The Verge: Google is shutting down Google+ for consumers following security lapse

The Verge: Google is shutting down Google+ for consumers following security lapse. “Google is going to shut down the consumer version of Google+ over the next 10 months, the company writes in a blog post today. The decision follows the revelation of a previously undisclosed security flaw that exposed users’ profile data that was remedied in March 2018. Google says Google+ currently has ‘low usage and engagement’ and that 90 percent of Google+ user sessions last less than five seconds.” Think of all the resources Google kept pouring into this that could have gone into Google Reader. I’m not even going to comment on the UNDISCLOSED SECURITY FLAW.
