google:

Between now and the shutdown, we recommend you let your followers know where they can see your content outside of Google+. Consider creating a post that lists your website, blog, social media channels, and other ways to stay in touch.
