  • Hate to see it go Dec 13, 2018

    By James Inness
    This one. This is the app that I grew up with. Google+ has been my go-to all the time I’ve had it. It’s so unique, and it’s built to meet people across the world and communicate with them. It’s not plagued with corporations and people trying to rush to fame; in fact, fame is a goal that isn’t sought out much on this app. We’ve had our own good times here. Widely-spread inside jokes were made, harassers and threats were swiftly given the boot within a day or two, and even though we were a bit of an underground community, most acquaintances felt like family. Talking to strangers was the norm here, and gave us more friends to talk to. The site itself is great. Notifications are actually important and aren’t in your face. Comments, mentions, and +1’s are all of what you’ll see, and nothing like “someone you know is now following ____” will show up in the notifications tab. It tries to erase competition as best as it can and makes following fair game. Nothing can surpass the moments of Google+’s life. A whole community worked together (most of the time) without staff or celebrities having to tell people what to do. Though we still kept in touch with the outside world, we had our own trends and fads. I’ll miss this place when it’s gone. Google won’t feel like it’s for the people after they shut the site down and replace it with the business version. It reached top 100 in the App Store, bringing in new people that were given warm welcomes.

  • It’s okay but..... Jun 8, 2018

    By frostyhyena
    Do you devs even listen to your app/site’s users? Every single time you guys update G+, we get glitches, notification purges, and rapid loss of followers. And this recent update is terrible. Here’s a word of advice: LISTEN TO YOUR USERS. Seriously, we all hate the newest update. You can’t even see what people post when you click on their profile picture! Honestly, the previous update was so much better. I had such high hopes for this app, but y’all keep messing it up for the users. On behalf of all the people using Google+, please listen to what we have to say. These updates have been nothing but problematic, and it’s such a major inconvenience when you follow someone and realize you have no idea what kind of stuff they post. Don’t get me wrong, this is the best place to connect with people, but this new update is really irritating. All we ask is for our posts to be visible to the people who view our profiles again. Hopefully y’all listen instead of screwing all your users over like you’ve done so many times (I apologize if this sounds angry. But the new update is such a hassle to deal with.)

    Other than Facebook or Twitter with their crappy “Privacy Settings” G+ is the real thing, I’ve been on it for awhile now and I’ve made some cool new friends whom I known for a long time now and other than the “Bugs” it’s working great every update is getting better and better not complaining at all but other than that it’s super addictive I can’t put the phone/Tablet and I pad Down XD Please keep this app updated because I’d prefer to use this more than Facebook, I really don’t want one anyway but I really like Twitter I just joined a few days ago and I kinda like it but the so called “Privacy” needs to be fixed like people could see your tweets and replies and such that’s ok but people needs privacy but I do understand that Twitter is doing that for a reason- I’d totally recommend this app to some people but idk they prefer Facebook over any other Social Media Site

  • G+ is closing down on April 2, 2019! Feb 7, 2019

    By Empereur Napoléon Bonaparte
    It’s sad that this website is closing down on that day. This was my go-to app whenever I want to socialize with my real life friends, so we could find each other and move to Google Hangouts. Now that both Google+ and Google Hangouts will be gone soon, I am very sad. When I make new friends in the future, we won’t have an app where we can go online and talk in. I do know of another app I use, which is Discord, but my friends are clueless about Discord’s existence and never heard of it. Also, it’s hard to invite my friends to Discord because they don’t know it and have busy lives to log in each day. I know Facebook and Twitter are other options, but I don’t want to create accounts there because they ask for real names when I try making accounts, which I’m very uncomfortable with giving out to potential online strangers. I understand that Google felt like Google+ didn’t meet customers’ expectations, but I’m obviously active for more than 5 seconds! I still believe Google+ has a lot of potential. Even though the communities are smaller than Facebook’s, Google+ posts from the users are quality posts! There are no celebrity drama, and the bad people get kicked out easily. A lot of posts are very educational, which I really love about Google+. I’m devastated that it’s going to be gone on April 2 this year!

    So, it isn’t as huge as Facebook! It isn’t as old as Facebook! It isn’t as cluttered as Facebook and, it doesn’t get in your face about how many comments or messages are waiting for you! Or, how many are waiting to be your follower! If all of that doesn’t annoy you, then that’s fine! But for me, that’s what I dislike about FB! As for all the new sites, I checked out one and was so confused! Oh! not on one issue, but with everything I have to do to get in.. I already have YT and there is nothing there that’s exciting except to make videos and that has gotten bad! What G+ has is priceless! And, the reason is that it allows everyone to be creative, to be a social butterfly, to show their talent, to talk amongst themselves on acknowledgements and the list goes on and on! But the part that stands out the most is the friendships made from all around the world! Some do not have close family Or friends... This is their family! their friends! So why end something so powerful so soon? 4 years is not enough! Give it more it more time! Give the channels that stands out some gratitude! Better yet, ask us to help make G+ better then ever and outstanding next to all the sites put together! G+ might just be surprised! Nickname “cib”

  • Why is my favorite app still unusable? Jun 6, 2018

    By ShadowWarrior243
    I keep checking the App Store for an update to fix my app and I keep seeing bug fixes and stability improvements but what are they actually fixing because the app is still completely unusable on my IPhone 6+. My profile pic doesn’t load, no one’s post loads, their pictures are blank, Hell even my notifications are just blank white squares. I’ve had to use the browser as a work around for the past 2-3 months and now I’m getting impatient. This is my favorite app out of every app I’ve used because I enjoy chatting with my friends and posting stuff and now I can’t even use it due to Google’s incompetence to actually fix it. I’ve never had an issue like this before, it’s always worked perfectly fine. I’m only rating 2 stars because I’m completely dissatisfied with the fact it’s been unusable for months now, otherwise if it weren’t for that it would easily get 5 stars from me. I just want to be able to use it properly again, that’s all I’m asking.

  1. Passionate people, amazing content! Discover something new every day with Google+
  2. Connect with communities of people who share your interests, hobbies, common goals, or even just geographical location
  3. Build your own personalized home stream with the unique and inspiring content that appeals to you

  • Better Than Facebook Dec 19, 2018

    By Bass/Guitar Man
    The communities are the best. I like the fact that I can zero in to posts that interest me and not have to scroll through people posting a picture of their breakfast and the like. Music, sports, writing, books etc... I'm interested in, so I visit those communities. I'm on Facebook for 5 minutes in the morning I'm on Google + multiple times a day . I'm sorry that Google is shutting it down. I'm going to miss all the intelligently written articles, articles that I want to read. It's amazing that such a mindless app. like Facebook could be successful and apparently Google + does not have enough interest to sustain it. It's a sad commentary on just about every level. I hope that Google would reconsider its decision, but if not thanks for the great app.

  • 5 stars in heart Apr 5, 2019

    By FrankieMain
    I’m sad to see this app/site go. I’ve used it over four years and loved it the whole time. I still try to check google + a few times a day only to realize, I’m not getting it back. My friends, people I considered family and besties, I lost many now because of the closing of this place. Google + has always been a place for me to express myself and allowed me to be who I am and who I want to be. I loved the organization it had between the communities, collections, circles, and post, even the fact that you could go back to the posts that you had liked or commented on. Another app won’t be the same as the place I have called home for so long. You will be missed G+. Signing off, a personal consumer.

  • Great Social Media App Apr 9, 2018

    By Schmidty1993
    I love this app! It’s really great, I have a few little lag issues when scrolling the feed and it is kind of hard to find real people to be honest. But I prefer it more then Facebook! I’d get rid of Facebook if my wife didn’t have it. One of the things I’d say you could work on though is the bots. I see so many bots in many different areas show sex scandals and things like that. It would be great if you could crack down and start erasing the fake accounts on Google+ and make it a bit easier to find people and make friends. Other then those small issues, this all is great! Please keep it updated and keep up the good work!

  • Messaging Sep 20, 2018

    I haven't used this app for a while but so far it seems good. I just want to recommend that an option for personal messaging to other users within the app be added instead of having to hope that people have hangouts or an email connected. This would allow for easy communication between users.

I want to find out how to properly use google security features. I am now also attempting to incorporate Norton Core Router in System. I also want to get some other security items to use. I have had severe security problems for sometime now, and it is difficult for an old timer to incorporate in home system. Rating, good, more knowledge needed for this old man. Have to download and read any text files needed. My rating, you are trying to protect. I just haven’t arrived there yet. Old man problem. Thanks for the System. George Walker.

  • A review Sep 19, 2018

    By Pharaduse
    I don’t think there is anything in particular in relation to google plus that is bad. Having said that and, if the intention is to keep it alive, there needs to be a more strategic movement to getting users to use the platform more. As it is, none of my friends use this as their social media platform and I think, in large part, this deals with how it appeared as not very user friendly in the beginning. Additionally there hasn’t been a movement, I feel, by google to invest in inspiring users to utilize the platform. I wished more people used it as I do like the platform.

  • Updates Scare Me Mar 11, 2018

    By AtlHappy
    Though this is by far the best social media for grown folks and I go to it a lot, I’m always uneasy when Google+ updates. They are bound to take away a lovely feature. One of the worst updates was when were unable to view ALL of our communities at the onset. Now you have to go around the corner to see them when at first all we had to do was go across the street. Every time there’s an update you can be sure one of your favorite candies is no longer in Grandma’s candy dish. Google+ I hope you take our concerns to the Big Talk table.

    By S.S.C.Y
    It absolutely upsets me that situation had reached to a point where Google+ had to be shut down. I wouldn’t even be so upset if Facebook had shut down to be honest. Google+ was this place where I went when i felt like revisiting that 17/18 year old me, cause that’s the age i had gotten my first smartphone. I thought it would be there whenever i want to go there again. But sadly I receive the most shocking news today. This pandemic finally gave me time and this is what i come across. A little heartbroken to be honest.

    It’s hard to see this app in the state that it is now. I used to get so happy logging on and talking to all my friends. And now it’s nothing but a wasteland of corporations. This was by far the greatest social media site I’ve ever used, and Google took it away from me and millions of other users. Please, Google, if it means anything to you at all, we want a social media like it. Hell, give us Google Shoelace and make it exactly the same. We need you guys to come back.

  • Corporate Interest Declines Sep 25, 2018

    By SkinnyB/Lynn
    Four years old now, my Gplus family has become. Photography skills I’ve learned from the best across oceans. A bit of a sassy Poetess I’ve become, expressing my deepest emotions in words. Learning to play metaphorically with my own unique style ~ but where’s the smiles, banter, engaging with diverse cultures ~learning foundations of other religions ~ falling into poetry of humanity with peaceful collaborations? We’ve been separated, segregated ? Why did you gather friendships and then garnish our notifications and conversations? Every active post I read was a sad plea to the invisible corporate office deafened to build on our foundation. Ratings upon other SM was not our problem or complaint. Stocks and dollar distributions of Googles ‘Machine’ cut bk all the connections we so liked ~ unaffected the extrovert, while quietly goes the more introverted. My opinion ...while also listening to frustration of many in my ‘circles’ (if you remember circles)? +LynnTerrySkinnyB

    I went to Dr. Borshch at the urging of my Primary Care Doc at the time. I am a person who reads Reviews, so everything I read about this Doctor told me that he was someone who actually interacted with his Patients and listened to their concerns... what I got was just the opposite! I saw his P.A. Emilie and honestly it wasn’t UNTIL my last visit that she seemed to genuinely care about me as a person. She LISTENED TO ME and seemed to truly understand my situation. Dr. Borshch wouldn’t take 5-10 minutes to even speak with me!!! He simply refused to even consider helping me even by giving me Pain Medication for the next 30 days till I could find a new Doctor. I have Severe Fibromyalgia and to leave me or ANY patient to suffer like I have been for the past few weeks is unconscionable!! THIS is NOT what a Doctor who cares about Pain Management is supposed to be about!

  • Google Screwed Up on this Mar 26, 2019

    By BluesBrian
    Hard to believe that a big company like Google could screw up so bad. They had all of the possibilities of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook combined. This buggy app never came up to it’s potential. Prior Review: Clunky & Random Access & Crash: Hard to talk about the app without comparing Google+ with other social media. Basically if your attention span is stretched to the limit when you're on Twitter, can't limit your drivel to 140 characters, and can't conceive of searching for or organizing anything: This is for you! Can't give it 1 star for sucking, can't give it 5 stars for being amazing, so we're in the middle at 3 stars! Enjoy, it will crash on you, too!

    I was chatting with a fellow role-player when for some reason they were reported as spam and their comment was hidden and only shown to me. I didn’t do nothing and I had to undo it. When I apologized he didn’t respond; not even after three days. I’m not even sure if he blocked me because the app/site doesn’t have a function that shows whether a person blocked you or not. I would love it if you add the function that lets you know if anyone blocked or reported you. Thank you and have a wonderful day!
