I am setting up camp at WordPress.com, and importing my old G+ content there. This will be my permanent home and if you use WP and/or use a Gravatar, it should be easy to follow me there. I also have a firehose RSS stream :P

"Manage your Notifications": After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you'd like to receive similar notifications in the future, you can update the notification settings for your individual Google products.

As usual, it's not clear whether or not this will affect the notifications widget on G+ itself. Google's standards for clarity in exposition remain uncorrupted. Which is to say: entirely inadequate.

Otherwise, the article addresses Google Photos, Hangouts Chat, and Google+ (G Suite users).

Just a reminder that when G+ goes belly up, there will still be a The Division 2 group at MeWe.

Maaan, I'm going to miss G+ :(

Version 1.7 of Google+ Exporter is out with several new cool features, such as being able to export only your own posts from a community!
Hi Everyone,

We've just released Google+ Exporter, an application that helps you to export your Google+ feeds (profile, pages, collections, communities, including all comments) to Wordpress 4.x and 5.x Backup, Blogger Backup and JSON file.

Download latest Google+ Exporter version from https://gplus-exporter.friendsplus.me

Another available option is to export all posts published to profile, pages, collections, and communities to JSON file, including all comments!

More details on Google+ Exporter web site https://medium.com/google-plus-exporter

Transform exported JSON data can into imports for other services, or you can use JSON export as a full generic backup of your posts.

The free version of the application enables you to download up to 800 posts per every single Google+ feed (profile, page, collection, community). You can buy a license key to get unlimited experience.

I would love to know your opinion, suggestions or requests. Thank you!

UPDATE version 1.7.0 / 14-1-2019:

Delphi Developers Archive (Experimental)

https://delphi-developers-archive.blogspot.com

The posts are searchable by tag list or free text search.

FYI - This is work in progress, and I hope to improve the following issues:
- Some posts have erroneous titles
- Some posts are missing attribution of the original poster
- Some 600 posts are missing due to an inexplicable quota error during import

Comments on the archived posts are currently disabled until the import is finalized.
