Surprised to see #Forbes posting about #GooglePlus post #GooglePlusShutdown: https://www.forbes.com/sites/johanmoreno/2019/05/26/after-its-public-shutdown-google-users-continue-to-mourn
Posting to 'public' or collections on Google+ no longer seems possible, even for G Suite users. While #GSuite users have remained to be able to set their post visibility on #GooglePlus to public, as well as post to Collections, post the consumer #GooglePlusShutdown this no longer seems to be an option anymore either. #GPlus currently seems restricted to domain-only and (public/private) Community posts (though public Communities can also no longer be created) - 1/2
While I did get him to say Hoffsome, I never got him to #photobomb one of my photos. :(
post-blast Hiroshima photos, Google Plus
*Google+ Ghosttown: Hauntingly like Hiroshima*
Walking the wasteland that is the #GooglePlus's #GhostTown, is hauntingly like walking through post-blast #Hiroshima: https://www.thesun.co.uk/archives/news/155844/the-shadows-of-hiroshima-haunting-imprints-of-people-killed-by-the-blast/
So... by popular request Google added the ability to export posts made to public Google+ Communities you are a moderator or owner of.
However, apparently they decided that Comments should not be included in this archive.
Because, you know, interaction in a community is not important/relevant? 🤔 🤷♂️
Had a refreshing #nap after having a day that had been kinda eating up my spoons.
Just sat down behind my laptop with a cup of tea after downing a mug of cultured milk with blackberry sirup. #BeardGrabber should be asleep for the night, so let's see if I can get some coding done. :)
It's a bit sad to realise though that the things I write now, won't be useful anymore in a few weeks.
Is it just me, or has #Google already closed off the #GooglePlus APIs?
I'm getting 204 No Content results for all Activity#get and Comment#get requests, and empty "items: " list results for Activity#list and Comment#list queries.
Or is it just me, and have I been shadowbanned?
You can try via the API Explorer: https://developers.google.com/+/web/api/rest/latest/activities/list?authuser=2&apix_params=%7B"userId"%3A"me"%2C"collection"%3A"public"%7D
Interestingly btw, the #GooglePlus (Web and REST) APIs are already randomly returning HTTP 204 and 404 responses, even for valid requests, which forced me to implement automatic and manual retries of API queries.
#PlexodusTools update for #Blogger owners who had #GooglePlus Comments widget enabled for their blog:
https://github.com/FiXato/Plexodus-Tools has had some big updates in the past week, specifically the https://github.com/FiXato/Plexodus-Tools/blob/master/README.md#google-comments-on-blogger-blogs-exporter section.
bin/export_blogger_comments.sh can be used to archive all #GPlus Comments for your Blogger blog.
Note, most of these tools can also be used if you use Google+ Comments for Sites.
I.e., people could follow all of my posts, but for instance opt-out of my Star Trek, or Music toots, without having to resort to hashtag- or keyword-exclusion filters.
Alternatively, people who would only be interested in my Development toots, could subscribe just to a Dev Collection instead.
I guess I should open a #FeatureRequest issue on Github?
Google+ Exodus Collection

PSA regarding Google Data Takeout 'Archive Incomplete' Errors:
If you have been encountering the #ArchiveIncomplete error while doing a #GooglePlus export via #GoogleDataTakeout, this this might be worth reading: https://plus.google.com/112064652966583500522/posts/e49cG1NW6zb
Do you have a Blogger blog that uses Google+ Comments rather than the native Blogger comments?
Then you have only about 2 days left to archive your comments before Blogger removes them from all Blogger blogs, and they are not included in your Google Data Takeout: https://plus.google.com/112064652966583500522/posts/EJukQAAfFrV
