Google+ is officially dead


It’s official. After 8 years after its official reveal, Google terminates its social media platform and deletes every account.

We’ve previously known that Google was about to shut down its social network system, and today at midday the company pulled its plugs and terminated the app. If you head over to plus.google.com right now, you’ll no longer be greeted with a feed of user posts, but rather a post-mortem explaining what happened to the site and the content hosted on it.

Google also makes it clear that other services of the company such as Gmail, Google Photos, Drive or YouTube will not be affected. There’s always apparently been some confusion from some users about that and now Google must’ve made things pretty clear.

Further, Google explains that users can still download their content from the platform. The process of deleting user content is going to take some time, so if you’ve not done so already, it’s probably a good idea to get that data downloaded.
