Google announced on Monday that the Google+ will be diminished for all consumers. Their article, “Project Strobe: Protecting your data, improving our third-party APIs, and sunsetting consumer Google+,” presents data that they have found over the past nine months. They have seen that Google+ had a large bug in its program, so many profiles may have been shared through their account.

Google+ will continue for businesses, but they do not present their complete future plans for Google+, except sharing that they will continue to use Google+ through GSuite.

Google+ should be shut down by August 2019. They will reach out to all users with a method to download your posts. For a better understanding of the changes, check out the article on The Motley Fool: “Google Plus Is Going Away (for Consumers)”.
