Google+ Shuts Down On 2nd April 2019


My Google+ Profile Page

Google+ will be now shutting down on Tuesday 2nd April 2019 and all consumer data will be deleted. This includes all photos, pages, comments and videos.

Google announced back in December an early shutdown due to a bug that exposed millions of people’s private information to app developers.

Important Note: As early as 4th February 2019 anyone wanting to create new content will no longer be able to create new Google+ profiles, pages, communities or events. If you’re a Google+ Community owner or moderator you can still download your data for your Google+ community.

In the coming weeks the sign-in buttons for Google+ will stop working although you’ll be able to sign in with your Google account.

It will be a real shame to see Google+ shut down in two months time as it was a useful way to find out what’s happening in Second Life, OpenSim, Sansar and for many other interesting things.

Google+ Shutting Down Within The Next 10 Months – Big Loss For Second Life & OpenSim Users


The end of Google+ within the next 10 months

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, PlusporaDiscord or Mastodon etc. Whatever happens the communities will come back stronger and bigger after the closure.

Where are you going to move to ?
