Google +

In December last year Google said they were going to knock Google + on the head.

Guess what,  on April 2,  they're going to knock Google + on the head.

This rival to, the evillFacebook, unfortunately never really got off the ground. However, if you used it, you're now screwed. Google, who only make a measly £100, 000, 000 a day, can't really afford to carry on running this service. They could have set up a "Go Fund Me" page but didn't.

Ego [extract]:
"On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.
If you're a Google+ Community owner or moderator, you may download and save your data for your Google+ Community. Starting early March 2019, additional data will be available for download, including author, body, and photos for every community post in a public community.
If you sign in to sites and apps using the Google+ Sign-in button, these buttons will stop working in the coming weeks but in some cases may be replaced by a Google Sign-in button.
If you've used Google+ for comments on your own or other sites, this feature will be removed from Blogger by February 4th and other sites by March 7th. All your Google+ comments on all sites will be deleted starting April 2, 2019".

You have been warned.
