New York: Google is bidding adieu to Google Plus, world’s leading search engine after it failed to impress social network users unlike Facebook. On Tuesday, the company announced its most drastic step for breaking up Google Plus.
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.
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.
