    Your personal Google+ account is going away on April 2, 2019

    I received this email yesterday:
    You've received thisemail because you have a consumer (personal) Google+ account or you manage aGoogle+ page.
    In December 2018, we announcedour decision to shut down Google+ for consumers in April 2019 due to low usageand challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers'expectations. We want to thank you for being part of Google+ and provide nextsteps, including how to download your photos and other content.
    On April 2nd, yourGoogle+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we willbegin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can download and saveyour content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videosbacked up in Google Photos will not be deleted.
    The process of deletingcontent from consumer Google+ accounts, Google+ Pages, and Album Archive willtake a few months, and content may remain through this time. For example, usersmay still see parts of their Google+ account via activity log and some consumerGoogle+ content may remain visible to G Suite users until consumer Google+ isdeleted.

    OK... My Bad... Not real sure why I freaked out about losing my #2 GMail/Email account.

    What happens after you delete your Google+ profile

    Deleting your Google+ profile will not affect certain other Google products, like Search, Gmail, and your Google Account.

    I got that message as well. I never actually signed up for one of those so I guess it just comes with a gmail acc't. I don't know what a google+ even does.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Fink, if you look at the photo I posted, it shows many but not all of the Google applications that come with a Gmail account. Google + is simple one of those... I never used it.

    I got the same message and some photographer friends of mine did too. They said their photos were housed there and they would lose the ones posted on PentaxForums because they'd no longer be linked from Google + is all.

    I ignored the message sent to me because I don't house my photos on Google +.

    I'm touched by their not wanting to reveal our private data.

    I kept getting customers who said they saw my listing on Google, but I don't have a web page, and they couldn't find the G page again. It took a few years for me to find out G had set up a page for me. Now I can't find it, because I have 4 Goo logins just for Youtube.

    And if they hadn't caught it, they wouldn't care.

    I don't think GoohellMyBusiness is affected.
