Google+ is walking dead

Google+ has seen better days. Like that 4 week sprint when everyone you knew manically signed up. It was pretty much downhill after that. Now, with the key champion of the social media platform departing from Google, its fate appears uncertain, as reported by TechCrunch:

What we’re hearing from multiple sources is that Google+ will no longer be considered a product, but a platform — essentially ending its competition with other social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

A Google representative has vehemently denied these claims. “Today’s news has no impact on our Google+ strategy — we have an incredibly talented team that will continue to build great user experiences across Google+, Hangouts and Photos.”

My one and only post to Google+, in which I demonstrate how non-intuitive the UI was at launch. There are 9 comments below which are a friend and myself discussing how nonplussed we are with it (pun intended).
