Google+ pages will shut down on April 2

Google+ pages will shut down on April 2”

AND SO it came to pass that on the second day of April in the Year of our Lord Twenty-hundred and nineteen, the shutters will close for the final time on the social network for loners, Google+.

Users who have pages, communities, and media stored in their Google+ profile must download and save their content before April 2019, as all of the data from consumer accounts will be deleted on 2 April 2019.

If you're a Google+ user, here's how you can save your data from getting deleted. You will still be able to download and save your content, but only until April 2. As of February 4 you won't be able to make new Google+ profiles or communities.

The exact date when Google+ is going away for good wasn't announced until today, when Google released more detailed information about what will happen with its social media platform until will be shut down on April 2nd, 2019, when all your posts, comments, and photos will be gone forever.

Google cites "low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers' expectations" as Plus' downfall. Of course, this doesn't affect the more general Google Sign-in API. In the next few weeks, Google+ Sign In buttons will stop working and will be replaced by Google Sign in buttons in some cases.

On that date, Google+ accounts and pages will become inaccessible to users and content, including photos and videos from Album Archives, will begin to be deleted. Deletion of content from consumer Google+ accounts starts. It will remain active for G Suite customers and it will have some minor improvements to roll out for business platform.

For additional changes to Google+ features such as collections, circles, search, vanity URLs, and commenting in Blogger and other sites, see the Help Center article. Google says that old versions of the app will no longer be supported. Myself and the staff at Techaeris are all original Google+ users and we're sad to see the doors closing.

If you have any valuable data you'd like to save from the platform, Google has created step-by-step archiving instructions which you can find here.
