Trying out several as a replacement. Right now I like Reddit. Simple to post, links are do-follow, and the site has a high DA.

Been hearing of the impending demise of G+ for so long that I should really check Snopes to see if it is true.

I allocate my social media time based on ROI, not on whether I have a vacancy in my list, so if it does go away and nothing else pops up to replace it I will just not worry about it.

I thought it was already gone about two years ago. I’ve been trying to do less social media lately, so I am fine with it closing the doors.

For me it's a "throwaway" and when it goes away, it goes away. But I'm not adding anything new... the impact of social media on the bottom line is over-stated if you ask me.

Get along little doggie... (shrill whistle, whip snap sound) Tend the others in the social media coral and reallocate the time to improve what you already have and herd/ Keeping up with what you already have in the large family of social media outlets will keep us all busy in new reinvented ways right?

It won't be a big loss for most people, and most don't use it for marketing.

This won't impage other Google services such as Google My Business, which most businesses actually use.

As a social media platform it was a failed experiment from the beginning. I used to use it and teach others to use it, but it never really got full market adaptation.

Yes, I remember the Google press release.  They're making it a private company focused social network.  Microsoft has a similar offering.  My last job stood up an instance of it.  Not a whole lot of traction.

I take the pain out of social media marketing

Google+ just never got wings. There is no need to replace it. 

I think most people would be better served dropping all but a couple of their social media channels and focus on getting more traction with them. 

Think of social media as a wall of noise you have to get through to be heard. If you are unfocused, you are like a flashlight, never having any effect. But if you focus that energy into a narrow beam, you can bore a hole in that wall...
