Last October, the news cracked that Google+ had been the subject of massive data leakage affecting hundreds of thousands of users.

 

The event made Google decide that Google+ should be shut down. The company told the gag that the service would disappear within ten months.

 

"Google+ is shut down because of few users and challenges in maintaining a successful product that meets consumer expectations. We want to thank you for being part of Google+, "writes Google in a blog post.

 

Just a few months left
The company has also announced the official date: April 2, Google+ is down and your content is also being downloaded.

 

On February 4, you will no longer be able to create new Google+ profiles, pages, communities, or events.

 

Google also notes that comments you've posted on websites, ie through your Google+ account, will be deleted on March 7.

 

Download your content
However, saving your data from the site is not too late. You can still download your content, but you must remember to do it before April. You can find the instructions on how to download your content here.

 

Because the deletion will take some time, you will still be able to see some content on the service in the coming months.

 

But in April it is over.

 

This said Google
Google even had the following to say after the scandal was a fact last October:

 

"Every year, we send millions of alerts to users about privacy and security issues and issues. Every time user data may have been affected, we go beyond our legal requirements and base several different criteria - with our users in focus - when deciding whether or not to notify.

 

Our Privacy and Data Protection Office reviewed this matter and reviewed what data was involved if we were able to accurately identify the users to inform them whether there was evidence of abuse and whether there were any developers or users involved. None of these conditions were met in this case.

 

The review highlighted the essential challenge of running and maintaining a successful Google+ that meets users' expectations. Given these challenges and the very low usage of the Google+ Consumer Edition, we decided to end the consumer version of Google+. "
