Google+ is going to close -- in 10 months. I've been asked a lot recently, "What this means for Ingress?" In the short term, nothing. We will still be cross-posting information to G+, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. In the long term, we are talking about and exploring many different ideas.

As a player, former player community organizer, and now community manager for Ingress at Niantic, I am acutely aware of what Google+ meant to Ingress and in particular the use of its Community tool. I'm hoping we, Niantic, can help players with the transition off Google+. What that looks like, I don't know at this point. But I have some ideas. This isn't catching us flat footed though and we have already had sporadic conversations for a while about what a post Google+ world looks like. More to come...
