HOUSTON: World’s leading search engine Google has decided to bid adieu to its social network Google+ (Google Plus) after it failed to impress social network users unlike Facebook.
Google+ was especially launched with an intention to give Facebook a ‘serious competition’ in the market- but it failed to make an impact.
Since last two months, Google has been chopping up Plus’ various features to make them a separate service and now it has been compelled to take the worst step.
Google has announced to break the social network into two distinctly separate products: Stream and Photos.
Previously, many tasks within Google products (such as, say, commenting on a YouTube video) required a Google Plus profile, but that won’t be the case moving forward.
“People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier,” Bradley Horowitz, Google’s vice president of photos and sharing, wrote in a company blog.
Google has also announced to add a new feature to Plus ‘Google Plus Collections’ which allows users to share which lets users share and read posts sorted by existing topics like sneakers, gluten-free recipes and Ireland or all-new user-generated topics.
