Google+ shuts down
Goodbye Google+. The end game/date for Google+ for consumers (personal) has been announced as the 2nd April 2019. So 

Honesty is (most often or not) the best policy and Google has been pretty upfront that they are shutting down Google+ for consumers due to "low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers' expectations."

Now Google have announced the next steps including how to download your photos and other content and the end date to be able to use the platform.

So on April 2nd 2019, Google+ accounts and any Google+ pages created will be shut down and Google will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts.

Photos and videos from Google+ consumer Album Archive and Google+ pages will also be deleted.

Users can download and save their content, as long as they do that before April, but as early as February 4th, newbies will not be able to create new Google+ profiles, pages, communities or events - kinda makes sense really. 

See the recent google statement and FAQ for more details and updates leading up to the shutdown. There's info for G Suite customers (Google+ for G Suite accounts will remain active) developers using Google+, and other info we can't think to include right now. 

Goodbye Google+.
