So. Much. This.
I think this article best sums up my current feelings on the subject. I know it was silly...I KNOW it is...and I know that we loyal plussers are just a small part of the millions of Google users...
But I honestly thought, in my heart of hearts, that Google wouldn't burn us. We were their most outspoken evangelists. My own love of Google products extended to every thing from their nexus phones to their tablets to laptops to the Nest I am still lusting after, to 4 Chromecasts and one Chromecast audio, to a Google Home and 2 Home minis. LOYALTY.

But loyalty has to go both ways. +Google+ , +Google , I get that you want to court the mainstream. That makes total sense. But... BUT... BUT!!!! YOU HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FANS! IF YOU BURN US TOO OFTEN, WE WILL LEAVE!

You know what is dumb? I literally feel personally hurt by this. After all the focus groups I have been a part of, after all the beta testing I have done, after all the surveys studies I have filled out, and phone interviews, I mistakenly believed that my opinion mattered. I won't make that mistake again.

So the G+ is shutting down. I'm on the BookFace but I'm don't like using that platform. I'm on the Twitters but I like that even less than BF.

I'm moving over to the MeWe. They are still actively developing the platform (which has improved a lot since I first checked it out back in April.) You can find me at https://mewe.com/i/jeff.stoner

Once there, check out the MeWe Welcome group. Introduce yourself and mingle with the folks: https://mewe.com/join/mewe_welcome

Almost forgot...most recent blood work came back. Just by adding exercise I lowered my A1C by a full point. So there's that.

I don't know why but this makes me laugh. So. Much.

I've never had a would-be assassin apologize after taking out my kidney.
