There are many reasons behind the sunset of such a popular social Network.

Google cites "low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers' expectations" as Plus' downfall.

Users can download the required data by following the instruction manual that the company has provided.

Starting April 2, 2019, Google+ accounts and pages will be taken offline.

Google notes that photos and videos will be deleted in the process, and that the entire process may take months until completion.

The consumer version of Google+ will shut down on April 2.

Alphabet's Google had announced its plans to completely shut down Google+ back in December past year. When April rolls around, Google+ will not only close down, but data associated with consumer accounts will start to be deleted.

E-commerce norms to hurt consumers, pricing: Amazon CFO Brian Olsavsky
The company had a few years ago made a conscious decision to move away from driving sales through its in-house retailer WS Retail. Amazon and Flipkart themselves remain tight-lipped about the expected impact.

Options to create new Google+ profiles, Google+ pages, communities, or events are disabled. A study by digital marketing firm Stone Temple only confirmed Google+ ghost town status, reporting that less than 1 percent of the Google-wide 2 billion users ever did any real interaction with the platform. Google really pushed bloggers to integrate Google+ into their comment platform and now that is going away. Another feature that will be removed from Blogger by February 4 and other sites by March 7 is the ability to comment using Google+ on your own or other sites.

Google's social network, Google+, will start to disappear from next week, as the company prepares for the site's eventual closure in April. In the coming weeks, you will not be able to sign into websites with Google + and may be replaced with a Google sign in button.

Google+ sign-in buttons will go next.

There are different timetables in place for different types of Google+ user, but they are broken down into three categories: consumers, G Suite users and admins, and developers using Google+ APIs.

But you'll notice changes prior to the shutdown in April.

Last October, The Wall Street Journal revealed that data from 500,000 Google+ users had been exposed over a three year period, but the company had chose to keep quiet on the matter. Google says that old versions of the app will no longer be supported.
