Is the G+ Photography Community Dying?

Is it me, or has anyone noticed how slow G+ has been recently? But its more than that. I also don't see as many familiar faces as i used too. Die hards that joined and were very active from around 2 years ago.. barely touch base here anymore.. opting to post more actively on Facebook and other platforms? Other friends deleted accounts for a variety of reasons. And then recently i was sad to learn that a core G+ photography theme #MacroMonday is closing it's page with its original curators 'retiring.  'What does it mean? 

I started noticing people leaving and the change just over a year ago when communities were introduced and more changes were made to the SUL. Is it the communities? Has it changed how G+ photographers engage and relate on here potentially for the worse?  (I.e, people are here we just don't see them or their work as much anymore since they are being posted in communities) Is it the SUL that people are tired of --with a baffling select group of photographers getting the lion's share of engagement and interaction on here based on cronyism? Is it all the changes G+ has made to the look and feel and more importantly the notification systems as well has the 'recommended' algorithms? Are our posts just not reaching each other the way they used to and/or is G+ is simply not 'showing' us more work of those in our circles? In  G+'s quest to personalize,  have they inadvertendly created exclusion? Or is G+ too glitchy now..with commenting problems and technical issues sharing etc?  Or is it something else entirely that i'm missing?  

I know i'm not the only one wondering this as others have mentioned it to me and others have left or are all but gone?  I would love to hear other peoples opinions on this or any answers people might have! 

(p.s and then i'm laughing as i don't even know if anyone is going to see this to reply?) :)

Video in Photoshop
I did a pre-conference workshop at #Photoshop  World in Atlanta last week. It still comes to an amazing surprise to photographers and designers that you can actually use Photoshop to produce short #Video  work and slideshows. It's not trying to be Premiere - but you can actually do some cool stuff with it.

To put it to the test, we went through some sample footage I took of +Jenn Concepcion  when we were out at  Jade Mountain with +Joe McNally - It came out pretty decent for last minute!

I know this isn't the point, but why'd you show her putting her keys down on the table? See "Chekhov's gun."

The Reichstag dome is one of the most interesting architectural subjects I've photographed. I love all the swoopy lines. Thanks, Berlin!

+RC Concepcion --Contact our technical support. It's possible they may be able to do a workaround for you...it's not supposed to work, but they might just be able to find a way.  When you contact them, be sure to put in your OS/host applications just to make sure it's stuff that HDR Efex Pro 1 can run on.  You can contact support here:  https://support.google.com/nikcollection/?hl=en#topic=3288093
