  • Google+The three-legged horse of the social media world is finally shutting down - but not because it's a continually awful experience. Following a massive data breach first reported on by The Wall Street Journal, Google announced today that it is shutting down its social network Google+ for consumers. The company finally admitted that Google+ never received the broad adoption or engagement with users that it had hoped for -- according to a blog post, 90 percent of Google+ user sessions last for less than five seconds.

    The company discovered a bug in one of Google+'s People APIs that allowed apps access to data from Google+ profiles that weren't marked as public. It included static data fields such as name, email, occupation, gender and age. 

    In a rare moment of candidness a Google spokesdragon stated "...user engagement on the service was low".

    Google+ will remain though as an Enterprise product where users don't get a choice of which platform to use.

  • hackerIn the wee hours of Wednesday morning, a host of prominent Twitter accounts were compromised and, as a result, began spouting swastika-laden propaganda in support of Turkey's president Recep Erdoğan ahead of a referendum next month which could consolidate his power. So now's a good time to check your own accounts and make sure you close the backdoor that let this happen to other people.
