Project Strobe: Protecting your data, improving our third-party APIs, and sunsetting consumer Google+

Finding 1: There are significant challenges in creating and maintaining a successful Google+ product that meets consumers’ expectations.

Action 1: We are shutting down Google+ for consumers.

I’m shocked Google is randomly shutting down a service rather suddenly. Just shocked. Who saw this coming?

And I’m genuinely surprised Google+ was compromised the way it was. I thought Google was tighter than that.

I did enjoy sharing posts there, though. RIP, G+. FYI, I’m on Mastodon.
