Bye Bye Google Plus Great Social Media Site

 

It may be news to you and was to me that GOOGLE has decided to shut down G+ (Google Plus) after the disclosure that user information has been exposed.  The worse part of it is that GOOGLE knew about it for months and did not let users, like myself, know about it! google plus Another misstep for this search engine that makes all users shudder.  It is believed that user names, email addresses, occupation, gender and age of users was revealed.  Just be aware of it.

 

 

 

Google Plus has been struggling to match Facebook in its social exercise of 'togetherness' and this was the straw to break the camels back it seems.  Personally I found it more professional and loved the photos, scenes and top posts by SEO gurus to be far superior.  It will be missed by me.  I suppose you can now say all those posts were for not!
