[Google+ Shutdown] Updated Information From Google
« on: January 30, 2019, 04:54:37 pm »
Hi, Everyone!

Today, Google announced their updated timeline for the Google+ shutdown.  Here are the main points:

  • As early as February 4th, you will no longer be able to create new Google+ profiles, pages, communities, or events.
  • The Google+ feature for website comments will be removed by Blogger by February 4th and other sites by March 7th.  All Google+ comments on all sites will be deleted starting April 2nd.
  • Google+ sign-in buttons will stop working in the coming weeks, but in some cases will be replaced by a Google sign-in button.
  • Google+ Community owners and moderators who are downloading data from their Community will gain additional data for download starting early March 2019.  That includes author, body, and photos for every community post in a public community.
  • On April 2nd, all Google+ accounts and pages will be shut down and Google will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts.  Photos and videos from Google+ in users' Album Archive and Google+ pages will also be deleted.  Photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.

In my blog post, I've included relevant links for everyone to refer to.  This includes Google's official support press release and FAQ from today (1/30/2019) and an article link on how to back up your Google+ data using Google Takeout.  I've also included a link to Google+ Exporter which is a 3rd-party option of getting your Google+ data.  This service promises to export your info into a well-documented structure, and it's free up to 3,000 Google+ posts.

Here is my blog post link: https://themodelstash.blogspot.com/2019/01/google-shutdown-updated-information.html

Again, if you haven't done so already, please start backing up your data.  Don't procrastinate!

Stay tuned...
