It's been a few months since the news hit, that the Google + social network was closing down. It made sense--it didn't catch on like other social media platforms. It was just...there--a reliable place to go.
Now, it'll join the others that have gone the way of all the earth.
It's been interesting reading some of the farewell posts on the website. It's normal for people to express their thoughts and memories. For some, Google + was amazing, wonderful, a place to connect, to communicate, to associate with others.
For me...well, it was a place for an occasional funny post and to see some beautiful photography.
Because it was created, it had to end. Eventually Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram--they'll all die, and the people who interact on those sites will have to find something else to take its place. Today it's Google +. Tomorrow it'll be another one.
Goodnight Google + and all involved. You were the old reliable place to hang out. Looks like we'll need to find a new place to go.
