At the Guardian, we don't really see our desktop traffic going away as much as we see our mobile traffic growing rapidly around the world. Which makes me question the usefulness of the term 'mobile shift' for something that much rather looks like a 'mobile expansion'. 

And yes, of course, in terms of the various loyalty and engagement metrics (frequency of visits, session time, page views per visit etc.) our mobile readers and viewers, especially in our apps, are outperforming our desktop users.

Some SEO-editors have spent years convincing their newsroom staff to set up g+ profiles and maintain them to then link author-info in articles to these g+ profiles. And now Google quietly abandons the feature.
