Google+ is shutting down

Citing low users and difficulties with data breaches, Google+ plus will be slowly shut down over the next ten months.

To my Google+ followers, you can still follow me on Twitter  Where I'm known as Peter Hiv 

I post each blog post to there. Or you can just save the link 
to this blog and have a look every now and then.

I'm not on Farcebook, Instagram, or anything else ither than Blogger and Twitter.

Other than that, it's been a pleasure xx
The review did highlight the significant challenges in creating and maintaining a successful Google+ that meets consumers’ expectations. Given these challenges and the very low usage of the consumer version of Google+, we decided to sunset the consumer version of Google+.

 To give people a full opportunity to transition, we will implement this wind-down over a 10-month period, slated for completion by the end of next August. Over the coming months, we will provide consumers with additional information, including ways they can download and migrate their data.

 At the same time, we have many enterprise customers who are finding great value in using Google+ within their companies. Our review showed that Google+ is better suited as an enterprise product where co-workers can engage in internal discussions on a secure corporate social network. Enterprise customers can set common access rules, and use central controls, for their entire organization. We’ve decided to focus on our enterprise efforts and will be launching new features purpose-built for businesses. We will share more information in the coming days. Google Blog
