Any suggestions on my 60k Google Community that really just started to kick of?
Migrate them to forum!
I knew it was coming, but still surprised they're closing it. Never quite took off like they wanted it to.
Clickbait thread title. Not cool.
It's just Google+ and that's a good thing. Wasn't one of their greatest features anyway.
Tell them to subscribe to your newsletter: daily, weekly, monthly
It was googles way of trying to be something they aren't, I won't miss it.
Good riddance to something I never asked for, never wanted and was essentially told I needed in order to keep using my youtube account.
Hopefully google learned their lesson with this. And may this "service" never come back.
Finally, Google+ was useless anyways.
I never even used it and so it doesn't bother me, used it for YouTube but that's all LOL
Making it into an site or move to another platform is the best option
I actually liked G+, it had a lot less... BS than FB/Twitter? It felt a bit more centred and positive compared to those two for the few people who used it.
Unfortunately the way they executed it was extremely poor and forced.
I wouldn't be surprised that they chose April 2nd for the date and not April 1st because they feared people wouldn't take it serious and just think it was an April fool's day joke. As for Google+, I never used it so no loss for me and probably most everyone else as well.
I kinda liked Google+ but the reason why I don't use it much is because while it sends ranking signals to my site, the issue is that you don't really get that much traffic from it unless you have a large following. Getting new users was pretty hard, as well on that network. Hopefully the next iteration of their network idea implements issues, problems, and improvements for all facets of Google+'s failure.
I don't just want it to be replaced (which is happening) for fixes, I want improvements, I want them to actually, genuinely understand the issues with Google+ rather than ignoring them and not caring. I want them to learn their mistakes.
For people's information, though: They're closing Google+ because of a combination of things, not just because a lot of people hate it. It also has to do with the security issues that it has. It was discovered that there were leaks where it would reveal user info.
It doesn't really have much to do with security. It's more PR, it's a service which really doesn't do anything for them *and* it gives an excuse for them to be dragged before Congress at a time where they really want to escape the heat and just let Facebook deal with that on it's own.
One of the problems with Google is that they're really bad at communicating with people and marketing in general.
