GOOGLE+ SHUTTING DOWN - 11 October 2018

Sorry there was no post this past weekend but had computer problems.

GOOGLE+ SHUTTING DOWN

Link to  The Verge article regarding Google+ shut down.

https://www.theverge.com/2018/10/8/17951890/google-plus-shut-down-security-api-change-gmail-android

Have tried two Google+ alternatives:

Mewe      https://mewe.com  as Craig Stewart Manitoba Canada
Pluspora  https://pluspora.com/users/sign_in 

In the brief time I've used them I prefer Mewe. Pages load much faster for me. Privacy policy is better. Both are similar to Google+. Hash tags are used which is new to me but not that difficult, if I can remember to use them.
12 Oct update - Have tried both MeWe and Pluspora. I prefer MeWe and will continue with it. Both seem to be good sites I just prefer MeWe.

Sorry to see Google+ go.
