Hate to see it go
This one. This is the app that I grew up with.
Google+ has been my go-to all the time I’ve had it. It’s so unique, and it’s built to meet people across the world and communicate with them. It’s not plagued with corporations and people trying to rush to fame; in fact, fame is a goal that isn’t sought out much on this app.
We’ve had our own good times here. Widely-spread inside jokes were made, harassers and threats were swiftly given the boot within a day or two, and even though we were a bit of an underground community, most acquaintances felt like family. Talking to strangers was the norm here, and gave us more friends to talk to.
The site itself is great. Notifications are actually important and aren’t in your face. Comments, mentions, and +1’s are all of what you’ll see, and nothing like “someone you know is now following ____” will show up in the notifications tab. It tries to erase competition as best as it can and makes following fair game.
Nothing can surpass the moments of Google+’s life. A whole community worked together (most of the time) without staff or celebrities having to tell people what to do. Though we still kept in touch with the outside world, we had our own trends and fads.
I’ll miss this place when it’s gone. Google won’t feel like it’s for the people after they shut the site down and replace it with the business version. It reached top 100 in the App Store, bringing in new people that were given warm welcomes.
It’s okay but.....
Do you devs even listen to your app/site’s users? Every single time you guys update G+, we get glitches, notification purges, and rapid loss of followers. And this recent update is terrible. Here’s a word of advice: LISTEN TO YOUR USERS. Seriously, we all hate the newest update. You can’t even see what people post when you click on their profile picture! Honestly, the previous update was so much better. I had such high hopes for this app, but y’all keep messing it up for the users. On behalf of all the people using Google+, please listen to what we have to say. These updates have been nothing but problematic, and it’s such a major inconvenience when you follow someone and realize you have no idea what kind of stuff they post. Don’t get me wrong, this is the best place to connect with people, but this new update is really irritating. All we ask is for our posts to be visible to the people who view our profiles again.
Hopefully y’all listen instead of screwing all your users over like you’ve done so many times (I apologize if this sounds angry. But the new update is such a hassle to deal with.)
G+ is closing down on April 2, 2019!
It’s sad that this website is closing down on that day. This was my go-to app whenever I want to socialize with my real life friends, so we could find each other and move to Google Hangouts. Now that both Google+ and Google Hangouts will be gone soon, I am very sad. When I make new friends in the future, we won’t have an app where we can go online and talk in.
I do know of another app I use, which is Discord, but my friends are clueless about Discord’s existence and never heard of it. Also, it’s hard to invite my friends to Discord because they don’t know it and have busy lives to log in each day.
I know Facebook and Twitter are other options, but I don’t want to create accounts there because they ask for real names when I try making accounts, which I’m very uncomfortable with giving out to potential online strangers.
I understand that Google felt like Google+ didn’t meet customers’ expectations, but I’m obviously active for more than 5 seconds!
I still believe Google+ has a lot of potential. Even though the communities are smaller than Facebook’s, Google+ posts from the users are quality posts! There are no celebrity drama, and the bad people get kicked out easily. A lot of posts are very educational, which I really love about Google+. I’m devastated that it’s going to be gone on April 2 this year!
