We are sunsetting Consumer Google+ in August of 2019
Recently, we announced the decision to sunset the consumer version of Google+. Before anything else, we want to sincerely thank all of you. G+ has had a wonderful run, and it would not have been the same without you. Whether you use Google+ once a day or every few months, we appreciate your contributions over the years.
Given the challenges of creating and maintaining a successful Google+ that meets consumers’ expectations and the declining use of the platform, we believe this is the right decision.
We’ll provide more details right here on Google+ about how to export and save your personal content soon, and will give you time to do so. We expect to fully wind down the consumer version of Google+ in August of next year.
From all of us on the Google+ team, thank you for making this a wonderful place to share.
