After a massive data breach saw the theft of 500,000 users’ details and the decline in popularity against other social media sites like Facebook, Google has announced it is shutting down Google+ by July 2019. It’s sad times here at Gifville. Google+ was one of the first official sources and suppliers of our GIFs and it is a fruitful alliance. I also use Google+ to promote my other blog, HEM News Agency. We’ve seen the loss and decline of GeoCities, Vine and Myspace. Now another tech heavyweight is soon to be history.
