Google+ is done for

58 posts in this topic

It makes sense, as a social network it's a total failure. Just keep the core user system as a common google account system(like microsoft account) for all google services and move the subdivisions that are used to the departments they belong and close the rest.

thank god. youtube's integration with google+ has been a disaster for me. it keeps trying to get me to comment under my real and when I deleted my google+ account to get it to stop doing that it's made it so I can't post on my phone and it still, for some reason, has my real name and old profile picture. I want google+ to die. Worst idea ever.

It had potential, but.... never really got there.

Google+ was one of the worst ideas to ever come out of Google. The social network itself is probably OK, but the forced integration took stupid to a whole new level.

the integration took it from an alright site to something everyone hated. The brand is unrecoverable now

The fact that I was forced to use a real name, meant I never even gave it a chance.

 

Apparently, I wasn't missing much.

Yay! The YouTube comment system will be usuable again soon. :D

Not so sure, since they will still keep the user system as a google account like system for universal google login, and most likely comments.

But yet the source said...

 

A Google spokesperson gave Ars the same statement the company gave TechCrunch: ?Today?s news has no impact on our Google+ strategy?we have an incredibly talented team that will continue to build great user experiences across Google+, Hangouts, and Photos.? On Gundotra's announcement post, Larry Page wrote "we?ll continue working hard to build great new experiences for the ever-increasing number of Google+ fans."

 

People can speculate all they want...but this is a wait and see situation.

I hope this is true, not a fan of the forced G+ integration as well. 

However this is still listed as a rumor.

The problem with Google+ is that it's just a me-too social network. It isn't about improving the user experience, it's about taking on Facebook and Twitter. Everytime I login it's prompting me to add people and it's incredibly tedious, while YouTube keeps trying to force me to use my real name - something I consider a serious privacy concern and safety threat.

 

I don't dislike Google+ but it does nothing for me.

Google+ doesn't suck, it's a well polished site with lots of great features that look and function just as good as Facebook.

 

The strategy was all wrong, it was too little too late and didn't pick up the momentum it needed to become successful. I'm happy to see it die, but in general it doesn't suck, the features will make better use elsewhere.

For all the peopel who say Google is denying this and it's nto going anywhere.

 

What part of googles history says they admit they're closing a service until they actually close it. most of their services that closed where rumors to close long before the closing was actually announced. the fact that google dnies the rumors means absolutely nothing. 

 

Doesn't mean the rumors are right, but the people who have claimed these rumors have far more credibility than google in this regard.

Google+ was a disaster, and I didn't like kitkat 4.4 that much either.

 

Not sure what google are smoking at the minute.  That said, I do like the idea of forcing people to use their real names.  What would internet trolls do then?

They would keep on trolling. 

 

they don't care that much, and you can just use another name anyway, they're not checking that they're actually real names.

As long as the service keeps running they can shut down all the integrations for all I care.

I don't use to post much on any social network, but Google+ communities are far more interesting than anything I've seen on any other of these social things.
