Erica Griffin remains the most thorough tech reviewer on the whole internet and I love it
@Supuhstar I kinda get G+ since it has been languishing this whole time, but even with that they ran it just long enough that the users were justified in thinking it would stay.
And as far as I'm aware Inbox was way better recieved and liked than Gmail app itself and an url shortener shouldn't be all that expensive to run, but closing it will absolutely destroy links which can't be corrected after-the-fact unless you know where they lead.
So, yeah. They're gutting what remaining trust I had.
The freakiest part is that they are actively slowly shutting parts down. So, like, you can't +1 comments and posts that are parts of events, but you can do on all others still.
And the notifications widget in the browser doesn't work but the one in the Android app does
I could never miss this moment.
How often do you get to be an active member of a dying social network, operated by one of the largest tech giants on Earth?
It's been such a weird and special experience, being on Google+ on its last day.
Small though it is compared to Twitter, Facebook, and that ilk... it's still such a large social network. There's so many people here just... doing whatever they want.
The mods are still at the helm but like... nobody cares if they get banned. We're just doing what we want.
Nobody's considering "is this +1 going to show up on my timeline?" or "is this against the community guidelines?"
