Google has officially announced that the social media platform Google+ will be shutting down over the next ten months for consumers after the recent security flaw that has exposed users private details. Apparently up to 500,000 Google+ accounts were potentially affected. Google says Google+ currently has “low usage and engagement” and that 90 percent of Google+ user sessions last less than five seconds.
Huge impact on Second Life and OpenSim Google+ communities
This is sad news for all Second Life and OpenSim users that have been running active communities on Google+. This is very disappointing news especially for the active OpenSim Virtual community that has over 2, 000 members because it was a great resource to find out whats going on.
Anyone that uses Google+ will have to move else where within the next 10 months like onto Facebook, Reddit, Pluspora, Discord or Mastodon etc. Whatever happens the communities will come back stronger and bigger after the closure.
Where are you going to move to ?
