More Changes to Google+

Jul 28, 2015

Google+ has been on social media life support for quite some time, but Google recently took another step toward dismantling the ailing network. In a blog post, VP of streams, Bradley Horowitz announced several changes to the Google+ experience, including that you will only need a Google account (not a Google+ profile) to use other services, like YouTube.

If you already created a Google+ profile that you don't plan on using, the post also says that there will be new ways to manage and removing those public profiles. Meanwhile, Google+ will focus more on allowing the people who do use it to "share and enjoy posts organized by the topics you care about" through new features like Google Collections.
