Back in 2011, Google launched its social network Google Plus, begging the question: Do people want or need another social network that isn't really any different than all the other social networks?
And today, seven years later, the answer is officially . . . NO.
Google just announced it's officially killing off Google Plus next August.
So if you have any important stuff on there, you have about a year to download it . . . but, realistically, you don't. No one does.
And that's why Google Plus is now getting killed off . . . it never really caught on and basically NO ONE uses it. But it's still kind of a surprise to see it die considering how HARD Google pushed it when it launched.
One more note: It's probably a good thing you didn't have any info on there, because Google ALSO made another announcement yesterday . . . a, quote, "bug" left hundreds of thousands of Google Plus users' info exposed for years.
