Google+ is dead, Long Live Google+

Google quietly revealed last week that its unpopular Google+ social networking service is going to be split into multiple separate services, including Google Streams, Google Photos and Google Hangouts. The move follows a difficult few years for Google+, which was once seen as a connective layer across many of Google’s services for individuals.

I'm going to be happy when I can uninstall Google+ and still use Google Photos.

Does this mean we can get the search operator "+" back?

I wonder how this is going to work for Youtube? I hope they bring back the old comment system on Youtube and detach google+.

Google Plus was at one point early on as the next big social networking website. I don't know anyone who used it regularly. I always found the site to be ugly and un-user-friendly.

I know the actress Jeri Ryan was pretty big on the site when it 1st started.

Google+ was a total PITA for managing YouTube channels.
