Google names next victim as killing spree continues

Google ends up shutting down more than one out of every three services it offers, and the serial killer?s next victim has been identified. As of August 9th, Google Latitude will be no more. ?Google Latitude will be retired on August 9th, 2013,? Google said in a post on its support website. ?Products being retired include Google Latitude in Google Maps for Android, Latitude for iPhone, the Latitude API, the public badge, the iGoogle Gadget, and the Latitude website at maps.google.com/latitude.? The news comes just a week after Google shuttered its widely used Google Reader RSS feed reading service. What should people who still use the Latitude social network to share their location with friends and family do? Shockingly, Google suggests using Google+ instead. ?You can share your location with your friends on Google+ using the Google+ Android app,? the company noted on its site. ?The ability to share your location on Google+ on iOS will be coming soon.?

...I was thinking something bad was happening somewhere in the world and Google was giving us live updates on the event.

Got to love sensationalist headlines.  The best headline I saw about this says "Google retiring Latitude on August 9th, pushes Google+ instead"...which is much better.   Whatever attracts readers I guess.

 

Anyway, make sense to move more things to Google+.  Especially if G+ does the same things at Latitude.
