Google is shutting down Google+ by August 2019

Google announced plans to shut down their social media platform after news came out of a security breach this past Spring that released the private information for 500,000 users. Google+ has never been able to compete successfully with Facebook or Twitter and my guess is that the data breach along with the new security laws in the EU were enough for Google to toss in the towel. Looks like they have decided that it is not worth the time and effort to fix and bring up to speed with all of the new privacy laws. So, bye bye Google+, I have to admit aside from posting videos there from YouTube I never really used that social media platform.
