Hope none of you use, or have used Google+ ?

Google are shutting it down after 7 years - partially due to a massive data breach that lasted 3 YEARS, which they have, by all accounts, tried to completely cover up and not tell anyone about.

And the possibly over the top, Daily Fail reported version (disclaimer - I've not read it!!)

It's one of those things which seems to be uploaded to ( or in some cases, already on ) Android tablets whether you want it or not.
It's also one of the things that I delete ASAP.

Typically, I see Google are claiming they're only pulling it because of the low uptake by 'private users'

Wasn't it that thing that nobody really wanted, there wasn't much of a demand for, and that Google tried to force down users' throats?

Much like that stubborn U2 album on every iPod that used to be sold...

Gutting news for both of their users I'm sure.
