Google+ Is Shutting Down.


Google+ is shutting down.

In a rare defeat, Google has announced it is shutting down this platform, which for most MyOnlineToolbox customers was never an issue in the first place (since we promoted a separate social sharing platform to focus upon).

Regardless, take a moment to review this Google help page to ensure you transition away from the platform correctly, and of course remove the Social Sharing Icon from your website too.

All summarized here on the Google Support Forum

Thank you, I hadn't thought about the need to remove that share icon from my site.

Does this mean we won't be able to log into sights or games with our G+ info? If so, I won't be doing as much site joining or such. It makes it much easier to sign into things like YouTube and such.

The service that verifies your InterNet I.D. is at the same time watching and Recording for third parties everything that you do.....

In the old days they'd cut the tongues out of the house slaves to cut down on gossip.

More Privacy, LESS BIG DATA please.

Re: Google+ Is Shutting Down.


Google + was a failure from the start. For what it's worth, I wouldn't rely on anything Google. I does use some of their services, but I now always ask myself what would I do if they shut it down (a good practice for any cloud based SAAS (software as a service) today. Google has a habit of building a 1/4 baked product, never improving the product and then shutting it down when it fails to perform (bring in enough ad revenue?).
