    In my opinion removing google+ will be a big loss for the people who is just starting to get use to it. Its true that most of us is looking for a new and more useful for our task. But some of us like my mom who is not familiar in the new technology google+ for her is helpful enough for her to ask were to find the place that she want to visit. Although yes we can teach them how to use the new one but for them to familiarize it again i think they will still like the google+ or the older version of it.

    I don't think google+ has much of a future these days, bleeding off users so any marketing attempts there would go un heard of and would be quite the waste of effort. If it's a link to something hosted somewhere posting there would not be a bad idea but don't do anything google+ exclusive in my opinion.

    Anyone using Google plus should continue until they shut it down which am not sure it's going to happen because they have been saying it for long now and it hasn't happened yet. Let's enjoy it while it last.

    It might be rumors and I think that we shouldn't give up on google plus. I am there most of them just reading quotes and sharing.

    I also advertise my blog there although I don't have many followers. My blog is linked to my Google plus and I hope this are just rumors.

    I don't personally think that we should give up Google +. The features unique to Google+ are what make it valuable to businesses. These features help an organization stand out from their competitors, reap the benefits of the platform and perform better across their website, social and search.

    Many businesses have created either their own series of Google+ Hangouts or have held multiple, one-time events as a Hangout. Hangouts enable businesses to discuss topics of interest to their audience face to face, while including the input of others to ensure that an engaging conversation is occurring. I personally worked for a company before which uses Google+ and Hangouts to communicate with all the agents and team mates employed with the company. It is indeed very useful and reliable so I don't think we should give up on using it.

    I was reading about Google shutting down Google+ after doing a search on this and it seems like there have been other times where it was going to be shut down but they just made changes and came back.

    I think the same as you and that Google might just make a format or some other changes and go at it again.

    I have been hoping that they would just do something like that and not completely shut it down. I am getting some good responses from people on there so I would hate to lose that.
    I already use Facebook too but I am just not getting responses as much as I get in Google+. Do you get good responses from Facebook?

    I have heard before a number of times that Google+ is going to be shut down but it hasn't happened yet. I wouldn't believe it until I see some kind of official announcement from Google saying that they are going to shut it down.

    Since we are not seeing any kind of official announcement by Google themselves then maybe it is just all rumors or speculations by people.

    Since you said that you are getting some benefits from using it I would not give up on it until they close it down if they do that at all.

    Why give up on something that you are still benefiting from?

    One company that I used to work with was saying Google was going to be closing down Google+ for a couple of years yet it is still around.

    As long as you are getting something out of using Google+ then I would keep using it until they do close it down if at all.

    I was just thinking that if it was closing then my time would have been wasted so I would just stop using Google+ and spend my time on another social media website that will still be around in the future.
    That is a long time to be saying something is closing down for it to still be around. Maybe this information I found is just rumors.
    I think that they might be rumors too since it seems like this has been something that has been said for some years now.

    Do you get many +1's on Google+? I have started to get them more often and new followers too.

    That would be a good idea if you knew for a fact that it will be closing down for sure but since you don't know until they do it or there's an official announcement found then maybe you should hold off since you are getting some good from it.

    I haven't heard about them shutting down Google+ myself. I get a good number of people following me and many plus 1's there. Now I don't know if all that will be lost so it is a little discouraging to hear of this.

    I agree and that is what I will probably do.
    It is the same for me. I hope they do not close it but maybe just do some changes or something.

    It might just be rumors @Milana because I haven't seen anything official anywhere. I think they would at least make an announcement of some sort.

    I am getting some good benefits from it myself so this has me worried if I should stop using it now. I haven't heard or seen anything about them closing it down anywhere though.

    If you see for sure that they are closing it down please let me know if you have a chance.

    It could be just rumors but usually there are some truths to rumors on things this big. It depends on where you heard or saw the statement about them closing too and if they are reputable in their information.

    After reading this post of yours I did some searching around for information and it seems like they have said they were going to close it down on other occasions also but didn't so maybe they might just make some changes or alterations to it but keep it going.

    It would be nice if they did but I have not seen anything yet.
    If I find any reliable information on it I will share it on this post.
    I was just some random blog posts I think. They were not on any of the big websites that I can remember.
    Yes I also found somethings like that myself. That is what I am hoping is happening this time because it is working nicely for me.
