Google+ headed for the knackers yard (9 Oct,2018)

Google+ was a disaster from start to finish. YouTube users simply did not like behing told (at the point of a gun) that they *must* join or lose their YouTube accounts so even though it had hundreds of millions of accounts, its level of use was abysmal.

Even worse, it really screwed up the functionality and even accessibility of YouTube for many of us, which also left a nasty taste in some mouths.

So who will actually shed a tear for Google+, especially after we have been told that half a million people's private information was leaked due to a security hole in the platform?

Now I just sit, biting my nails in the expectation that when Google shuts down Google+, it will break something else in YouTube.

How many Aardvark users were regular Google+ users? If you were a regular user, what did you like about the platform. If you weren't, what was it that made Google+ unattractive to you?
