Google are studying down G+ next month. It’s a shame it didn’t really take off as a platform as it had really good early potential at a time when Facebook was floundering.
Sadly, forcing people into the platform and then pulling people’s photo collections in without them asking really didn’t do it any favours.
Friends never came, people (including myself) drifted back to Facebook and Twitter, and G+ just became a ghost town with a few select devotees keeping the platform alive.
It shuts soon, and Google have now allowed various sharing and data removal procedures. I’ve already left, and I’ve already decoupled my blogger.
