By this time, the hardships that Google+ is having is no longer a secret. There had been a time when the search giant Google wanted everyone to think that everything’s fine – especially in 2015 when they cited a 540 million active user figure – but things have changed now.
Recently, the company announced that their social network will be getting a new Android app, stating that this is the “culmination of a complete rewrite of many core features.” This actually brought back hopes for many people that Google had plans to put the platform elsewhere, but the other Google+ news was quite discouraging.
Google France has announced recently that it will be shutting down its official page for Google+, letting users know to follow them on Twitter or Facebook instead. There is nothing more telling than the idea of asking your users to follow pages from other social media channels other than your own.
