Google’s very own social network that was meant to go head-to-head with Facebook is officially being “amputated.” It will cease to exist starting August 31, 2019. Rest in peace, Google Plus. You were as good as it lasts… if there was any good to begin with. I still recall how Google Plus was forced into blogs and websites like us, as with YouTube users. Having something you didn’t want pushed into your face was, obviously, a happy experience. TBH, I am glad it is finally over for good. Continue reading It’s Official. Google Is Pulling The Plug On Google Plus
