Looks Like Google+ Is Going Away

Just a reminder: It’s okay to leave comments!

Looks like the security breach in Google's sort-of-equivalent to Facebook was the last straw for Google+. I know it isn't that popular. Even Google says so. This is from their blog:
This review crystallized what we’ve known for a while: that while our engineering teams have put a lot of effort and dedication into building Google+ over the years, it has not achieved broad consumer or developer adoption, and has seen limited user interaction with apps. The consumer version of Google+ currently has low usage and engagement: 90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds.
I'm not sure what Google thought my expectations were; they never asked me. It was, I'd hoped,  another way to get info out about stories I've written though I seldom got any feedback via Google+. I wonder if Blogger is next. Guess I'd better do a backup...

RIP G+ (in 2019)

And, no, I still won't get on Facebook.
