Goodbye Google +
It is now official Google +, the social network created by Google less than 8 years ago is about to end its journey in the worldwideweb.
It all started back in 2011 in an effort to stop the superphenomenon that Facebook was and still is. Since its inception this social network did not satisfy its users. The layout of the page was not something that people liked. The experience in terms of sharing contents and connecting with our pals was not as funny as it has always been on the Zuckerberg’s creation.
The decision was taken at the end of 2018 and Google has recently announced that its social platform will close on the 2nd of April this year.
Starting from the 4th of February it is not possible to create any other communities, profiles or events and what is still on the platform will be permanently deleted. Given that nobody was actually using this tool we do not believe that it will take that long to erase all of its content. Well we gave credit to the Mountain View’s social network and we constantly shared our posts and articles on the platform but the less than 50 followers that we had should have been a clue about its uselessness…
If you are reading this post it means that we have already cancelled our community on Google + and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you if you have been following us also on that platform.
Please be aware that Google is going to cancel your account too. If you wish to save your pics and contents you just need to follow their instructions on how to make sure to save your content.
Google + is not the first social experiment to go down. Vine, the video sharing platform that Twitter bought from its founders in 2012, lasted only 5 years and on the Vine’s website there is now a statement that says “Dear Vine Community – thank you for all the inspiration, laughs, and loops. We have now placed Vine in an archived state” and there is the drawing of a little waving hand…
Well while we wait to see how Google will pay the final salutation to its users we just would like to say:
Goodbye Google +
