So, Google+ integration with Gmail, YouTube, and Search/Knowledge Graph all seem to be being deprecated gradually. G+ is being isolated from the rest of the Google empire.
Given that G+ makes no money itself, and will have less ties into those products that do, I think it is very real to consider the possibility that Google is planning on shuttering Google+. As Google+ aficionados that we are, that begs the question: Where do we go?
I really don't like G+ anymore. It's slow, it's buggy, and Google keeps making it more difficult to follow my friends' posts. But I'm here mostly because of all of you that I talk to. Where would you go if Google+ was to get a shutdown date?
Neither Facebook or Twitter have a particularly strong traction with me. Facebook emphasizes friends and friends of friends communication only, whereas I enjoy a lot of public interaction here. And Twitter's character limit makes commentary too short for real intellectual discourse. What are your thoughts?
