For those still using Google’s social network experiment, it really is time to move on.
Google today has announced a revamped timeline for sunsetting the Google+ service. The reason lies behind a newly found bug in its software that could expose customer data. Google says no customer data has been exposed to date over this new bug, but to ensure nothing is compromised it is shutting down its API services to third parties within 90 days.
Additionally, the company has modified the overall service shutdown from August 2019 to April 2019.

Note that these changes impact the consumer version of Google+. Google+ will live on as an Enterprise option for GSuite customers, acting as a business community mechanism more similar to Lotus Notes than Microsoft Teams or Slack.
